I have a work in which i need to send and receive SMS from a desktop app. I have seen that smart phone has built-in GSM modem so i am thinking to utilize a mobile phone instead of purchasing standalone GSM modem.
I looked into google a lot and found few examples on the net especially on the codeproject.com where the authors shown how we can send SMS from a modem or mobile phone (for example: http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/38705/Send-and-Read-SMS-through-a-GSM-Modem-using-AT-Com). I have downloaded and tried few of the programs but nothing worked. In all of the programs one thing is common that they are using Serial ports for communication while i am connecting my mobile to pc with a USB port. I am not sure is there any way i can do it in java or i can virtually convert my USB port to com port.
