Phone Manager is a program created to allow you to control aspects of your mobile phone from your GNOME 2 desktop. It is free software, licensed under the GPL.
The software is getting more mature. Current features include:
* Runs in the background; indicates status on the panel notification area.
* Display on-screen alert when text message (SMS) arrives
* Text message (SMS) sending facility

The software was originally developed by Edd Dumbill, and is currently maintained by Bastien Nocera.
Phone Manager supports any mobile phone that can connect to your computer as a serial port: via Bluetooth, IrDA or a serial cable.
