Develop an application for connecting Mobile Phone to Mint via data cable

  10 years ago

Like PC suite or Kies, Mint should also have some application for connecting and synchronising mobile phone to computer (Not talking about mass storage, its about accessing broadband, syncronising messages, notes, contacts etc.)

Although internet can also be accessed via bluetooth but linux lacks data cable support. I have searched a lot on google but of no use. Some tutorials are there regarding configuration files but very difficult to grasp for a new user. There should be an easy and reliable graphical way also.

If there is already a software for these purposes or some useful website link or any tutorial, please mention in comments.

This is beyond the scope of the Mint developers

Therefore I am marking it "Rejected"

Alexio I have tried Wammu but my phone (Samsung GT S3310) is not supported. I have also seen their database where supported phones are listed and many phone models are missing. So the main thing is to increase Wammu support for mobile phones. Thanx again Alexio. The application (Wammu) is good but support is Poor.
And what about usb Datacards/Dongles which are used for accessing internet via SIM card? Are they supported on linux?

Wammu is a program to manage data in your cell phone such as contacts, calendar or messages. It is built on Gammu library, which provides abstraction layer to work with different cell phones from different vendors (including Nokia, Sony-Ericsson, Motorola, Samsung, Siemens, Huawei and others).

Phone manufacturers are never concerned about customers who use Linux, that's why i have posted here. And this is not limited to only one brand, this is a huge issue. Sorry to say remoulder, you cant understand problem as either you do not use there functions or you have other options.

The applications you mention are developed by the phone manufacturers and are proprietary. For issues connecting your phone you should ask a question in the forums.
