Intro

This page describes what I found out about the Nokia 3410 mobile phone while trying to figure out how to improve support for this mobile phone under Linux using gnokii. (I am talking about connecting the phone through a data cable to a PC running Linux). As far as I know, there are no downloadable datasheets about the messages that this phone exchanges over the data cable.

Support in gnokii

From version 0.5.0 onwards, the Nokia 3410 is recognised by the nk6100 driver in gnokii.
Although a lot of commands are compatible with the nk6100, some are not. Here is a list (not complete):

0x02 0x0033 Get SMS center

Command 0x02 0x0032 is normally supported, however the response 0x02 0x0033 is different. Before the actual data arrives, another (yet unknown) message is sent by the phone.

Example:
Message sent: 0x02 / 0x0006
00 01 00 33 64 01                               |    3d
[Received Ack of type 02, seq:  6]
[Sending Ack of type 02, seq: 0]
Message received: 0x02 / 0x0004
01 0f 00 c9                                     |    
Received message type 02

01 0f 00 c9                                     |

0x05 0x0030 Set operator logo

See Get operator logo

0x05 0x0034 Get operator logo

There are two extra bytes just before the OTA bitmap data.

Example:

0x11 0x006d Get alarm status

This command does not seem to be supported. The phone does not respond to this command.

0x13 0x0067 Get calendar note

Command 0x13 0x0066 is normally supported, however the response 0x13 0x0067 is different. Example:
Message sent: 0x13 / 0x0005

The bytes 0x08 0x2c form the bogus year 2092 in the date field, while the bytes 0x7 0xd2 form the correct year 2002 in the alarm field.
