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.

It's good to know you're ok too. Keep up the good work here m8 and do not disappear like me. It's always good to see familiar faces :)
