Mobile Phone
I have seen a lot of threads anywhere about interacting a pc via vb program to a mobile phone through a GSM modem. Bu ti have just downloaded a program, including a crack (pls forgive me, i have no money to buy it), named Logo Manager, and it manipulates my mobile phone without a GSM modem. I just used a data cable connected to a serial port. With it, you cand send sms, logo, ringtones and th elikes. My question is, can vb do such things? I mean a vb program.

Mobile Phone Interaction With VB
I was wondering how you would go about setting up VB to respond when a connected mobile phone rings, and then based on digits entered perform certain routines.

For example, the phone rings, then if the person on the other end presses digit 1 then # it calls a function:

DigitPressed( 1 )

or if the person pressed digits: 135# the function would be called:

DigitPressed( 135 )

hope this makes sense,

Mobile Phone Keypad In Vb6

Does anyone know about any vb6 that runs/works as a mobile?

I mean:

Key from 0 to 9....

If someone touches "2" the A comes. If you dont type during two seconds the "A" keeps stayig there and the cursor goes ahead. If you touch during those two seconds the key "1" turns it into "B" again...etc

So....a mobile but in a VB6.

Kind Regards.

p.s..Could you send even an example on a couple of keys...the "1" or "2"

Phone/Mobile Validation
Hi there,

I'm working with a validation for a phone and mobile number at the moment and I used the type many times before but would like to do it this time a little different !!! (But with the same code).

Here the problem:
I would like to have my TextBox
VB Code:
txt_AddressClient(8) in Case 8:

A TextBox where I could use the Phone OR the Mobile Number, and the piece of code below shows how I used it before.

PhoneFormat and MobilePhoneFormet are my two Public Functions in a validation module. I have to say also that I'm working with Australien phone/mobile numbers where as (phone is like (07)5488-6619, and mobile like (0418)123-589)

VB Code:
Case 4:            Case 5:            If Len(Me.txt_AddressClient(5).Text) = 14 Then            Else                If intPhone = 1 Then                  If Len(Me.txt_AddressClient(5).Text) = 10 Then                       Me.txt_AddressClient(5).Text = PhoneFormat(ByVal Me.txt_AddressClient(5).Text)                  End If                End If            End If            intPhone = 1                Case 6:            If Len(Me.txt_AddressClient(6).Text) = 14 Then            Else                If intPhone = 1 Then                  If Len(Me.txt_AddressClient(6).Text) = 10 Then                       Me.txt_AddressClient(6).Text = MobilePhoneFormat(ByVal Me.txt_AddressClient(6).Text)                  End If                End If            End If            intPhone = 1                Case 7:        Case 8:

Something else what I would like to know is what does the number 14 in the code stands for ???

Thanks aktell

Sending Mobile Phone SMS's

has anybody tried sending mobile phone SMS's (=text message) via a GSM phone?

The scenario I'm thinking about, is that I'd have a VB software monitoring certain actions and if necessary it would be able to shoot out a SMS via a GSM. Naturally I'd need to connect the GSM to the pc serial port. I'd prefer using a Nokia phone as they are easy to obtain second hand.

All help is welcome regards,

Mobile Phone Challenge!!
Can anyone design a program (and provide the code!!) that'll open a MIDI file, let the user choose one of the contained instrumental tracks and convert it into the code that a Nokia 3210e (and most new Nokias) can use as a custom ringing tune? I had a go but couldn't figure out how to open a MIDI file to see the notes (like Cubasis does...)

Any ideas? There's no prize, but I'll be well chuffed! I wanna get the Duke Nukem or James bond tunes on me new phone!

How To Control Mobile Phone By VB?
Dear All,
   I want to control my mobile for send sms to other mobile. how can i do it?


User Interface - Mobile Phone
I am trying to make a simple user-interface for a mobile phone. I have all the designs worked out and have made all the forms, pictures, labels etc. however, as i am so new to the language I am having troubles trying to code the text messaging screen. All I think I need is a text box that when you press 2 on the keypad for example, it comes up 'a' in the text box, press it again and it comes up 'b' etc. just like an ordinary mobile phone. But does anyone know how i should code this?

also, it would be nice if the text box had a little timer so if no button was pressed in 3 seconds or so, the text cursor would move on to the next character.

