Trouble connecting mobil phone to PC

  Pinochio 15:52 15 Aug 03

This is probably a stupid question but....

I have connected my mobile phone to my PC with a cable connected to the PC's serial port (comm 1). Unfortunately, my PC doesn't seem to reallze that the phone is there. There is no indication that anything is connected to the serial port, and when
I try to run software designed to make changes to the phone's settings, I get an error message saying "connect the cable to the phone".

Do I need some software for this, or what?

Grateful for any help

Do I need some software for this, or what? the serial port enabled in the bios?

  Pinochio 18:26 15 Aug 03

Yes, it is enabled. If I do need software, anyone know what kind?

I have a Nokia phone & the software came with the phone & accessories. Mine too is connected via the serial port.

Mine is a WAP phone - perhaps that makes a difference.

I would go on to your phone manufacturers web site & you should be able to find out.

Thanks Brambles. I didn't get any sofware with the phone but its an old one (Phillips Savvy) and not a WAP phone. I've tried e-mailing the Phillips web site but they don't seem in a hurry to reply.

Huggyg71, the OS is Windows 98SE. Can you offer any further advice? Thanks.

Thanks Goonerbill. Unfortunately, I can't find any software that will unlock it.

Having spent many hours looking and failing to find anything, I think I am going to pay someone to unlock the phone and save myself any more bother.
