floAt's Mobile Agent goes Open Source
floAt's Mobile Agent does for the Windows machine what is native on the Bluetooth enabled Mac OS X: it links to a mobile via Bluetooth, and notifies the user of incoming calls and SMS. It even shows the caller name, if you have Caller Id enabled and the calling line identification matches a number in your phone's memory.

It's pretty similar to Phone King, but it runs on the desktop or notebook.

The application now moved from the original homepage to the SourceForge.net website. There's bug tracking, project statistics, and more information.

The original page lists this as the functionality:

  • SMS sending, receiving, Archive, Manage, 7-bit, 8-bit and Unicode (16-bit UCS2) encoding, Reply Request, Flash SMS. New incoming message pop-up/notify.
  • Upload File to phone, basically any files which is accepted by the phone, depending on the model.
  • SIM Phonebook editing
  • Read-only hierarchical phonebook (only numbers are available, other information such as Company name seems only available in OBEX form
  • Connect via Native Bluetooth (MS-XP SP1), Native IRDA, Serial Port and any device with virtual serial port. Outgoing call initiate/hang-up and status monitoring
  • Incoming call control and monitoring
  • Active/Dynamic menu support
  • Keypad monitoring to detect key sequence for remote control
  • Active scripting support (VBScript and JScript, other add-on available)
  • Multiple SMS recipients, just drag more numbers to the “To” box, or type it in semi column separated, No Group supports yet.
  • Power and RSSI monitoring
  • Seamless reconnection to keep the link and monitoring active
  • Tray mode when minimized


  • More information: https://sourceforge.net/projects/fma/...
