       bitpim - utility to communicate with many CDMA phones


       bitpim  [ -c file  |  -d dir ]  [ -f model ]  [ -p device ]  [ bitfling ] [ debug ] [ cli-
       command ]


       This manual page documents briefly the bitpim command.

       BitPim allows you to view and manipulate data on many phones from LG, Samsung, Sanyo,  and
       other  manufacturers that use Qualcomm CDMA chips.  Depending on your phone model, you may
       be able to  access  the  phone  book,  the  calendar,  wallpapers,  ring  tones,  and  the


       A summary of options is included below.

       -c file
              Read configuration from file.

       -d dir Read configuration from dir/.bitpim.

       -f model
              Assume  a  phone  type  of model rather than what the configuration file specifies.
              Particularly useful in CLI mode.

       -p device
              Communicate with the phone via the device ("port") device.

              Run as bitfling(1).

       debug  Print debugging information to standard output and standard error.

              Interact with the phone's filesystem via a  command-line  interface.   The  command
              must be a single (quoted) argument, and can take any of the following forms:
              cli    Bring up an interactive shell, allowing all of the below commands as well as
                     a few others (cd dir, cdu, exit, and pwd or equivalently cwd).
              cp src [...] destdir
                     Copy files to, from, or within the phone.
              ll dir [...]
                     Print a detailed listing of the specified phone directory or directories.
              ls dir [...]
                     Print a brief listing of the specified phone directory or directories.
              mkdir dir [...]
                     Create a directory on the phone.
              rm file [...]
                     Remove one or more files from the phone.
              rmdir dir [...]
                     Remove one or more directories, which must already be empty, from the phone.

              Please note that none of these commands accepts wildcards.   To  indicate  that  an
              argument  denotes  a file or directory on the phone, you can prefix it with phone:;
              this is mainly relevant for cp, which performs phone-to-PC copies unless  otherwise
