This software uses the Python Serial Port Extension to send Hayes AT commands to a mobile phone. It allows to backup phone book entries and sms messages. It does not provide synchronisation but allow phone book entries modification and deleting messages through a simple curses graphical user interface. It also provides a way to send or write sms messages to memory.
It is released under a free software license, see COPYING for more details.

This software is in development and could damage your phone or data. I couldn't be held responsible if something bad happened, use it at your own risk!
It has currently been tested with a SAMSUNG SGH-D900 model and provides read support for SGH-D520 and phonebook read support for SGH-E250.
For Python version earlier than 2.5 Elementtree

Uncompress the archive with:
#tar xvzf [archive-name] #cd pyhandset-[version-name]
And, as root:
The configuration file should be $HOME/.pyhandset/pyhandset.conf
Here's an example:
# Default Bluetooth device #Handset.device = '/dev/rfcomm0' # Default USB device Handset.device = '/dev/ttyACM0' Handset.BAUDRATE = '115200' Handset.phonebook_file = 'phonebook.xml' Handset.messages_file = 'messages.xml'
Usage: pyhandset.py [options] Options: -h, --help show this help message and exit -d DEVICE, --device=DEVICE Device filename to use -t, --test Enter interactive mode -L, --list-contacts Show contact list -l LOG_FILE, --log-transfer=LOG_FILE Log to file -m, --retrieve-messages Retrieve messages -r, --retrieve-all Retrieve phonebook and messages -p, --retrieve-phonebook Retrieve phonebook entries -g, --gui Launch curses interface Dangerous Options: Caution: use these options at your own risk. -e, --edit Gui edit mode [VERY DANGEROUS] -s SEND, --send-sms=SEND Send/Write a sms message
To retrieve all the contacts from the sim card and phone:
To retrieve all the sms messages:
To view them in the graphical user interface:
To export the saved phone book contacts to a file named contacts.vcf:
#pyhandset.py -x contacts.vcf
If you are interested in getting this software to work with another cell phone you can write a protocol definition for your model, following the one in the phones.py file.
Most commands should be the same, if you are lucky enough your phone might even support the AT+CLAC command which list all available commands.
The answers then have to be processed by the python regular expression module (here is a good place to start). The kodos software can also be really helpful in testing and debugging regular expressions.
A very good introduction to AT commands.
