Sony Ericsson GM29 on Linux

Using Sony Ericsson GM29 GPRS modem on Linux to send text messages.

Sony Ericsson GM29

I use this kind of code which I get from usenet but I have modified it for my own purpose:

#! /usr/bin/kermit +
set port /dev/ttyS0
set speed 9600
if fail {                      # Check that port was obtained
     exit 1 \m(port): \v(setlinemsg)

set carrier-watch off
set session-log text
log session output
output AT+CMGF=1\13
input /nomatch 10
output AT+CSDH=1\13
input /nomatch 10
output AT+CSMP=17,167,0,0\13
input /nomatch 10
output AT+CMGS="phone_number"\13
input /nomatch 10
output \&_[1]\26
input /nomatch 10
output +CMGS: 15\13

close session

You can write your message directly to this script if you want. You just have to change this line:

output \&_[1]\26

to look more like this:

output My Message\26

but I use \&_[1] because I want to give message as command line parameter.
Example if I want to send text message to my phone when my Linux server is offline I just have to write script which notice if my server is offline and then
run this script: Offline

and then it sends message “Offline” to my phone. Of course this was just a really basic example =)
