Reuse Your old personal GSM phone for SMScontrol and monitoring

BLOG GsmThe idea was born from the knowledge that everyone of us has in the drawer at least one old GSM phone,that, for varied reasons, we do not use! The following application is realized using a PIC microcontrollerconnected to Ericsson T18 phones, testing the compatibility also with A1018 and T28. But it is notcommercialized for reasons of difficult availability of the connectors, instead it can be a lot interesting forhobby use.Moreover at the end of the post you can view the links for having other combinations of Microcontroller andcell phones.
The target is remote activated (boiler, control relais..etc.) or receiving SMS in alarm case (gas orburglar alarm) to give again a life to our old cellularGSM2
[ bidirectional GSM Remote Control - remote activator - receiver of SMS alarms - ]This is the picture of the ended project, the missed components are optional (Quartz Y1 and J1connector...).The J2 connector is used in order to connect GSM2 to phone, therefore you will have to use acable with connectors evidently adaptable to the used telephone.
This is ALL the documentation for the realization of GSM2 design.
