Cell phone to serial port cables, etc.

Seth's question got me wondering about cell phone to serial port cables
cables. There's a "Web Connection Kit" available for my PCS phone, but:

- the software is, of course, Windoze-only, and

- it's $200 for a cable and the software! 

What I'd like, of course, is just a cable (which ought to cost <$20) and
the appropriate specifications WRT protocol between the serial port and
the phone.

My specific phone is a Samsung SCH-3500, but clearly it would be nice
to find a general repository of information about cell phone cables and
protocols. The Samsung web site is, of course, useless.

SO - does anyone know of a source for information about cables and
protocols for PCS phones?
