Has anyone any good and cheap suggestions for the hardware to use to be able to detect an incoming SMS message and display it on a PC. Do some of the phones have data ability (to detect incoming SMS, I believe I need to use the “AT+CNMI” command) or do I need some sort of GSM Data Modem ?.
This is a low frequency of use application.
Thanks

If you use either a Symbian or Windows Mobile-based device, and also use Microsoft Outlook, you might want to give Jeyo Mobile Extender a look.

This allows you to send SMS messages from Outlook, as well as automatically synchronise all of the text messages stored on your phone. No cable or Bluetooth is required. If you have a phone capable of WiFi, you can connect to the jeyo server via WiFi, and also connect to the server with WiFi or wired Internet on your PC. You can also forward SMS messages via E-mail. When the PC and phone are connected to the Jeyo server, a message will appear on your PC the moment it's received by the phone.http://www.jeyo.com/extender.asp

Sony Ericsson phones can do this by simply using the SE PC suite that comes with many of the phones, or free software such as myphoneexplorer found here.

I use Myphoneexplorer via bluetooth which then just connects to the PC as I wander in and out of range of the PC.

And virtually ever mid to high end Nokia for the past 4+ years comes with a data cable and PC Suite to allow you to do the same things.
