Windows Mobile 6 SDK comes with a real kool tool called “Cellular Emulator”.Check it out if havent already.It lets you simulate a 2G and 3G network on an emulator.You can also send sms from cellular emulator to wm6 device emulator and vice versa. It also supports making phone calls,making it realy helpful tool when you are developing application which would use these features.Eg. An application to intercept incoming call notifications or SMS notifications.

It is realy easy to setup also.

  1. Run Cellular Emulator on desktop PC. Check the status bar for the COM port. eg. it displayes COM3 in mine.
  2. Run the Windows Mobile 6 emulator.
