Display Cell Caller ID info on Windows via Bluetooth or USB?

Does anyone know of software that will forward my cell phone's incoming Caller ID info to my Windows desktop?

I'm using a MS Smartphone (2003) w/ ActiveSync, but I can't find anything that will give me the functionality I want. Some friends of mine got similar functionality out of some 3rd party bluetooth software (Float's Mobile Agent, I think) but this doesn't seem to agree with my phone. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks!

I've not heard of any such software (as an Orange C500 owner). FMA is only really of use on Sony Ericsson phones. The place to ask would be modaco.com's software forums. I have seen developers there soliciting for application ideas. I'd certainly find this useful.

The standard fax program that came with Windows does it for me. I just plug my phone wire into the modem card and run the fax software. I have it set to manually receive faxes, so the fax machine doesn't pick up unless I click on the notification when the phone rings.

It only gives me the phone number and not the text, but other than that it works fine.

Doh! Cell phone. Nevermind.

Easy! Put your cell phone on the desk, and point your webcam at it... You can then view the cellphone screen from any internet connection.
