    Angry Serial communication

    i would like to serially connect to an external device directly, not a pc with my nokia. I cannot seem to find any cables for it, and i heard that with usb you need a master/slave architecture for it to work.

    I would like to read data from the serial cable into my phone directly.

    i have a 6681, but if needed will buy any other model.

    Please help.

    I have no symbian c experience, but am master in j2me and java, and i know win32 c++ and ansi c, so plz help.

    There is no serial port on most current mobile devices. Depending on your needs you can experiment with abusing audio-lines, but that is all. And yes, the phone can not be USB host.

    Abusing audio lines... do you mean connecting to microphone wire, send there serial signal, and decode recorded "audio" in Symbian application?
