    hello, how can i make a computer read an sms message automatically from a mobile phone attached to it through its usb port and execute it? i intend to send instructions through sms to a mobile phone attached to a computer and make the computer read the sms in the mobile phone and just execute it automatically, for example to shut down that computer? can anybody advise me on how to write code for this or send me some sample code? (my mail, yonahokoth (at) thanks in advance.

    You can use a GSM modem for this purpose, than having a phone. This allows better programmability. You need to have a SIM in the GSM Modem.

    What you have to do is, to write a Background Service program on your computer to poll the GSM modem for messages, and take actions upon any message received.
