NAME
gnokii - modem/fax driver for the mobile phones
SYNOPSIS
gnokii [CONFIG OPTIONS] [OPTIONS]
DESCRIPTION
gnokii is a multiple systems tool suite and (eventually) modem/fax driver for the mobile phones. gnokii at the beginning was designed to support the proprietary protocols of Nokia phones and at the moment it also supports phones and GSM modems that understand AT commands, both from Nokia and from other vendors, and SIM cards in PC/SC compatible Smart Card readers. Limited support for the older and slow Nokia MBUS protocol is also available. You can assume that your phone is supported, however there are rare cases that you will get very limited functionality with gnokii. If you have a fairly modern phone you should use the following model setting in your config file: - model = series40, if you have Nokia non-Symbian phone - model = gnapplet, if you have Nokia Symbian Series60 prior to 3rd Edition phone - model = AT, for all other - if you have some older Nokia phone you may try using its brand name, eg. for Nokia 6210 use model = 6210. See also our <http://wiki.gnokii.org/index.php/Config> for configurations known to work. Symbian series60 3rd edition (most Nokia n and e series) are not supported by gnapplet driver due to changes in Symbian API. For now you can get some functionality using AT driver. Please note that currently there are Nokia models with almost the same names as the old ones, like 6110c vs 6110 or 3110c vs 3110. They are completly incompatible. DO NOT use model = 6110 or model = 3110 setting for them.
CONFIG OPTIONS
--config filename reads configuration from filename instead of trying default locations. Normally gnokii looks for config file in $XDG_CON- FIG_HOME/gnokii/config (which is usually $HOME/.config/gnokii/config), $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/gnokii/config (which is usually /etc/xdg/gnokii/config), $HOME/.gnokiirc (legacy) and /etc/gnokiirc (legacy). --phone name usees parameters from the given phone section of your config file. A phone section named 'foo' starts with [phone_foo] and is used as --phone foo
OPTIONS
The options that are recognized by gnokii can be divided into several different groups. GENERAL --help displays usage information. --version displays version and copyright information. --monitor [delay|once] continually updates phone status to stderr. Optional delay parameter sets the refresh interval to delay seconds. Default is 1. once means the output will be printed only once. --shell runs interactive session that will allow to run sequent gnokii commands without a need to reconnect for the sequent commands. DIALING --getspeeddial location reads speed dial from the specified location. --setspeeddial number memory_type location specify speed dial. location number 1 is usually reserved for voice mailbox number and it is unavailable as speed dial. --dialvoice number initiate voice call. On success print the callid identifier to be used with the --hangup command. The --monitor command can be used to show the callid. --senddtmf string send DTMF sequence. --answercall callid answer an incoming call. callid is a small integer number used to identify one of the incoming calls. The --monitor command can be used to show the callid. --hangup callid hangup an incoming call or an already established call. callid is a small integer number used to identify one of the incoming calls. If you initiated the call with --dialvoice this is the number printed by that command. The --monitor command can be used to show the callid. --divert {--op|-o} {register|enable|query|disable|erasure} {--type|-t} {all|busy|noans|outofreach|notavail} {--call|-c} {all|voice|fax|data} [{--timeout|-m} time_in_seconds] [{--number|-n} number] Manage call diverting/forwarding. --op specifies one of the operations: register enable query disable erasure --type specifies one of the event types: busy noans outofreach notavail unconditional all --call specifies one of the call types: voice fax data all --timeout is the number of seconds an incoming call will ring before being forwarded to the registered number (use with --type noans) --number is the phone number to which calls are to be forwarded PHONE SETTINGS --getdisplaystatus shows what icons are displayed. --displayoutput show texts displayed in phone's screen. --getprofile [number] show settings for selected(all) profile(s). --setprofile sets settings for selected(all) profile(s). --getactiveprofile reads the active profile. --setactiveprofile