Hello gnokii users,

I've managed to make two phones work with gnokii for sending and receiving messages. The phones are Nokia 2330c (VGA camera; no external memory) and Nokia c2-01 (the one with a 3.2 Mp camera and external memory).

The relevant portions of the config file are: (works for both models)
port = xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx ; to get the phone's port, press *#2820# on the phone's keypad model = series40 ; I've tried all the different phone models, including AT -- they didn't work connection = bluetooth ; this is what works for me; haven't managed to do it with a usb connection

I've used both phones heavily in an application for delivering simple learning modules, using SMS, to farmers (it's a free service).

However, some things have to be done manually; in particular, deleting messages. After downloading all messages to the computer with -getsms, I have to manually (on the phone) use Mark All, then Move to another folder (I can delete them later; I postpone deleting as a precaution).

I wish I could use gnokii's delete facilities, but I haven't managed to make them work on these two phones. The phone's message database gets mangled, if I use gnokii for this.

If anyone has managed to do so, I would appreciate hearing from you.

I would also like to hear if you know some Nokia models with bluetooth that work very well with gnokii for receiving/sending SMS AND deleting them automatically from the phone after a --getsms.

Finally, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Pawel Kot, Daniele Forsi, and the rest of the gnokii team for a very useful software.

Greetings to all,

Roberto Verzola
