    i don't know if Virtual COM driver is installed for my phone or in short, i don't have a single clue of what you are talking about. would you be willing to assist the foolish one??

    Nowadays phones are such complex, that they need a connection with a higher bandwidth to connect to the PC. This is the part where the USB comes in.
    When vendors provide tools, they're (mostly) implementing binary, propriatary protocols, which spare out any known specification. This makes handling such phones not easier

    At least, most of them do support a Dial-Up modem emulation, which makes it easy for a existing 3rd part software to control the phone and connect your PC to the internet or a RAS-Server.
    Because the 3rd party software mentioned uses COM ports to connect through only (which is meant to be a pure hardware), the Dial-Up modem emulation provides a virtual (software based) COM port.
    Upfront to the 3rd patry software it behaves like a real COM port, on the other end it does whatever it needs to.
    Therefore, you always have to install a separate piece of software.

    In this case, go to your Control Panel and open up the Phone and modem Options and click on the Modems tab. There you'll find all installed "modems" listed.
    If there is none listed with the brand of your phone, click on Add... and check the "Don't detect my modem..." checkbox.
    Then click Next > and look if you'll find your phones vendor in the Manufacturers list on the left.
    If it's there, click it, select a Modem/Phone from the list on the right and click Finish. Then use the assigned port number and try to connect with HyperTerminal as the PhoCo documentation says in chapter 10.

    If your vendor is not listed there, call / email you vendor to provide you such driver. Don't try to use something that "sounds like"

    Be aware: Not every vendor has such drivers.
    If you're in the USA, and you're using a CDMA phone, the modem isn't in the phone, it's in the net (even if you don't understand this - belive me ).
    So, this wont work with PhoCo anyway.
    If you have a Symbian OS phone, PhoCo might connect but not a access all of the features built in.

    Don't know... try it and tell me

    BTW folks: If your phone is not on my list, it means "no one has tested it yet".
    That basically is the main motivation to have a compatibility list on a website

    zButton and callerid?

    I installed the new version and got everything working, except a couple of things. One thing in the new version there is always the word zButton over the refresh button. I downloaded and am using the Brushed Metal skin. Is there a way to get rid of the word zButton? Also my caller id doesn't work. When someone calls me, it always says Unknown Caller, even though my phone recognizes the name. Any suggestions?

    If you're using the new Brushed metal skin, the zButton shouldn't be named zButton. Look into the PhoneCtl.Brushmetal.xml for the button with id="PBRefresh". Set it's <Caption> to "NO_CAPTION".

    As for the caller id, send me you logfile.

    Cdma

    Thank you for the quick reply. From the reading, it seems that the problem is getting your software to comunicate with the CDMA software of the phone. I have the usb cable and software that I bought for my phone from Verizon and it seems to be able to use the phone as a modem. That interface is not friendly to a carputer (it requires a lot of input to gain connection, and if the connection is lost or disconnected you have to re-enter the information) Would that be of any help to you and your efforts?

    I'm afraid not. As I mentioned already, CDMA phones mostly use proprietary protocols, which are barely documented.
    Beside, the Verizon modem isn't in the phone, it's in the net. My trick is, to use the phone modem and control it via AT-Commands. AT-Commands can be obused as a kind of a remote control for the phone.
    If your modem is in the net, the phone is only a gateway and controlling the net isn't possible... (would make some hackers happy )

    This is fact for almost all of the CDMA phones... sorry for that but it's not my fault
