Now first of all non-techies(mechies too :P) ,those who are not aware of AT commands,why are you still alive on mother earth and in case if you want to continue your living than read this article first.To show my greatness I would like to say AT commands are standard set of commands to communicate with GSM mobile.Now ya’ll be thinking why the F I need to use them?’Cause It’s fun dumbos !:D and also this will teach you how to mess with you phone! 😉
Nokia phone (me poor thingy used Nokia 5130-c 😦 )
Windows OS (Will try on Linux soon)
Nokia PC suite (For USB to Serial drivers)
A sledgehammer(To crush your phone in case this tutorial doesn’t work)
Don’t be wiseass and follow my lead step by step:
1>Open hyperterminal . Program>Accessories>Communication>hyperterminal
2>Now here country code,area code and phone no. are not important so don’t get confused.Important thing is selecting your phone from list.Here I expect that you have installed Nokia PC suite already otherwise your phone will not appear here.
3>After that select cancel in every dialog box.Yes cancel.
Now go to File>Properties
Now go to Settings tab and press “ASCII Setup” button.
4>Now you are ready to send your first command to your mobile.
Type AT+CMGF=1.If everything is correct than it should return OK.
5>There are plenty of commands you can try.here I will show you how to send SMS using AT command.
Type AT+CMGS=”no whom you want to send msg with country code”
Than a prompt will come. Type your message there.When you are done press Ctrl + Z and than press Enter.Voila! SMS is sent.
You can explore a lot many command but don’t mess with mobile! 😛
