I am new in wireless programming but am an experienced VB6 developer. Am writing an application to be able to send and receive SMS. I have researched and all I need is a GSM Modem or a GSM phone. I have also found some sample codes on the net such as http://experts.about.com/q/Visual-Basic-1048/Send-SMS.htm
. This code is able to dial a number when I connect my Telephone line on my laptop. But when I try to connect a mobile phone....it does not connect to that. I get the problem with the port number. The program is using MSComm control, I wonder how to set the port number of a cell phone connected thru' USB port (in other words, is it possible to use USB on Com port, and if yes, how do you determine/set the port number)?.
I will really appreciate if any one can help me with a way of both sending and receiving SMS from my VB application. Sample codes are prefered.
