How can I use my PC to send SMS messages from my Blackberry?

I have recently been "upgraded" to a blackberry which I am not at all impressed with.

 

I need to be able to send sms messages using my PC keyboard, as the blackberry keys are far too small for sensible use.

 

I have installed the blackberry desktop software which doesn't appear to offer me any ability to do this, unlike any previous 3g phone I have had (Nokia, Sony Ericsson etc etc).

 

I would also like to be able to access sms messages directly from the home screen. I can get email this way, but I have a laptop which can display emails and attachments much better than the blackberry.

 

Please do not suggest buying a separate keyboard, as I don't want to carry around yet another device and spend money because of a basic design fault

Re: How can I use my PC to send SMS messages from my Blackberry?

Quite honestly, you need to go back to your Nokia.

 

A blutetooth keyboard would be perfect, but since you've ruled that out... so you'd rather carry around your laptop than a small folding keyboard about the size of a thin paperback book? Your choice.

 

Good luck, sorry it isn't working out for you.

Reply to JSanders: I have exactly the same problem. It's not a matter of preferring to "carry around my laptop", it's more that I spend my working life in front of a standard Windows-driven laptop computer. And so, for those 8 hours a day (!) I would rather use my computer's keyboard to drive/control my Blackberry Curve 9360 (Op Sys V7.1) than use the keypad that comes with the Blackberry. [Being a touch-typist with fat fingers, I find using the Blackberry keypad rather limiting.]

 

Given that this topic is 3.5 years old, is there any update ? Ie does an Application for my Windows-7 PC allow me to do what I want ?

Your carrier might have a program for it. My carrier, Rogers, has Rogers One Number which allows me to send SMS from my PC.

Yea, check with Vodafone, they might have an web portal for SMS.

I imagine your fingers are no fatter than mine, lol.  The BlackBerry keyboard is the best in the business.
