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!

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
