I've previously got max to make phone calls via my mobile phone.
It required establishing a bluetooth connection to the mobile, and then
using a serial port connection from Max to the phone - I needed to run a
serial port interface program specific to my phone (SonyEricsson K750i).
Dialing required working out the appropriate ATD commands to send across the
serial link to the phone - this was painful, but I got it to work.
The application was a performance piece were I was remixing people's
ringtone's live - so I set up a system whereby they entered their phone
number and placed their phone underneath a mic, and then max could call the
phone and record their ringtone so I could start remixing it - all a bit of
overkill in the end, but it was fun, and I figure I might use that trick
Sending audio to the phone is not possible over the serial link - but once
you've dialed you could just dac~ to a speaker sitting next to the phone -
the old fashioned way :-)
With the right phone I believe sending SMS might also work, but there are
internet gateways for that which might be easier to use.
Hope these suggestions help.
