Hi,
i own a W700i. Been using MyPhoneExplorer for windows for years, but cant find any alternative to it in ubuntu.

I installed wammu but it fails to send/recieve sms or read contact data or anyother stuff.

Currently, I am using MyPhoneExplorer under wine but its highly restricted in its operation..
can anyone suggest me something better?

An excellent guide for syncing Wammu and SE phones: http://www.howtoforge.com/fedora8-bluetooth-wammu-mobile-phone

You can also try gnome photn manager: http://soft.softoogle.com/ap/gnome-phone-manager-download-3127.shtml

Hope it helps... :)

Thanks for the guides.

However, they all describe connecting mobile over bluetooth. I am using the USB cable to connect my mobile.
I think even you own a w700i? can u please try with a USB cable?

btw:what step, and money would i require to enable bluetooth for PC?

Skip the BT pairing part and come over straight to the place where Wammu config is given in the guide, instead of BT select Data Cable. Rest of the steps remain same :)

If you don't haf a BT dongle then you can get on for about Rs.250. To use BT blindly follow the guide stated above :)

I had already paired my SE T610 with Ubuntu but Wammu always give me this error "Neither GNOME Bluetooth (btctl) nor PyBluez found, not possible to scan for bluetooth devices" in the Phone Wizard during Phone Search. I searceh for these packages in Synaptic and found Gnome Bluetooth is already installed, but couldnt find PyBluez there.
Whats the problem?
I can send files ,from and to, both devices.

I downloaded gnome-phone-manager and was ablr to send SMS, though.

I installed the following packages(Dont ask me what they do:D)
bwidget (1.7.0-1)
gnome-vfs-obexftp (0.4-1)
obexftp (0.19-7ubuntu1)
obextool (0.33-0ubuntu1)
openobex-apps (1.3-3ubuntu1)
tablelist (4.6-0ubuntu1)
And I open Nautilus enter
Code:
obex://[00:0e:07:2e:c0:38]
to access my T610:D Now i can simply copy/paste to or from my cell and Ubuntu!!!! Easy.
I found my cel address [00:0e:07:2e:c0:38] through
Code:
hcitool scan
