Not that I know of...

You may be able to do this if the phone you are writing for is a Symbian phone.  But then you will need to be coding in C++.  And only for those phones that are running the Symbian OS...

For the Nokia phones, there is now a Python library too, but this at present isn't mature enough to do what you want to do either...

Aye, you are lucky, I used to live in UK but I had to move back.
