Just for anyone who is interested and for the record, the HS-9 headset won't
work and the Cardphone is intelligent enough to figure out that it isn't the
specified HDC-6D headset plugged in, despite the fact that both have 2.5mm

I never got NewtSMS+ going but was able to make outgoing calls using Christian
Fiutak's NokiaCardphone2.0ModemSetup.pkg driver. In the latter case I couldn't
get it to fax: "Communications failure."

So I got my Newtphone but without SMS or fax capability.

  Hi Folks

  A while ago Marcus Hammerschmitt successfully got a Nokia Cardphone to work on
his Newton and then Peter Hoffman confirmed that it was possible to do SMS on it
as well.

  The Nokia Cardphone guide says that it works with a Nokia HDC-6D headset. I
see that it looks like a bog standard mono-aural earbud with a 2.5mm universal
connector. I already have a Nokia HS-9 headset which also has a 2.5mm
connector, but the cardphone is still on its way so I have yet to try it on the

  Has anyone had any experience trying an alternative Nokia headset on the
cardphone? Are Nokia headsets that different from model to model even when they
have the same 2.5mm connector?
