Use Hero as a GSM modem.

    I find lots of info about using the Hero as a 3G modem and that works fine for me to get onto the internet.

    I'm a software developer and want a PC application to communicate with a remote monitoring device that has GSM capability. I'll probably need to buy a dedicated GSM modem in future but as a temporary solution wondered if my Hero could act like one.

    Ideally I'd like to install some software/do whatever to get a new virtual serial port appearing on my PC (Windows 7).
    Then, I open a terminal emulator and send an 'ATDxxxx' command to my Hero to establish a connection with the remote end.
    Send/receive data as required.
    +++ or ATH to hangup.

    Is this possible?

    The HTCSync software creates an NDIS driver for GPRS/3G but not a serial port for GSM.

    Have you made any progress on this? I would be interested in getting this working on my Google Nexus One.
