When I had problems with the cable connection, I was advised on this
list to use bluetooth. It helped.

If you don't want to use bluetooth, then the first step would be to
strace -f -o gnokii.log gnokii --identify (possibly even -e
trace=open,close,read,write,ioctl) to find out which ioctls FreeBSD
doesn't like (FWIW, I didn't have that problems under Linux). If I were
in your shoes, I'd try to return to FreeBSD lists with that information,
since the answer is probably not gnokii-specific.

With kind regards,
