GAMMU (formerly MyGnokii2)

GAMMU (GNU All Mobile Management Utilities) (formerly known as MyGnokii2) is manager for various cellular phones and modems. It supports Nokia 3210, 33xx, 3410, 3510, 51xx, 5210, 5510, 61xx, 62xx, 63xx, 6510, 7110, 82xx, 8310, 9110, and 9210, and AT devices (such as Siemens, Alcatel, WaveCom, IPAQ, Sagem and other). For an up-to-date list of supported mobile phones see Gammu phone database. GAMMU has a command line version with many functions for ringtones, phonebook, SMS, logos, WAP, date/time, alarm, calls, etc. It can also make full backups and restore them. It works on various Unix systems (like Linux) and Win32.


KitchenSync [archived link] is a KDE framework for the syncing between KDE applications and a PDA or mobile phone. Here is a atPhone a KitchenSync Plugin to sync Siemens mobile cell phones, too. For general information see the HOWTO: Syncing your PocketPC using KitchenSync.


LN-S25 [archived link] makes it possible to put logos and ringtones in BMP format on to a Siemens S25 mobile phone. Additionally you may modify the addressbook.


Handy is a small console program to convert the output of Lotus Notes client version 5.x into a vCal Version 2.0 file and/or sends the appointments to a cellphone of type SIEMENS S45 and maybe S35 also.


SL45c is a Linux Datasuite for the Siemens *45 series phones.


Blues55 allows you to use a Siemens S55 , Motorola V500 (and maybe other phones) as remote control for a PC. Once a Bluetooth connection has been established, the phone can control the mouse or send key-strokes.

Exchange Phonebook T39 with ME45

A perl tool to move the phonebook from the Ericsson T39 to the Siemens ME45.

SMS Archiver

SMS Archiver is a PHP script to convert from the smi/smo format used on Siemens phones to archive SMS messages. It works for the Siemens S55 and may well work on others. The format used is similar to the SMS specification in that the text is encoded in the PDU format and the phone numbers and date conform.


SieFS is a virtual filesystem for accessing Siemens mobile phone memory (flexmem or MultiMediaCard) from Linux. Now you can mount your phone (by datacable or IrDA) and work with it like with any other removable storage. It was tested on these cellphones: * S45, ME45, SL45 * S55, SL55, M55, MC60 * CX65, M65, C65, S65 But it should also work on C55/M50/MT50 with enabled serial interface. There should not be any problems with other new Siemens phones. SieFS consists of filesystem module (siefs), command-line utility (slink) and voice memo converter (vmo2wav). SieFS is based on FUSE, Filesystem in USErspace, an excellent tool for creating custom filesystems with minimal effort.

Linux on SX1

The goal of Linux on Siemens SX1 is developing completly free linux environment for Siemens SX1 mobile phone and for any smartphone in the future. Our targets are small size and fast speed.
