I will suggest using a GSM/GPRS modem.... The reason being that it is much more cheaper then the phones you have listed and also it is built for such applications.....  You can look for any modem and the one we are using are Wavecom modems that cost roughly 100 US $..... They support all the standard GSM AT commands.....

For Nokia related AT commnds see this page and the downloadable document......


Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.

I have recently developed a fully functional application that sends and receives SMS messages directly to/from the computer over mobile phone.  I used Nokia 7250i model from Nokia Series 40 model group, with DKU-5 (USB) cable connection.  I tested the application with 6610 model too, and it works just fine.  I am convinced that all models from Series40 can work.  I also tested AT commands over Hyper Terminal with InfraRed installed as virtual COM port, and it also works great.

Finally, my suggestion is to get any of the Nokia Series 40 models, which all support AT commands, and a DKU-5(USB) cable, or IRDA adapter and start working on your application!  You will find that Nokia as the largest mobile producer in the world, has quite good support, and that many people use it.  You can easily find AT command sets, and even predefined code.

If you decide to accept my answer I could lead you in next posts to the final solution!

HI Edin :
I think I'm already have one of Series 40 models (nokia 6610i ,nokia 6310i) but i cant work currectly with them for example in HyperTerminal  when I write some AT commands like CMGL,CMGR,CMGS there are some strange responses and also can you tell me how can I install a virtual COM port as InfraRed  ?

Now, the problem you have might be with Hyper Terminal setup.  Here are the steps to setting up a proper connection:

1. Open Hyper Terminal
2. Press Cancel
3. Go to File->Properties
4.  Select appropriate COM port (check in Device Manager how your cable is installed)
5. Press Settings tab
6. Chose Windows keys, Emulation: TTY, and ASCII Setup->Send Line ends with line feeds.
7.press OK
8.  Try using your AT comands, lik ATGMM, ATGMI

NOTE: Check your cable, install it properly(DKU-5), connect it properly

And here you can find software that installs IrDA as virtual COM port:

From my experience, Siemens phones via cable or toothblue are generally more stable and the closest to what you have with a GSM modem.