Many thanks

Mobile Phone Messages And VB6 Question
This is what i'm trying to do:

Store customer details and their mobile phone numbers in an microsoft access database then using a VB6 front end send certain customers a text message to alert them when their order as arrived in store i.e. "Your order as arrived at the Leeds branch"

My question is: How on earth am I going to do this? - I'm not after solutions I just need to know if its possible to do and if so the basic requirements to what I need

If possible a push in the right direction of what VB6 components I will need to use/research furher in to i.e. 'microsoft comm control 6' or a good website tutorial that anyone knows about

And regarding the sms sending at the lowest cost possible (like free ) would be good - I'm in the UK

I don't mind paying per sms sent but is there a company that I can prepay say like top up my account with 10 then when its gone I can't send anymore because I don't want to end up with some HUGE phone/credit card bill

Thanks in advance

Mobile Phone Unlocking Software
I dont know if any of you know what im on about but i wud like to make a piece of software to remove the service provider locks on a phone. This all sounds illegal but it is not and there is lots of software out there to do this, but i want to make my own and hope this project would let me understand more about how to use VB.
I need to know how to use algorithms.And also how to port the alogrithms that i have from C to VB.
If any1 wants to know more about what an unlocker is then i would be happy to send them an unlock program for them to look at.


Edit by wonko: I can confirm that SP unlocking is NOT illegal but changing the IMEI is illegal in the UK.
Please bear this in mind when you reply.

Hi i would like to find some decent resources, so that i can try and learn how to use mbus cables to read basic mobile phone information. (ideally nokia)

someone sent me the source code to unlock old nokias, but i have never used mscomm, so it does not make much sense.

but if anyone has any source code for reading serial number of phone that would be greatly appreciated.

This may be out of my league but if anyone has any pointers on where to start it would be greatly appreciated. Even just a good site to learn more on mscomm.

Kind regards

Help Using Modem As A Phone
I am trying to find out how to use the 56k modem on my computer for voice vs normal data use. I'd like to write a program that will act like a phone, but letting me dial out via the modem and use voice through the microphone and speakers on my computer.
I'm also trying to figure out how I can write a program that monitors the modem during normal dialup use so I can tell when calls are coming in.

I have found *scarce* information on using VB to access and control the dialup modem. A couple of references have said something about TAPI, someone else said something about MSCOMM.

This project is really interesting to me and I'd like to find out more. Can anyone point me to more information or to some sample code?


Voice Modem, How Do I Get .wav's To Go Over The Phone???
I have an external voice modem, and I have some .wav sound files.
My question, and it would seem like a simple one, is how do I send my sound files to a remote telephone? As in an answering machine mode, or verbal information service to a caller or to return such information by phone?
Try as I might, this simple information is so abstrusely documented, I don't have a definite coding plan to do it.

I am aware that TAPI has calls for this functionality, but I want to go at it completely within my VB6 program, since I have already done almost everything else there. So no TAPI, just straight communications with the modem.

Someone who knows, please help!

Phone Calls Via Modem

WAV Files Via Modem To Phone...

catching the mouse! Pls help! Ur thanx for picking up the
phone, u're on candid sound recorder."
I play it to the other side who's picking up the phone.

How'd I do that?
Or vice-versa. Recording the wave file.

Using The Modem To Dial A Phone Number
Hello. I need to know how to access the modem through a program I write. What I need to do is make an object which will call a phone number through the modem in the computer... This would be all fine and dandy except for one thing... I don't have any idea about how to do it! Any ideas would be greatly appreciated and if someone out there has an object that does that... well... I wouldn't mind getting in touch with you!
Another thing: The idea is that the object can call a beeper or even send a SMS message to a GSM phone... now the SMS idea is stretcing it I know... I doubt that there is any "universal way" of sending a SMS message from a computer. At least you can't just call the phone. So... if anyone out there knows anything about this... his/her help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm gonna use Java for the project but this could also be written in any other language. Maybe a COM object would suit best???

Thanks a lot in advance!

p.s. I don't know which forum I should post this in so I'll post it in a few... hope you forgive me for that!
