Experimenting PyS60 on my Nokia 6600

Another lazy day, and did not take very long for me realize this was the 5th day of the study holidays. Had enough fun, sleep and hacks. This would add to it. Was exchanging few email conversations with Arky and don’t know from where in the world, the thought about his Nokia N70 struck me. I remember, how difficult it was to get him over phone during the NIT-C Mapping Party, because the phone was not interested in answering calls anymore, rather, run Python scripts!

And should I say more? I’m the proud owner of a six year old Nokia 6600, and I’m not gonna change it. Googled for Python S60 and came up to the PyS60 wiki run by Nokia and the sourceforge.net project page. Figured out the suitable latest PyS60 1.4.5 release for Symbian 2nd edition phones, downloaded two files: 1. PythonForS60, 2. PythonScriptShell, installed both on the phone and whao! I’m running Python on my phone. I was too happy to resist tweeting. Downloaded the documentation and found many useful libraries for messaging, GPS etc. Wrote a simple script for SMS flooding.

import messaging
for i in range(0,10):
messaging.sms_send(“9846492504”, “Poda!”, name=”Nijad”)
import messaging
for i in range(0,10):
	messaging.sms_send("xxxxxxxxxx", "Poda!", name="abc")
Spoke to Nijad over phone, and confirmed that the study holidays are going to be hacking holidays.
