    Help: VB - Nokia 6090

    Hi all,
    I am working on a project and can use all the help I can get.

    I would like to build a Carputer that does the following:
    · Connects to a cell phone (so I can use the screen to dial and receive calls.
    · Plays MP3.
    · Has reverse cam (option to be added later on).

    I would like to use VB6 to program it.
    I have not touch VB in a long time (at least 4 years, so I’m a bit rusty)

    Does anybody know how to control / tap in to a Nokia 6090???

    I have attached a PDF file of the AT_commands

    I have no clue in this area, so anyone who can help, thank you.

    I guess all I really need it to be able to see (read from the phone) the number of the caller.
    Be able to dial (clear screen before would help)….

    Hi,
    the cellphone part is very interesting

    you can dial via the at commands also send SMS messages etc. its not very hard .

    little question: once you have finished would you pubsih your phone sources that other coders could integrate them in their softs ? Would be very cool

    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!
    Project - GAME OVER :(

    The cable is no problem - should be 5$ on ebay Here in germany it is such - if not AT codes also pass throug IR .

    Yes the base is kindof hyperterminal - if you have a cable open hyperterm and play a bit with it its easy

    On my view the soft is the biggest problem

    why only dial ? why not display ( hope with nokia its possible) also sms on the car pc's screen and adressbook etc etc ??

    I had 2 nokias of the 6 series ( 6150 and 6120 - dont worry these ar e European models) and now because of crappy quality i switched to siemens

    Kindly all phones support AT commands ( some commands only are different from amnufacturer to manufacturer )

    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.
    Nothing happened.
    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.

    Start with something simple, to test your connection.
    The phone should act like a modem.
    So if you type,

    From a HyperTerminal:
    AT <enter>
    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.

    ATx
    OK
    AT+CGMI
    Nokia Mobile Phones

    OK
    AT+CGMM
    Nokia 6210

    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:

    AT
    OK
    AT+CMGF=1
    OK
    AT+CMGS="+15127752607",129
    >This is a test. WOW!
    +CMGS: 49

    OK