profile_no sets active profile to the profile number profile_no. --netmonitor {reset|off|field|devel|next|nr} setting/querying netmonitor mode. --reset [soft|hard] resets the phone. TODO --gettodo start_number [end_number|end] [-v|--vCal] get the notes with numbers from start_number to end_number from ToDo list. end is a keyword that denotes 'everything till the end'. -v - output in vCalendar 1.0 format --writetodo vCalendarfile start_number [end_number|end] write the notes with numbers from start_number to end_number from vCal file vcalfile to ToDo list. More than one note a time can be saved. end is a keyword that denotes 'everything till the end'. number - location of the note in the vCalendar file --deletealltodos delete all notes from the ToDo list. CALENDAR --getcalendarnote start_number [end_number|end] [-v|--vCal] get the notes with numbers from start_number to end_number from calendar. end is a keyword that denotes 'everything till the end'. -v - output in vCalendar 1.0 format --writecalendarnote vcalfile start_number [end_number|end] write the notes with numbers from start_number to end_number from vCal file vcalfile to a phone calendar. More than one note a time can be saved. end is a keyword that denotes 'everything till the end'. number - location of the note in the vCalendar file --deletecalendarnote start_number [end_number|end] delete the notes with numbers from start_number to end_number from calendar. end is a keyword that denotes 'everything till the end'. SMS --getsms memory_type start [end] [-f|--file file] [-F|--force-file file] [-a|--append-file file] [-d|--delete] gets SMS messages from specified memory type starting at entry start and ending at end. For the memory types you usually use SM for the SIM card and ME for the phone memory (or MT for mixed phone and SIM memory, which preferred type for modern Motorolas). The exception are the phones supported by nk7110 (Nokia 7110/6210/6250) and nk6510 (Nokia 6310/6510/8310) drivers. For these you should use IN for the Inbox, OU for the Outbox, AR for the Archive, TE for the Templates and F1, F2, ... for your own folders. Use the --showsmsfolderstatus command to get a list of memory types available in your phone. end can be a number or the string 'end'. If end is not specified only one location - start is read. Messages are printed to stdout. Additionally, if --file file is used, mes- sages are saved in file in mbox format. If file already exists, user is prompted whether to overwrite it. If --force-file file is used gnokii overwrites the file without asking. If --append-file file is used messages are appended to the file. If --delete switch is used, the message is deleted after reading. --deletesms memory_type start [end] deletes SMS messages from specified memory type starting at entry start and ending at end. If end is not specified only one loca- tion - start is deleted. --sendsms destination [--smsc message_center_number | --smscno message_center_index] [-r|--report] [-8|--8bit] [-C|--class n] [-v|--valid- ity n] [-i|--imelody] [-a|--animation file;file;file;file] [-o|--concat this;total;serial] [-w|--wappush url] sends an SMS message to destination via message_center_number or SMSC number taken from phone memory from address message_cen- ter_index. If this argument is omitted SMSC number is taken from phone memory from location 1. Message text is taken from STDIN. Meaning of other optional parameters: -r | --report - request for delivery report -8 | --8bit - set 8bit coding -C | --class n - Class Message n, where n can be 0..3 -v | --validity n - validity in minutes -i | --imelody - send iMelody within SMS -a | --animation file;file;file;file - send animation message -o | --concat this;total;serial - send this part of all total parts identified by serial -w | --wappush url - send wappush to the given url Sample usage: echo "This is a test message" | gnokii --sendsms +48501123456 -r --savesms [--sender from] [--smsc message_center_number | --smscno message_center_index] [--folder folder_id] [--location number] [--sent | --read] [--deliver] [--datetime YYMMDDHHMMSS] saves SMS messages to phone. Messages are read from STDIN. You can specify the following optional arguments: --sender - set the sender number (only --deliver) --smsc message_center_number - set the SMSC number (only --deliver) --smscno message_center_index - SMSC number taken from phone memory from address message_center_index (only --deliver) --folder folder_id - folder ID where to save the SMS to (only valid for newer phones, i.e. 6210/6510 series). For legal values see --getsms. --location number - save the message to location number --sent | --read - mark the message saved/read depending on --deliver --deliver - set the message type to SMS_Deliver --datetime YYMMDDHHMMSS - sets datetime of delivery, i.e. 031123185713 would set message delivery time to 23rd November 2003, 6:57:13 PM --getsmsc [start_number [end_number]] [-r|--raw] show the SMSC parameters from specified location(s) or for all locations. --setsmsc set SMSC parameters read from STDIN. See --raw output of --getsmsc for syntax. --createsmsfolder name create SMS folder with name name. --deletesmsfolder number delete folder # number of 'My Folders'. --showsmsfolderstatus list SMS folder names with memory types and total number of messages available. --smsreader keeps reading incoming SMS and saves them into the mailbox. MMS --getmms memory_type start [end] [{--pdu|--raw} file] [-o|--overwrite] gets MMS messages from specified memory type starting at entry start and ending at end. Default output format is human readable, alternative output formats are --pdu which is the binary format of MMS as received by the phone from the network and --raw which saves the data as read from the phone. When the -o or --overwrite option is used, existing files are overwritten without asking. LOGOS --sendlogo {caller|op|picture} destination logofile [network_code] send the logofile to destination as operator or CLI logo. --setlogo op [logofile [network_code]] --setlogo startup [logofile] --setlogo caller [logofile [caller_group_number [group_name]]] set or clear operator, startup or caller logo. --setlogo {dealer|text} [text] set or clear welcome note. --getlogo op [logofile [network_code]] --getlogo startup [logofile [network_code]] --getlogo caller [caller_group_number [logofile [network_code]]] get operator, startup or caller logo. --getlogo {dealer|text} get welcome note. --viewlogo logofile print the logofile as ASCII art. Formats that are automatically detected are: NOL, NGG, NSM, NLM, BMP, I61, GGP, XPM. The OTA for- mat can be used only if the filename ends with the .otb extension. Format of network_code parameter is 3 digits MCC, a space, 2 digits MNC surrounded by single or double quotes, eg. "123 45". RINGTONES --sendringtone destination rtttlfile send the rtttlfile to destination as ringtone. --setringtone rtttlfile set the rtttlfile as ringtone (on 6110). PHONEBOOK --getphonebook memory_type start_number [end_number|end] [[-r|--raw]|[-v|--vcard]|[-l|--ldif]] reads specified memory location from phone. If end_number is not specified only one location - start is read. If instead of end_number the text end is specified then gnokii will read from start_number until it encounters a non-existant location. Valid memory types are: ME, SM, FD, ON, EN, DC, RC, MC, LD: ME Internal memory of the mobile equipment SM SIM card memory FD Fixed dial numbers ON Own numbers EN Emergency numbers DC Dialled numbers RC Received calls MC Missed calls LD Last dialed numbers Normally you get verbose output. You can use -v or --vcard switch to get output in vCard format or -l or --ldif switch to get output in ldif format or -r or --raw switch to get the raw output which is explained below. You can use it then with --writephonebook. --writephonebook [-o|--overwrite] [-f|--find-free] [-m|--memory-type|--memory memory_type] [-n|--memory-location|--location number] [[-v|--vcard]|[-l|--ldif]] reads data from stdin and writes to phonebook. Uses the same format as provided by the output of the getphonebook command. Default is raw format (see below for details) and alternate formats are vCard and ldif. With --memory-type memory_type and --memory-location number you can set a memory type and a location if the input data doesn't specify them. When the -o or --overwrite option is used, existing entries at a given location are overwritten. When the -f or --find-free option is given, gnokii tries to find a free location. In this case, you can omit the location field in the input data. The raw phonebook format is very simple. Each line represents one entry. Fields are separated by semicolons. Semicolons aren't allowed inside a field. The fields have to be in this order (the subentries are optional, ie. you can repeat all subentry field multiple times, but they have to be alltogether in the given order): name number memory_type entry_location