    Post How to connect to mobile using cable connection

    I am developing a linux based utility that I could use to send either sms or mms via a S60 5th edition symbian phone connected to my PC via cable connection. How can I do that?

    I was able to find stuff related to connecting via bluetooth but I want to connect via cable

    Thanks

    Re: How to connect to mobile using cable connection

    Your problem is that Nokia hasn't written USB cable drivers for Linux for their phones (just Windows).

    Without the drivers that knows the protocol Nokia phones talk to PC software (like PC Suite/Ovi Suite), it is going to be hard reverse-engineering (Nokia has not published the protocol/interface specs).
