 Abstract-
Nowadays, mobile phones are indispensabledevices; it has become a trend now that college anduniversity students are owners of such devices and thisparticular factor plays a very important role behind thecoming up with the proposed system. “PC 2 PhoneEvent Announcer”, is the name of the new proposedsystem suggested to solve the existing communicationproblem between the College staff and students. As thename suggests, it can be deduced that the system willinvolve computers and phones, more specifically mobilephones.

NTRODUCTION
 Mobile phones play an essential role in the mobilecommunication of the modern world. They make aperson easily accessible. ‘PC 2 Phone EventAnnouncer’ makes it possible to access a group of persons in just a few clicks. The system will permitlecturers, records office staff and the librarian tocontact students by sending SMS through theircomputers. The records office and the library willhave a special feature called Autorun. This featurewill do the job of the specified staff members byautomatically scanning through the database for anylate payments or overdue books and send SMS oremails to the concerned students.In this paper we are going to conduct a study of the current system on the basic definition andconcepts about Pc 2 Phone event announcer systems.Furthermore, we have done a small investigationabout this topic. In the present scenario each andevery person uses mobile phones. They have becomea trend, students from every college and university arethe owners of mobile phones and this particular factorplays a very vital role behind this project. Mobilephones play an important role in the mobilecommunication of the modern world. They make aperson to contact with others very quickly.

In this ever increasing world of communicationtechnology, the use of computers and cell-phones isgetting wider and wider day by day. From the time thecell-phones were introduced to the market, the PCsand hand-phones have been increasingly sharing thesimilar applications and features. Nowadays, althoughbeing dependant from each other, they’re beinginterconnected and inter-dependant in several ways.The following literature review tries to brief onseveral different studies that have been done on thisinterconnectivity of PCs and cell phones in differentrespects and also on different ways that cell-phoneservices have facilitated people’s lives.A research is conducted to find out how SMStechnology can be used for as means of quick communication in particular the bulk SMS servicesused in organizations.

MERGENCY TEXT COMMUNICATIONS
:Being an absolutely useful communicational tool,text communications can specially be used in casesand places where there’s no possibility of using voicecalls. Wonsang Song, Jong Yul Kim, and HenningSchulzrinne, Piotr Boni and Michael Armstrongfocused on the advantages of using textcommunications like IM and SMS in Emergencyservices. They focused on such features like being fastin service, text-based which can be accompanied withmultimedia and Automatic Geographic Location intheir article. Among the advantages of this servicethey pointed at its easy usability especially for thedeaf and in places in which there’s no chance of having a voice call. Also they mentioned that usingthis service, the current network can be maintainedand it does away with the need to broaden the network bandwidth and so is cost-efficient [1].A

:Women University Rawalpindi of Pakistan hasstudied on a remote SMS-based system of controllinghome appliances while the user is away from home in2009. Using this system, users can have a globalaccess to their home appliances and this featureenables them to automate their homes and secure themagainst intrusion with a relatively low cost. This isdone through SMS using GSM technology. Since thissystem is wireless it’s so adaptable and cost-efficient.Some technologies used here are GSM, RF (RadioFrequency), GPRS Modem, and Cell-phone via serialport RS 232 [2].Also Fdhil T. Aula (2005) studied the same issue anddiscussed the techniques of using SMS for controllinghome appliances through PC Parallel Port Interfacing[3].SMS

The technologies used here are Bluetooth,GSM, GPRS, EMR (Electronic Medical Record),infrared port, Serial cable connection, and RS232serial data cable. Speaking about the advantages of using mobile communication in e-health, they believethat it enables, excels and aids accurate predictions,exact analysis, updates on diseases via SMS, timelier,a more comprehensive public health information andimproved system of diagnosis disease tracking [5].SMS-B

It can be of greathelp to governments because of its potential forboosting up the official processes and doing awaywith much of bureaucracies.

Some features usedin their SMS-Based E-Government Model are Event-Based and Scheduled-Based SMS and the usedtechnologies are SMS Cell Broadcast (CBS), SMSCand HTTP Protocols, ISP or ADSL, and ShortMessage Driver.

:Michael Yerushalmy & Oshrat Benzaken hasreviewed the ways that Mobile phone services canfacilitate the education. Technologies used here areGPRS Modem, 3G, WiFi, J2ME, Medlets, and IMode.These technologies are used to send Instant Messagesto mobile phone, and using those technologies thissending of IMs can be done with a PC using a GPRSModem. The main advantage of using this technologyis coming to the users’ present location and theiravailability [9]. Classmates can easily get in touchwith their peers and teachers, do a group discussion,ask for personalized information and teachers cancheck the progress of their students with no need of physical presence.Saranphong Pramsane & Ridwan Sanjaya alsobelieves that a PC to phone communication throughSMS can be used in educational systems. The use of this system would result in closer relationshipsbetween teachers and students. They use technologieslike WAP, GPRS and GSM Modem, HTTP, SMPP.The advantages of using such PC to phone messagingtechnologies are remote access, reliability in packettransfers, and the fact that HTTPs are acceptable in allbrowsers. Also they’ve considered the fact that notonly texts but also multimedia files can be transferredfrom PCs to hand-phones using such technologies.This issue is of high importance and value ineducational systems. [10] Tutors can send studentswhatever materials they need and this way of transmittance of the data is so cost-effective andefficient which any student can afford it.Yet other researchers studied other differentapplications of PC-to-phone interconnections andmobile phone services. O. Awodele, E. R.Adagunodo, A.T. Akinwale, S. Idowu and M. Agbaje(2009) explained the use of cell-phone for deliveringthe exam results through SMS [11].Didier Chincholle, Michael Bjorn, ChristianNorlin & Morgan Lindqvist (2006) researched aboutthe development of a user-centered IMS-based systemthrough a user-oriented approach [12]. RajiveChakravorty spoke about the limitations of usingGSM and GPRS technologies in PC-to-phonecommunications and the advantages of using a TCP(Transmission Control Protocol) over GPRS [13]. In asimilar study, Laurie Butgereit explained theusefulness of GPRS technology in Instant Messagingand how IMs can be sent using GPRS. [14] NeseemAlrawi worked on the use of use of Mobile SMSthrough GPRS and Java technologies in computerevent communications [15]. Kjell suggested the useof Bluetooth and J2ME in sending and receipt of SMSand IM from PC to phone [16]. Also Klinkmanstudied the use of GSM Control SMS Gateway insending message to hand-phones from PCs. [17]Finally, In an interesting study, Mahesh Gogineni &Aishwarya Lackshmi discussed the techniques andadvantages of SMS in mobile phone that are capablebeing applied to urban microfinance [18].

 The proposed system will work easily; the lecturerswill have a system that will
enable
them to send SMSto their students from the web. They will have a LoginID and a password allowing them to access to thesystem. A student database consisting of studentinformation such as their phone numbers, ID andname will be provided in order to facilitate the job of the lecturer to choose the students. After lecturersuccessfully login he can send Pc 2 Phone EventAnnouncer information to students by SMS. They willalso have access to their respective timetables that willhelp for student retrieval as well (Fig. 1).

There will be another sub-system in the libraryand in the records office. This system will have twooptions. The system in the records office will give thestaff two options. One is to let the staff sort out whichstudents have not paid their tuition fees yet and sendreminders manually. The other one is the Autorunfunction. This function is about the system performingthat task. The system will go through the studentdatabase and identify the students who have notsettled their tuition fees yet. The system will then
