I think it is just fine. See below.

This is debug log. All it means is that your phone model was not
configured by gnokii so far. We follow the default path, which is not
supported by your phone. So we try the alternate path and it succeeds
-- this is where you got contact gnokii-ml message.

I have added your phone model into gnokii and when you try git version
you should see neither of these two messages. I have added your name
to the changelog, hopefully I didn't misspell it, if you could verify

Looks sane. But actual content is up to you to verify.

Well. I guess it is after some inactivity? It might be possible
indeed. Probably you could automate it somehow.

Please note, that there is an alternate way do handle, described on
wiki, using dku2libusb connection. Then you'd avoid all these kinds of
problems (probably).

take care,
