This code opens a file named COM1:. It would only open a serial port if you had a device named COM1:, which is likely only going to work on PHP for Windows. It then oddly creates a file handle for read write, and then only reads from the file handle until no more data is available to be read and then closes the file handle.


It's unlikely that your mobile phone would have a serial interface for sending SMS messages unless it was running Windows Mobile and you wrote the Interface yourself.
