I'm not sure I understand the need to know how to open a serial port?

The port is opened and all those.


  .WriteLine("AT+CMGL=\"REC UNREAD\"")

The two lines above are ma problems. How do i write then out in Vb.Net such that it doesn't give me errors, prefarably using cescQuote to replace "".

Thank you.

So you just need to know how strings work in VB.Net?  You're getting an error in VB.Net because of those strings, not an error response from your device?

And you're sure you mean VB.Net and not C#, right? (Tthose strings resemble C# code, and you've posted this question in the C# Zone, but you're also referring to VB.Net, which is why I'm not sure what language you're talking about).

Here's a couple tutorials that describe strings in VB.Net:

Here's a silly console program that might give you a hint.

Module Module1

    Sub Main()
        Dim string1 As String

        string1 = "world"

        Console.WriteLine("Hello """ & string1 & "!""")
        Console.Write("Press any key to exit...")
    End Sub

End Module

To tack on to terbert's comment, unfortunately, in VB you can't use the "\r" or "\n" syntax. You'll have to concatenate one of VB's constants:
' Carriage return: vbCr
' Line feed:       vbLf
' CR/LF:           vbCrLf

.WriteLine("AT+CMGF=1" & vbCr)

The syntax for using quotes in string literals is different too.

I STRONGLY recommend you have a look at some tutorials; if you don't have a good understanding  of strings I think it's going to be very difficult for you to write anything useful.

Thanks everyone all the same.
