Hi to all,

I need to make an application that can send sms from a desktop pc using a windows mobile phone as a gsm modem. It can be a desktop app or a web app. 

The mobile phone is connected via USB. 

I don't want to use third party sms gateways.

Can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance

How to Set Up Remote Desktop with Windows Mobile 6.1 Read more: http://www.brighthub.com/mobile/win

Most Windows Mobile 6.1 devices come with RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) as an optional component - one that allows the user of the device to interact with a remote PC running Windows XP (or Vista), whether it's situated in the home or office.
Setup on your PC First

It's a topic that is surrounded by mystery, due to a combination of secrecy and apathy - yet Remote Desktop Mobile on Windows Mobile 6.1 is surprisingly easy to set up, with great results.

Remote working via your Windows Mobile 6.1 device is likely to be something that happens rarely - such as when you need to urgently retrieve a file, for instance. Whatever the reason Remote Desktop needs to be enabled on your Windows desktop PC before you can continue.

Serving Silverlight Apps from Windows Mobile

Even if mobile dev is not my every day work, thanks to the .Net Compact Framework, it's still .Net programming.

Here is the scenario:

You come back home, you have a windows mobile phone wifi capable and you want to quickly get access to your phone pictures from your home network.
You just activate the Wifi, run my app and then browse to the provided link from any computer on the network.

Building a Searchable Phone Directory with Windows SharePoint Services

I want to continue to build out the intranet site we've started in our previous articles. A standard item in every intranet is a staff/employee list. Most companies implementing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are large enough to have a database that contains all employees. We will use the aggregation features of SharePoint to include data from this database into our intranet.

Reading and Writing Images From a Windows Mobile Database using UltraLite 10(C#)

Periodically I get a request for information on how to read and write binary data to a database running on Windows Mobile. If you search the Internet you can typically find examples that are available on Windows Desktops or allow you to read and write to a local file system. The problem is that it can take a bit of work to get this code to work on Windows Mobile accessing a database.

Ultimately you might be asking, why would I want to store and image in a database? Well in an environment where you synchronizing data between a local mobile database and a consolidated (central) database this can be extremely useful. Imagine if an insurance adjuster went to an accident scene, took a picture of a damaged car, loaded it into his Windows Mobile database and then replicated that image up to the Insurance headquarters for approval. All of this could be done in a very short period of time when using images in the database. Another good example might be a doctor who was waiting for a patient chart to become available. If you could store the image in a database this chart could be sent down to the doctor's device once it became available.

For this article I am not going to get into how to synchronize the images to and from a remote and central database as this is typically fairly straightforward when using a data synchronization technologies like MobiLink

How to create a windows mobile (Smart Device) .Cab installer

A Cab file is the default setup format for Windows CE and Windows Mobile devices (similar to windows .msi files). You probably already have installed several application using .cab files, and are familiar with the concept. One point which is often unknown is that .cab files are processed by wceloader.exe, and it can only install one .cab file at a time. That means we cannot have nested .cab files. It doesn't mean we cannot have .cab files contained by another .cab, but the contained .cab files will not be installed during the installation of the container .cab. We should install it manually after the container .cab file installation has been completed.

There are two ways to create a cabinet (.Cab) file. The traditional one, and the friendly VS Smart Device Cab project which doesn't require additional coding, but which also relies on the traditional one at low-level.

Windows Mobile Wireless Ad Hoc Networking Tutorial permalink

Despite what I've written earlier about it is better to get a wireless router and using infrastructure mode, there are still situations where adhoc mode might be useful. Imagine visiting a friend who has a notebook with wireless connection. He also has internet connection, and you'd like to check your emails. But he needs to work on something with his notebook. Internet connection sharing using ad hoc mode would be useful here.

And so, I've re-written the guide for Windows Mobile 2003 and Windows XP with SP2. The old version of the guide for Pocket PC 2002 is still accessible

How to setup a Mobile Browser Emulator in Windows Mobile 6:

In the following tutorial, I cover the process of Setting up Windows Mobile 6 for Mobile Browser Emulation using the Microsoft Device Emulator. This enables a user to experience Windows Mobile 6 on a PC via Emulation without even owning a Windows Mobile 6 product. It can be a great way to test drive Windows Mobile 6 before purchasing a product with it installed. In our case, it allowed us to Emulate Windows Mobile Browsing so that we could optimize our sites for the Mobile viewing audience. Installation and Emulation is simple and fairly straight forward.
