Finding Cellcore examples for use in CE6.0

If you are trying out the Cellcore component in CE6.0 to dial voice numbers, receive calls, send and receive text messages and are looking for code examples then try the Smartphone SDK, there are examples under here most of which will compile as they are:

\Program Files\Windows CE Tools\wce500\Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone SDK\Samples\CPP\Win32\Cellcore\..

For example the SMS\HelloSMS code can be used for sending and receiving SMS messages, this uses the SmsOpen and SmsSendMessage functions which are identical between CE6.0 and Windows Mobile.

There are many code examples in here which certainly helped me out with the TAPI system for setting up voice calls for outgoing and incoming calls.

I was wondering if as a Platform Builder developer for WinCE 5.0 I can add the RIL to the OS through a Microsoft patch. 6 months ago I saw somewhere that I could add RIL to CE 5.0 but I cannot find this anywhere. I'm not using WM 5.0 it is CE 5.0.

Hi Gil,

Sorry I've not heard anything about this.

Normally microsoft only patch bug fixes in older versions of the OS, new features are included using feature packs.

There is always a lot of confusion about CE5.0 and WM5.0 so what you probably saw was someone talking about CE5.0 when they actually meant WM5.0.
