I've just been out looking for a cable from the various high street mobile 
phone shops. Four out of the six shops didn't have anything on display, or 
wouldn't talk to me; one had a T610 data cable for 30 quid, which I politely 
turned down; and the Nokia shop said, "F-Bus? What's that?"


Any suggestions on good mail order places to get one?

A PL2303 would be nice; Linux supports it, and there's none of that faffing 
around with serial ports. (Instead you get to faff around with USB ports.
