How would I go about connecting a mobile phone to an arduino board? Answered

I'm attempting to have data from an arduino board, be sent to a mobile phone, in this case its either a Nokia 1100 or Nokia 3200, and then with which the mobile phone in the form of an sms, will send that data.

How would I go about connecting a mobile phone to an arduino board?
I've been looking at data cables for each phone. Seen some which is phone-to-usb, and some phone-to-rs 232.

Any ideas?


If you know the data connection voltage  on the phone, there is no need to go to RS232 and back to data on the Arduino. If you can't find out, then stick with RS232 signalling - USB is horrible to work with for a beginner.

Thanks. Haha, makes a lot of sense. I must be getting tired. Managed to find something.<br /><br /><a href="http://pinouts.ru/CellularPhones-Nokia/nokia_pop_pinout.shtml">pinouts.ru/CellularPhones-Nokia/nokia_pop_pinout.shtml</a><br /><br />Thanks.<br /><br />How would I go about now connecting to the the arduino board?<br />

This is an interesting read. See halfway down where it descibes how to send SMS messages from Nokia phones with a serial cable.<br /><br />This topic on the arduino forums is a discussion of sending SMS messages using FBUS protocol (which nokias have)<br />

Awesome. Thanks a lot for the link. <br />Lol, embedtronics is such and old site. Had a bit of a read, having to deal with hex....*cringe* xD<br /><br />
