For debugging purpose. --forceSMread, -s Forces sendsms to read phonebook from SIM card, and to parse the generated file in order to update the numbers' list (useful only if required to pickup number from the phone's memory). See NOTE. --forceMEread, -m Forces sendsms to read phonebook from phone memory, and to parse the generated file in order to update the numbers' list (useful only if required to pickup number from the phone's memory). See NOTE. --skipgnokiicheck, -K Skip the test of the presence of binary 'gnokii'. (It must be somewhere in your $PATH). It allows you to try this script program, even if you don't have 'gnokii' already. ;) --smsset, --setsms Allows you to preset a SMS message from STDIN. (pipe or input redirection).

gnokiid - create a virtual modem for old Nokia mobile phones SYNOPSIS
gnokiid gnokiid [--help|--version|--debug] DESCRIPTION
gnokiid is a tool from the gnokii tool suite used to create a virtual modem device with a Nokia portable telephone. The virtual modem device is usually accessed via a symbolic link called /dev/gnokii (created automatically by mgnokiidev(8)). Please note that you don't need a virtual modem when you have real modem accepting AT Hayes commands (most of the modern phones). gnokiid was written for the phones that supported data transfer but didn't expose AT layer (namely Nokia 6110, 6130, 6150, 5110, 5130). After gnokiid has created the virtual modem, it can be accessed like any other Hayes-compatible modem by such programs as the terminal pro- gram minicom(1) or the PPP daemon pppd(8) to make standard data connections to remote computers. The full range of portable telephone functions (SMS messaging, phone book, operator logos, etc.) are accessed using the command-line pro- gram gnokii(1) or the graphical interface program xgnokii(1x). gnokii is a Linux/Unix tool suite and (eventually) modem/fax driver for Nokia mobile phones, released under the GPL. gnokii supports most phones from the 3810/8110 and 5110/6110 series, details including bugs specific to each series appear in the files Docs/README-3810 and Docs/README-6110 respectively. OPTIONS
If called without any options, gnokiid will set up a virtual modem device using the settings in gnokii(1) config file (if it exists). Oth- erwise, --help print out a short usage message --version print out version, copyright, phone, and serial device info --debug uses STDIN/STDOUT for a virtual modem DIAGNOSTICS
Various error messages are printed to STDERR. BUGS
