How to send sms' from your pc via your mobile?

Found 5th Jun 2008
I have found the microsoft software to send sms' from your pc via your mobile, the problem being it only works on XP and I am running Vista. Does anyone know of a program that does the same feature on Vista?

It's free (I think :oops:)but obviously uses up minutes/texts on your phone.

If you have a sony erricson, get myphone explorer found here ]http//ww…en/ It can let you send texts when your phone is connected by cable or bluetooth, plus you can back up all your sms, and all your numbers and settings, and install java games etc

not being funny have you tried the compatblity (install it on vista and put it in windows xp compat)

Not really answering your Q but might be useful to some: If you have an account with a SIP provider like VoipCheap.com you can send SMS and have it show up as your number so people can reply directly.

Yeah - first thing I tried and straight away it claims that it was designed to "run on XP systems and later." I am not so sure, although maybe it is proof that Vista is a downgrade from XP....

I could do but it wouldn't say it was me and it is generally not as "slick." ;-)

tried installing in compatblity for windows 2000 and run in compat for win 2000.... it worked for one program of mine but it might be more of a fluke chance than anything

Locate the EXE file for the software and right click on it and select properties, then compatibility, then select run in xp SP2 compatible mode.

If you use the link in post two it will prompt you to install the Windows genuine advatange validation plug-in before you download, if you use this link ]Microsoft SMS for Jack Sparrows it will take you to the same download bypassing the need to prove your windows is genuine, just sayin it may benefit some :thumbsup:
