Cell Phone

P: n/a
Hi,
I want to create an application that communicates with a cell phone (not
smartphone) to synchronize data (contacts, appointments and tasks). could
this be done by extending Activesync. In general how could I communicate
with my cell phone using C#.

Any ideas? Any points where to start?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I do not think it's possible but in any case I think it will be dependand of
the phone model.

In addition I do not think you can use ActiveSync with other than a
SmartPhone.

You could also check the CF ng

some thing with web service?
The problem is that you may need to write a J2ME app for that cell phone.

Well, that is IF the phone support it.
The good thing about SmartPhone is that you know for sure a certain set of
features are present. In all other cases this is not true.

If your "cell phone" isn't a SmartPhone with some version of Windows Mobile
installed then it doesn't speak ".NET". Most "other" phones (including many
Smartphones) speak J2ME, so you are off in JAVAland.

There are tools out there that allow you to create apps in .NET and still be
able to run on a cell phone or an handheld device. I created a C#
application and its running on a blackberry device. So there are tools you
can use instead of going through the learning process of java

one was appforge, which is now owned by Oracle
Flowfinity, http://www.flowfinity.com/developers/blackbird.html - it allows
you to create C# app and run them on a blackberry

these are 2 I've looked at but I've currently have a app running on several
blackberry's using the flowinity blackbird tool.
