The problem is that I don't know where the problem is - it's entirely
possible that the cable is fine, and either the serial port or the phone
is at fault.  I'd rather not buy a "quite expensive" cable if the one I
have is actually fine!

I was thinking that if I could bring the phone and cable over, we could
try swapping various bits just to isolate the problem.  The phone and
cable are still under warranty, while the computer isn't, but I don't
know which component is causing the problem.

Nice to narrow down one more possible avaenue of error!
