There's no way to do this in the core/standard API libraries. However, there are "optional" libraries that might be useful to you, especially the Communications API. You'll have to download it from here and install it.

Thanks for the help. I think even in that case i would have to used signed certificates and download it to client computers. so i think it will be easier and more feasible to just download the file to the client computer and than they can use the mobile utility to write it to phone.
Thanks and Regards
