Cellular handsets are consumer devices; their notion
of "standardization" is ENTIRELY different from the
way most of Pythonia behaves.

So, yes, there are all sorts of resources of Nokia
devices.  Gammu <URL: > is also
likely to interest you, depending on your hardware.
There are still other solutions specific to Motorola,
..., although Python's presence and compatibility 
declines steeply when you leave Nokia and/or Gammu.
