    You should try the Gammu terminal program:
    Gammu:Main Page - Gammu.org Wiki

    It should be available from the Fedora repositories, try installing it with YUM. There is also a frontend/GUI available for it called Wammu, but it is not as feature rich as Gammu. It too is available to install with YUM.

    In my case, my phone was not part of the supported phones, in it's database. I followed the instructions here to add it:
    Gammu:Adding support for new models - Gammu.org Wiki

    This required altering some source files, so I uninstalled the Fedora version and downloaded and compiled from source.

    EDIT: I just check my source file, and it looks as if the 6233 has native support. The 7610 could be added if you know the Nokia "family" of phones that it is part of.

    I really don't know a lot about this program. For more info read through the man pages
    Code:
    man gammu
    Also, try the Wammu GUI for it.
