    I know you can use a nokia dku-5 cable as a 3.3 volt serial port, but I
    need to get a 5v one. 3.3v one doesn't work into the device.

    Anyone know of any cellphone data cables that use 5v serial signaling?

    Why not just use a regular USB/serial converter?

    because that will be rs232 levels, and I need 5v ttl levels, and a
    converter between the 2 isn't inexpensive like cellphone data leads are.
    All it needs to be is the usb to serial chip with the right pins bought
    out. I possibly could modify a usb to rs232 cable but getting a mobile
    phone cable and chopping off the propriatry connector is easier.

    The above link may be a cheap solution for you.

    Incidentally the horrid USB/RS232 converter I have outputs at 5v TTL
    levels. Unfortunately it has no markings and I have no idea of it's
    origins.
