You can use IrDA to communicate between devices /PC<-> Cell phone/. I use Motorola P7389 with IrDA interface. You must load appropriate driver and your PC will find the phone like as modem. This is a sample from the motorola's .INF file:

Many Nokia phones have a built in serial bus that lets one use the phone digitally with a software modem package and special adapter cord. The adapter cord has a rs232 converter in and plugs into the bus of the phone and the serial port of the PC.

Another way of using a cellphone is to have a PCMCIA (PC CARD) celllphone modem, these hook into the handsfree phone sockets, you will need an adapter according to which phone you haver, I believe these only work with analogue phones.
