You should first check that your phone and cable are GSM compatible. Connect to a COM port and start HyperTerminal. Select the port and enter AT. The phone should reply OK.

That was the easy bit.

The hard bit is that the Open Source code available for sending PROPER SMS messages (not just 8-bit text messages) does not use VB. Futhermore making up the PDU data elements which contain the message is not trivial. If your project does not involve the nitty-gritty of messaging I suggest you use an open source package. http://smslink.sourceforge.net/related.html has some apps and links where you can start. Feel free to ask for futher clarification.
