I have asked Nokia and they are not willing to release the documentation for
the CSD services.  Their reasons include supportability (the interfaces may
change) and that they are trying to push oFono as the right long term
solution (although it isn't here yet).

However, many of the CSD services can be discovered using various DBus
tools.  I have made a start on that and have put the information I have
worked out so far in the Wiki of one of my garage projects.  You can see
this at:


You will also find in there some hints on how to find out about the
interfaces and a script I have been playing with to test various of the
interfaces.  Be aware that neither I nor Nokia take anyresponsibility for
any strange effects you have on your device or your SIM using this!

I may move it to the maemo.org Wiki at some point, but I was waiting until I
had got more info and done more testing (including understanding if some
things had bad effects!).  If anyone wants to contribute, let me know and I
can add you to the project.

If you want to see how these can be used, you can look at the code in the
garage project:
