Gammu

Gammu is the name of the project as well as name of command line utility, which you can use to control your phone. It is written in C and built on top of libGammu

Gammu command line utility provides access to wide range of phone features, however support level differs from phone to phone and you might want to check the Gammu Phone Database for user experiences with various phones. Generally following features are supported:

  • Call listing, initiating and handling
  • SMS retrieval, backup and sending
  • MMS retrieval
  • Phonebook listing, export and import (also from standard formats such as vCard)
  • Calendar and tasks listing, export and import (also from standard formats such as vCalendar or iCalendar)
  • Retrieval of phone and network information
  • Access to phone file system (note that some phones work also as USB storage devices and those are not accessible through Gammu)

This project has originally forked from Gnokii and up to version 0.58 has been named MyGnokii2. Then need for better name arrived and Gammu was chosen as an acronym for Gammu All Mobile Management Utilities, without knowing that Gammu from the “Heretics of Dune” book written by Frank Herbert exists.

Phone book multiple numbers

russellbeattie.com - Motorola RAZR V3 Power User’s Guide

Next is the Address Book. Everyone bitches about how inane it is that your contacts are listed multiple times depending on how many ways you have to contact them. So if you have a contact with a work, mobile and email address, you have three entries. And since only three address book entries are shown by default, it means a LOT of scrolling. Even the guy in the New York Times bitched about this one. This can be changed. Go into your Address Book, and down to Settings. Change the View By option from “Picture” to “List”, and then go down to the View option and choose “Primary Contacts”. Now when you hit Done and go back to your address book, you’ll have 8 entries per page, and only one entry per person. Here’s the pain: You have to go through and choose which of the forms of contacting each person is the “primary” way which is displayed by default. You do this by selecting the person, clicking right or left to choose the contact option you want (say mobile) then going into the menu and choosing “set primary”. It’s the suck, but at the end you actually have a usable address book.
