       SCMxx can copy files to and from a Siemens mobile phone and also delete
       stored files. Files can read from a given file or through stdin and
       stored to a given file or stdout. SMS can also be directly sent or
       received without storing in the mobile phone.  SCMxx was tested with
       several mobile phones manufactured by Siemens (only S25 and later).

       The output of text (phonebook and sms) depends on the character set of
       your current locale. Input is the same. This has the advantage of
       localization but may have the drawback that all other characters must
       be entered by a sequence X where X is a hex character (e.g. 20ac for
       EuroSign). This is a 16bit representative of the unicode value.  The
       newline character can be entered using the common and 'ยด must be masked
       with itself. In bash, this might even result in a needed input like

       --device (-d)       specify another than the compiled in device. This
                           overwrites the SCMXX_TTY environment variable and
                           the compiled-in value. For linux systems, this may
                           be e.g. /dev/ttyS0 for serial connections and
                           /dev/ircomm0 for infrared connections.

       --baud (-b)         specify the device's speed. Valid values are
                           dependent on the system but may be 9600, 19200,
                           38400, 57600 or 115200. The default value is 19200.
                           The S25 and *35i only work at the 19200, all later
                           phones also work at full serial speed. Infrared
                           connections may be an exception to these rules
                           (dependent on the infrared donle).  This overwrites
                           the SCMXX_BAUD environment variable and the
                           compiled-in value.

       --out (-o)          specify a file to use. When getting with "all" then
                           the slotnumber, a dot and the filetype are appended
                           to each file (SMS is an exception).  When sending
                           or deleting, this parameter has no use  but the
                           last parameters that should be valid files.
                           Stdin/Stdout must be explicitly selected with the
                           dash ("-"), the program is comfortable with not
                           outputting anything (except getting unread SMS).
                           There is nothing appended to "-" when getting
                           multiple files.

       --pipe (-p)         specify a pipe to another program. When getting
                           with "all", every file is piped to this programs on
                           its own (except phonebook entries).

       --quiet (-q)        decreases verbosity by 1 (min verbosity: -1)

       --pin               use this pin if one is needed

       --verbose (-v)      increases verbosity by 1 (max verbosity: +1)

       --reset             try to reset the phone, so it gets accessible
                           again. It may happen that the phone does not answer
                           on the serial interface anymore, especially with a
                           previous user-interrupted file transfer. This
                           simply blindly sends some characters.

       --help (-h)         print the help message

       --version           print the version number

       --remove (-r)       removes an entry from the phone. "slot" is either a
                           number or the keyword "all".  When specified with
                           --sms and --get, this will get'n'delete.  When
                           specified with --sms, this can also the a status
                           type. Status types are: "unread", "read", "unsent"
                           and "sent".

       --get (-g)          get an entry and save it to a file. "slot" is
                           either a number or the keyword "all".  When
                           specified with --sms, this can also the a status
                           type. Status types are: "unread", "read", "unsent"
                           and "sent".

       --send (-s)         sends a file to the phone. "slot" is a number. When
                           omitted, it tries to find an empty one (that may or
                           may not take long). When a slot was specified and
                           also multiple files to upload, the specified slot
                           is the starting point to search for empty slots.
                           Overwriting multiple, non-empty slots is not yet
                           supported.  When specified with --sms, this can
                           also the a status type. Status types are: "unread",
                           "read", "unsent" and "sent" but only the latter two
                           work right now (and you should also use --direct or
                           the sms will only get copied).

       --info (-i)         collect information from the phone

       --set-time          synchronize time to phone. The use of tools like
                           ntpdate is recommended before using this.

       --set-smsc          set the SMSC number (requires --number)

       --bitmap (-B)       select bitmap (.bmp) slot number

       --midi (-M)         select midi (.mid) slot number

       --vcal (-C)         select vCalender (.vcs) slot number

       --vcard (-F)        select vCard (.vcf) slot number (not supported by
                           *35i or S25).

       --pbook (-P)        select phonebook, see the output of --info for
                           available phonebooks.

       --sms (-S)          select short message service

       --text (-t)         specify content text of SMS (sending only). Note
                           that the length is limited to 160 GSM characters,
                           minus 1 for every used character that needs 14bit
                           encoding.  The program will deny sending, if the
                           text is too long. Multipart-SMS will be supported
                           by a later version.

       --number (-n)       specify number to send the SMS to (sending only).
                           Note that the number may have a leading '+' for
                           international numbers. It is limited to 20 digits
                           (without the '+' which is certainly enough.

       --direct            sends/gets the sms without storing it in the phone.
                           This is not default because you will certainly be
                           charged for it when sending. With direct getting,
                           SMS that are not of type DELIVER are still stored
                           on the phone (scmxx cannot decode those messages,

       --smsmem            select a sms memory to access. The slot number may
                           vary depending on the selected memory. See the
                           output of --info for the supported memory types.
                           For *35i and S25 this is only "SM", the *45 might
                           also feature "ME" and "MT". The latter is
                           "ME"+"SM".  "MT" is the default value on phones
                           that support it. For all other phones, the default
                           value is "SM".

       --flash             set the Class0 in the data coding scheme field that
                           is normally interpreted as "immediate display". Not
                           all receiving entities support this. Note that a
                           second sms of this type normally overwrites a
                           previous one without asking! The use is not

       --srr               this sets the StatusReportRequest bit in the
                           pdutype field of the sms pdu. It depends on the
                           SMSC if this is honored. With some carriers, this
                           produces additional costs!

       Send an bitmap file to the phone as Bitmap:
              scmxx --send --bitmap=0 myfile.bmp
              scmxx -sB0 myfile.bmp
              cat myfile.bmp | scmxx -sB -

       Get a Bitmap from the phone and save it into a new file:
              scmxx --get --bitmap=0 --out=myfile.bmp
              scmxx -gB0 -o myfile.bmp
              scmxx -gB0 >myfile.bmp
