Hi gnokii-users / developers,


Seasons greetings to you all!


Thank you for creating gnokii!!!


I have gone though the FAQ @

Unable to access  (may be not working J)

I have skimmed through the 207 threads @


I couldn’t find answers to the questions given below J

I apologize for the length and number of questions!


I am talking in the context of Bluetooth!


1. How to authentically say that this nokia mobile model supports F-Bus?

   For example new model X2-00 is supported by gnokii with model = 6250

   in config file. Is there any command/F-Bus-message sent to mobile in

   response to which, would indicate that this mobile supports nokia F-Bus?


2. What are the functionalities/features/operations possible using nokia F-Bus?

   I am able to read/write/delete contacts information in X2-00.

   I could see IMEI, alarm, model RM-618 (NOT X2-00), calender, NOT able to

   read/write/delete sms. How can I find, which F-Bus features are supported by

   a particular model over F-Bus?


3. what are the APIs exposed by gnokii library for F-Bus? How to run 'testit'

   with a different config file? What all does testit do?


4. From configuration file and parts of source code, I could understand that

   apart from F-Bus, gnokii supports m/m2bus, cbus, AT, gnapplet, symbian

   protocols, How to distinguiesh F-Bus messages / options / commands /

   features / functions from others?


5. I could observe that gnokii supports MySQL and PostgreSQL Database as

   backend. Can it also store in plain text with some specific format without

   such database support, I can see we can store phone contacts as ; separated

   fields, is this facility available for other storage like sms / calendar /



6. I am more interested in communicating over bluetooth using FBus mode, how

   does these lines from config file affect?

# If you use dlr3 or dlr3p cable for nokia phones in FBUS mode (ie.

# you don't use model = AT) you may want to use 'dlr3p' value here.

# Note that it is recommended and currently the best way to use this

# cable with nk6510 driver.


7. Explain this from configuration file of gnokii.

# Set this to 1 if you want to break your phone with xgnokii. Works only

# with few Nokia models and FBUS communication.


allow_breakage = 0


8. Are there versions in F-Bus? Any specifications document available for F-BUS?


9. gnokii --identify reads mobile model from configuration, isn't there a way to

   let the mobile tell us what model it is?


Kindly guide me…

You are my last resort, waiting for response…
