(since i dont know your name) nice work on your dtmf dialer. I’m doing a project and I want to use dtmf tones to control a helicopter. My phone can play the tones on the homescreen but I need a j2me app that can do that I can use for the heli- Something that’ll play the corresponding tone of any particular key you press momentarily. Similar to your application but instead I’ll use the picture of a keypad as the app background to match the keypad keys. Please is there a way I can edit your application to achieve this? Its the closest app around to what I need. [I have very little knowledge of programming- really, only C because i’m not a software guy (only mechanical things)] Thank you.

I am happy to hear that you use and like it.
It does indeed sound like a small and very useful change. I’m quite busy at the moment but I will look at it as soon as I get some spare time.

By: Eli Sun, 21 Jun 2009 16:07:41 +0000 Hi I wish to thank you for your DTMF Dialer, it’s the best soft ever saving me money since I can call from land line and using my cell phone book, btw I use it on my Nokia E65 – symbian, and the program is on my start panel so I use it very often, I saw the source code of the app but don’t know how to compile it, I wanted a small change: instead of changing “+45” to 0 I need it to remove 08, aka 08####### number would be dialed as #######.
or even better Idea if you can improve it as one of the settings, so the user can define what modifications he want to do with the number. etc…

Thank you very much for your time and effort.

But if you look at the tutorial i link to in the post, it seems there a some known issues with the newer version of Arduino. Since my code is based on that, it might be the same issue. (

If you can get that to work, you can just copy the init sequence from the code, if you need to use the mousewheel.

happy hacking

just trying out your PS-2 mouse hack for Arduino. Very nicely done, but it doesn’t seem to work. I do net get any outputs…
Could you give me some pointers how i can fix it?

Thank you very much :)