caller_group_number subentry_type subentry_number_type subentry_id subentry_text Possible values of caller_group_number and the corresponding caller groups are (these are defaults, you are able to change these manually in your phone): 0 Family 1 VIP 2 Friends 3 Colleagues 4 Other 5 No group Possible subentry types are described in the gnokii/common.h file: 7 subentry is the name 8 subentry is the email address 9 subentry is the postal address (snail mail) 10 subentry is the note (text field) 11 subentry is the number 12 subentry is the ringtone 19 subentry is the date 26 subentry is the pointer 27 subentry is the logo 28 subentry is the logo switch 30 subentry is the group 44 subentry is the URL Possible subentry number types are described in the gnokii/common.h file: 2 number is the home phone number 3 number is the mobile phone number 4 number is the fax number 6 number is the work phone number 10 number is the general number For the subentry types that don't care about number type (as text files) this should be set to 0. --deletephonebook memory_type start_number [end_number|end] delete entries with start_number to end_number from the phone book in memory_type. end is a keyword that denotes 'everything till the end'. WAP --getwapbookmark number reads the specified WAP bookmark from phone --writewapbookmark name URL write WAP bookmark to phone --deletewapbookmark number delete WAP bookmark from phone --getwapsetting number [-r|--raw] read WAP setting from phone --writewapsetting reads data from stdin and writes it to phone. Hint: see syntax from --getwapsetting -r option --activatewapsetting number activate WAP setting number DATE, TIME AND ALARM --setdatetime [YYYY [MM [DD [HH [MM]]]]] set the date and the time of the phone. --getdatetime shows current date and time in the phone. --setalarm HH MM set the alarm of the phone. --getalarm shows current alarm. SECURITY --identify get IMEI, manufacturer, model, product name and revision. --entersecuritycode {PIN|PIN2|PUK|PUK2|SEC} asks for the code and sends it to the phone. Code is read from terminal or from stdin. --getsecuritycode shows the currently set security code. --getsecuritycodestatus show if a security code is needed. --getlocksinfo show information about the (sim)locks of the phone: the lock data, whether a lock is open or closed, whether it is a user or factory lock and the number of unlock attempts. FILE Note that some phones (like Nokia 6610i) support only id based operations (gnokii options with "byid" suffix). Use gnokiifs for the trans- parent support. --getfilelist remote_path lists files from the given directory. Use A:\* or B:\* to get the root directory from either phone memory or card memory. --getfiledetailsbyid [id] lists file details or directory contents from the entry identified by id. If no identifier is given, list the root directory con- tents. --getfileid remote_filename gets id of the file. --getfile remote_filename [local_filename] gets file identified by name and path from the phone and stores it at the local computer. --getfilebyid id [local_filename] gets file identified by id from the phone and stores it at the local computer. --getallfiles remote_path gets all files from the remote path. --putfile local_filename remote_filename stores the file in the phone memory or on the memory card. --deletefile remote_filename removes the file from the phone. --deletefilebyid id removes the file from the phone. MISC --keysequence emulates pressing keys on phone keyboard. Input is read from stdin. Supported keys (any other char is ignored): M menu N names P power G green phone R red phone U up D down + increase volume - decrease volume 0123456789#* as is Example: to increase volume echo "+" | gnokii --keysequence Note: this command isn't supported by all phones/drivers. --enterchar emulates typing a character on phone keyboard. By emulating multiple pressions of keys, it can input all characters supported by the phone in use, but to input an SMS predictive text should be disabled. Input is read from stdin, with newline interpreted as the "Menu" key and escape interpreted as the "Names" key. Note: this command isn't supported by all phones/drivers. --listnetworks prints a list of cellular network operators with their 3-digits MCC (Mobile country code) and 2-digits MNC (Mobile Network Code). Note: this command doesn't need a valid config or a phone to work. --getnetworkinfo prints information about the network currently in use.
DIAGNOSTICS
