One typical migration people do when changing phones is migration of contacts and calendar items. In case of mine, this is about migrating data from an S40 phone to Google apps, where every smartphone can sync from.

Migrating calendar items is easy: gammu can save the data from the phone to a .ics file and Google Calendar can just import that. The situation is a bit harder for the phonebook, as Google Contacts would take a .csv, while gammu as its own ini-like format for storing this data.

I already found a script doing something similar, but the result was unusable. ;) Given that the whole task is not that complex, I decided to write my own converter, available here.
