After few days in bed I have a lot of power :-D :

  1. I started making real & actual manual for command line options.It will be put in the future instead of gammu.txt into source tarball.

    From technical details: page is created from many smaller Wiki subpages. The problem is, that normally (when you try to go inside it with internal Wiki link), page doesn't contains latest versions of subpages. You have to use full external link with ''action=purge'' on end like above.


'''Firmware''' is the phone's ''operating system'', the program which allows the phone to work.

A mobile phone is really just a computer which can handle voice communications between two (or more) users, and - just like any other computer - it needs programs to work. This is called the ''firmware''.

I started to be more modern and started using Wiki for various tasks. Some words about my current work and plans (something like Weekly Newsletter for ReactOS):

  1. Wiki on Gammu.net is now splitted into NameSpaces:
    • Gammu for Gammu family projects
    • GPlus for Gammu+ family projects

There will be done a lot of work for advertising Gammu and Gammu+ family and there are plans of making gammu.net portal with various services. To achieve it's required to work on
  • ending phone database
    • data should be completed for all models
    • users should be able to report theirs comments to phones
    • users should be able to report bugs
    • Gammu should be able to take firmware versions from it (maybe using XML)

Why you should and why shouldn't buy Nokia phones (part 2) (2005)

I have prepared page "Why you should and why shouldn't buy Nokia phones" in 2002 year. I decided to make continuation now in 2005.

I wanted to show some weak Nokia things for Series 40 and 60 phones, because they're used the most for ordinary people.

First Series 40. We will look into menus now (based mainly on 6230i):

  • Messages - Nokia phones have MMS and SMS here.
    • Latest models (like 6230i) have even shared folders for both and this is good.

Why you should and why shouldn't buy Nokia phones (2002)

I write/update this page 21.11.2002. I decided to make this list and publish as separate subpage, because more and more people write me, that current Nokia products don't have this or other feature. I will try to show, which features are important for users and which can make problems. If you have in plans buying phone from this company, first just read this list...and don't say later, that I didn't warn...

First start from advantages of Nokia phones (why you should buy Nokia products):

    What phone could be generally recommended by Gammu author(s) ?

    It's difficult to say. Everyone needs something different according to own needs.


    If you want to be visible, buy 7650 or 9210. Very visible, very expensive, and parts for it are very expensive. Many small stability problems, no GPRS (in 9210). Weak battery in 7650.

    If you need phone for calls, no WAP, but requires extended pbk, buy 6210 or 6250 (second is for any weather and hard environment). Will be able to "repair" (flash) it - it repairs each phone in majority problems. These phones are very slow and has some other small problems.
