man, thats gonna be rough in vb. with all my years of doing it, I can't even say that it'll be easy.
with AT codes, looks like you need a serial connector to you phone. So you'll need the pin outs for you phone to serial.
On the software side, looks like hyperterminal type application. Seeing how you have to send AT commands to the phone. Check the api calls for terminal commands.
I'm going to add a cell attachment to the pc too, but only voice. Like a handless system. Cause to dial, you going to use the screen, keyboard or remote, right? So how would that benifit over the phone? (unless you doing voice control)
well good luck, hope this offers some help.
that dont seem hard at all.....
if you can find the PC-Link cable for this Nokia mobile then your pin layout problems are solved for one thing. I would be close to 99.99% sure that the interface to your phone would be standard serial at a specific baud rate - to help keep the costing of phone 2 PC link cables cheap.
get hold of a link cable, probe it with a multimeter and you have your pin layouts. Even better, get hold of the Nokia software suite for this phone - run a serial snoop on it and get the required Serial port baud rate/stop/start bits too..
of course if its USB, its outa my league ATM!
I found this site: http://188.8.131.52/smsmaker/
It be useful for research or testing.
Ok to update you all,
A. The phone comes with a Comm. Cable supplied…
B. All I have access to is the handset and the comm. cable.
C. I tried using HyperTerminal on my laptop to connect (make a call). I did not succeed. Here is what I tried:
· AT+CKPD=\63[,10[,10]] To clear anything on the screen.
· AT+CKPD=\2A[,10[,10]] To use the star key.
· AT+CKPD=\31[,10[,10]] To use the 1 key.
· AT+CKPD=\35[,10[,10]] To use the 5 key.
· AT+CKPD=\31[,10[,10]] To use the 1 Key.
· AT+CKPD=\6D[,10[,10]] To Dial.
To end result should have been (clear screen) *151 Dial.
The only thing that did happen was when I turned the phone on I got a “z” on the screen, everything else was gibberish. I did not get any answer from the phone.
will check out later how i did to dial - it was very simple ( tried it some years ago when nokia modding was in and not everyone could do
will post results here asap

ahhh, BMW318iS did u set the baud rate to anything specific????
I would be trying to set hyperterminal to 9600 or 2400 and give it another shot...
Start with something simple, to test your connection.
The phone should act like a modem.
So if you type,
From a HyperTerminal:
OK <answer from phone>
If you do not get OK, There maybe a cable problem.
If the phone has IRcom try using that.
or try these commands.
Nokia Mobile Phones
I do not know VB, but the following sample may help you,
To send an SMS text message to a Nokia phone with Visual Basic:
' Set up the communications port
MSComm1.CommPort = 1 ' Com Port 1
' Set for 9600 baud, no parity, 8 data, and 1 stop bit.
MSComm1.Settings = "9600,N,8,1"
' Tell the control to read entire buffer when Input is used
MSComm1.InputLen = 0
' Open the port
MSComm1.PortOpen = True
' Send an 'AT' command to the phone
MSComm1.Output = "AT" & Chr$(13) & Chr(10)
' The phone will respond with an 'OK'
' Set up the phone for a text message
MSComm1.Output = "AT+CMGF=1" & Chr$(13) & Chr(10)
' The phone will respond with an 'OK'
' Prep for SMS, give destination type and destination address.
' Enter the destination type and destination address to prep for SMS
' e.g. AT+CMGS="+2145551212",129
MSComm1.Output = "AT+CMGS= " & Chr(34) & "+2145551212" & Chr(34) & ",129" & Chr$(13) & Chr(10)
' The phone will return a'>' prompt, and await entry of the SMS message text.
' Now send the text to the phone and terminate with (Ctrl-Z)
MSComm1.Output = "This is a test. WOW! "
' The phone will respond with a conformation containing the 'message reference number' eg. +CMGS:
' Close the port
MSComm1.PortOpen = False
From a terminal, it would look like this:
>This is a test. WOW!
