Your advice was correct to appraoch the freebsd users group

The members advised me to try the various serial ports not the usb port ie not /dev/ugen4.2

but rather port = /dev/cuaU0 which I did sequentially till I got one to to work.

I thought I would give you the follow up on this incase you get asked again in the future.

Thank you again for your assistance

Hello Godfrey,

I have managed to get this far and am stuck

Initializing AT capable mobile phone ...
Serial device: opening device /dev/ugen4.2
Gnokii serial_open: tcgetattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device
Couldn't open ATBUS device: Inappropriate ioctl for device

No matter what I try I am unable to proceed beyond this point

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,
