Help required for developing cellular mobile software

Respected Friends,
I want to make an application in J2ME for Sony Ericson K700i mobile phone which is connected to the serial port of the PC,this application would be running inside the cellular mobile phone,when I will run this application all the files in the "File Manager" folder of mobile with .txt extensions would be copied to the PC to some paticular folder passing through the serial port to which the mobile is connected,I am facing some problems while devloping this application,my questions are as follows:

1) Is it possible to transfer a file on the serial port,off course we can transfer interger type data to the serail port but integer is a primitive data type and while transferring files we will actually pass the object related to that file to the serial port of the PC,is this really possible?
2) Sony Ericson K700i does'nt implements JSR 75(PDA Optional Packages for the J2METM Platform,which is used to access PIM data and file systems) which means that we can not access the file system of this mobile so is it really possible to access the files stored in this mobile through my application?
3) Once the file is transferred to the serial port than will its contents of the file ramains in its original state or will be transferred to some kind of bianry data and we have to bring it in the original state.On the PC end will I need to write some other application which continiously monitores the serial port and will receive this file.

I would be waiting for your precious replies.

Thanking You,
Salman Faraz.
