I would like to speak shortly about differences between Gammu and Gammu+ now. This will be linked from main page. This is my opinion and you don't have to agree with it...

First Gammu - released with GPL2 license is currently lead by Michal. Quite big and supporting many devices. You can have worse support in Windows than earlier and I don't like some things inside, but development goes forward. Michal will give probably also less for Nokia devices than I.

Gammu+ 0.38 is out. I have added configure script, which can enable Bluez AFTER USER ACTION. You have written many times, that source after patching is GPL2 licensed. Please note, that in my opinion it doesn't break GPL2 - if you will have patched source, you can remove Bluez driver (yes, this can be very easy separated) and release source under other license:

 "If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,

What phone could be recommended by Gammu author(s) to make SMS gateway ?


Submitted by marcin on Sat 15-Apr-2006

The best is always the most simple device. So, I think that using Nokia 3310 or 3410 can be very good choice. They have removed some SMS bugs (for example, 3330 has buggy firmware - you have to flash it with 3310 firmware to avoid any problems). Especially 3410 is interesting - has got LiIon battery.

More expensive Nokia phones (with own SMS memory) are more complicated and using them is not always good idea (of course, Gammu can do it).

  • week 18-24 September 2006 was started very good - each day=one release (18 Sep = Gammu stable, 19 Sep = Gammu+ test, 20 Sep = python-gammu, 21 Sep = Wammu)
  • I was looking deeply into earlier/currently available software and asking myself about some things. Some conclusions:
    • MyGnokii was created, because I wanted to play with owned phone. I didn't care too deeply about structures. Later I applied patches for not available for me phones (6210).

In March there was gammu.net domain lost and Italy server not bought for next year.

I started to search new place for this www. It's located now on LiveNet.pl provider server. I payed for one month - if there won't be problems with hosting, I will continue it.

The biggest problem was with moving this Wiki. In old place database was using latin1 to UTF8 conversion, in new it doesn't work. I had to convert database to real UTF8:

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


Submitted by marcin on Tue 19-Nov-2002

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

Nokia

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.

Time for new "gold ideas".

I notified, that many people stopped to believe into my work. I started analyzing last months and years. During weekend I returned into my roots too.

I though about many things.

For example, do you think, that Apple could make today own "different" computers in garage or IBM could release own opened PC ? Have you seen Apple advertisement "1984" or Steve Ballmer advertising Windows 1.x ?

Privacy in cellular devices


Submitted by marcin on Tue 05-Jun-2007

This article will contains various comments about privacy connected with cellular devices (in GSM networks)...

First of all, I must say, that you don't have something like that. Each time, when phone exchange data with operator stations, he know phone and SIM card details. If you have bought SIM card with concract, he know you personal info too. Of course this is not 100% reliable (phone can be not used by owner), but... This location data should be secret and the most often are. But now always...
