It wll now be installed under “Menu>Accessories”
When you first start Wammu, it will prompt you to configure your phone. With the wizard, you can configure your phone in few easy steps.

It detected and connected to our phone successfully in our test.
After configuring your phone, you can connect it from “Phone>Connect”.
