Expert Advise in connecting Handheld Phones and Desktop

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -


I am planning to create a new application that will receive payments using SIM CARDS IN handheld devices. Is there any way that I can create this with Visual Basic 10? What are the basic requirements that you can suggest so that it will be easier for me to integrate the devices. Do I need extra hardware to accept queries in Sim Cards? How to integrate this. Can anyone explain this to me how can I easily plot my first step and to complete this project? Please help! Any suggestion will help.

Hello Marie!

Your project is quite vast, difficult but attainable and really possible. We have same project when I was in college. I believe that there are laptops or most laptops now do have sim card holders. You need to create multiple-SMS gateway for you to have multiple SMS-connections.

There are multiple sim card-readers/programmer now that you can just plug-in to USB port. Integrating this sim card to your VB application is quite a pain. You need some DLL files to read data from it. You need also Smart Card framework to communicate with it. We encountered lot's of errors while working with this, so you need error handlers within your application. I suggest looking for sim card reader/programmer will be the best way for you to start. Since before we have limited technology, right now it is much easier to achieve it since everything improved and evolved.
