    i’ve nokia 6600 and nokia 3310 which i want to use with gammu to make it my home SMS gateway. Actually I’d prefer 3310 because i can dedicate that old phone for that job but problem is that is not working now properly, whereas it was just working fine for two months, I followed the following guide
