How to use Nokia F-bus to send an SMS message

If you have an old Nokia phone and want to hack it to send SMS messages, this tutorial by Alex at InsideGadgets should prove interesting. He’s produced a detailed tutorial showing the hardware and code needed to interface a Nokia 6110-series with an Arduino Duemilanove to send SMS messages. The Arduino connects to the phones F-bus connector using a simple three-wire two-resistor interface and transfers packets using the F-bus protocol. Check out Alex’s post for details on this protocol, code and important links.

    can’t wait till semi decent android phones get as cheap as old nokia phones (3310 or so)… would be awesome because they would are damn easier to interface with and most have like tons of hardware on them (gps,bluetooth, wifi, camera,accelerometrs, other sensors, etc.)

    look here what I made in just a few hours using MIT app companion, BT module and an android phone -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3Akt3SKhAs
