Hai friends,
I want to develop an Application that will send SMS through, my mobile phone connected to the serial port. Is there any component available or can I develop a program to write and read from the serial ports. I went through the java Wireless toolkit but I didn't get any Idea about how to use it...
Please help....
Kind regards,
Jithesh

Is it a requirement connecting your mobile to a serial port? I've used www.simplewire.com. They provide a simple java SDK for you to send SMS messages from your java programs.
hope it helps

Hai friend,
I tried the simplewire, but each time it contacts with its site and decides whether to connect or not.I felt its a tedious work so i tried with the J2ME Wireless toolkit. but then I found that the programming is difficut.

disclaimer: there are many sites that offer this service (I can't remember the names/links), I just happened to use simplewire and found it easy to use.

didn't get that, what specific error are you getting?, can you share the error?
You need to have a network connection to send the SMS (duh).

easy, hey? ohh, and you have to pay for the messages...

If you read the previous posts, you might realize that people don't understand what your problem is. Sorry, but with the description you made I cannot give any answer/suggestion.
try being more descriptive with the problem your having. And more importantly, what you want to achieve.
cheers
