Sending and Receiving SMS on Nokia 3100, 3120
Posted on 2005-05-03
I am doing a project on "SMS controlled computer". On the computer a visual basic program will be running
all the time with a mobile phone connected to that computer.
The program will be polling the sms inbox to check any message have arrived and if there is any message it will take some action based on that message like "shutdown", "restart", "download" a file from the internet, scheduling jobs etc.
In most of the mobile phones the arrived message is saved directly to the phone and not to the sim. For example Nokia 3310, 3315 stores to sim but Nokia 1100, 2100, 3100, 3120 stores to the phone directly.
So i am not bothered whether the message is stored on sim or phone.My requirement is that the coding should be capable of reading the message as soon as it arrives absolutely without any human interaction.
On my Sony Ericsson mobile the message will be saved to the phone as soon as it arrives. There is product from ActiveXperts.com group which is capable of reading messages from sim memory and "NOT" from phone
memory. so this product is useless to me. if i once store that
indivisual message manually to the sim card using "Save to archive" then this product can read it as the message is in sim card now. but this product is useless to me as it requires human interaction of saving message to sim memory. There is no option in the mobile phone like "Save arriving messages to SIM directly". If this option was there then my problem will be solved but it does not exist on my mobile or any other mobile that i have seen.
So finally i want to know the Model of the mobile phone for which which we can read the sms absolutely without any human interaction. I am not bothered whether the sms is stored to phone or sim. the coding should just read it as soon as it arrives..
Recently i purchased the Nokia 3120 (very similar to 3100 with the shape of buttons modified). This is a series40 handset. I have the DKU-5 cable too. If you can suggest the code for this hand set i will retain this else i am prepared to buy a new for which the code is compatible. I have heard about AT commands but dont know how to implement them. Please explain me this concept too.
I think you understand my requirement..
If not i wil always to ready to explain more abt this..
I will be waiting for your expert replys..
