The lensed blazar PKS1830-211 is a unique source in several aspects. It is very bright, even at sub-mm wavelenghts: the lens geometry is very well known, there is a strong molecular absorption from the lensing galaxy, and the lensed blazar is active in gamma rays. All these ingredients make this source extremely useful for the study of very different problems in Physics and Astronomy. I'll summarize the main results obtained by our group on the analysis of spectral-line and continuum mm/submm observations of PKS1830-211, using the SMA and ALMA, and will discuss on our future ALMA/VLBI projects.
