It's very easy to google for it. Different service providers have different internet gates for that. But it usually works. For example I configured my bank account to send real-time info about my transaction. It's very convenient. You can although get issues with the non-English alphabets, I guess it depends on the service provider as well. Try in google - "send sms to mobile phone from Internet"

Re: SMS by PC

If I understand you correctly, you're trying to write a SMS in your PC via application (like Nokia PC Suite) and want to send it from your BlackBerry by connecting  it through USB cable. I'm sorry to say there is no such option on BlackBerry.

He can send it to himself using the gate and then combine/forward it to somebody else. Or just send directly to someone using the gates mentioned above in this thread.

Hi dshaz,

 

If I'm not wrong...The user wants to send SMS from from WEB as if the SMS is sent from his BlackBerry. There are two menthods -One, most operator have such service called WEB SMS where you can login to a particular site (provided by Opetator) and send SMS. Here charges will be deducted from the users account and receiver of the sms will see it as SMS from senders mobile. Second, connecting handset though a desktop application (here dekstop manager), type and send from that apps will send the sms from the device...likewise Nokia PC Suite does for Nokia phones.

Re: SMS by PC

I'd agree except one point. I don't login to some web site as you pointed above, I just transfered the phone number to the valid email address and I can send a regular email to my own phone or any other phone. Afaik, every mobile service provider has its own gate that can be used for this service. It's free for me as a sender. And I'm not sure if the receiver should pay, probably he needs to pay, I don't know because I have unlimited SMS/MMS messages. My bank accounts are working in the same way, I just programmed them to send me the real-time info. The home voice message system sends me MP3 files to my mobile phone as MMS messages as well. It's very convenient to get these messages just a few seconds after the phone call. I could readdress the phone calls to my mobile, but I don't want to pay for the call, the MMS messages are unlimited and if I need I will just call back. So it works with any email client.

Re: SMS by PC

What I have done in the past is create a note in Microsoft Outlook that contain the message and then save it. They I sync my outlook to my BB. Then I open the note and copy it to a SMS message on the BB and send it.

Long time consuming task, but it does get the job done. Smiley Happy

Re: SMS by PC

T-mobile allows you to send an EMAIL to 1234567890@tmomail.net, where 1234567890 is the area code and phone number of thephone you wish to send the TEXT MESSAGE to.  When you send the email, it's ocnverted to a text message and sent to the phone.  The down side is, the received text message is in the format "senders@email.address / Subject / Message Text" which means after the email address and subject have been included in the text message, there's not much space left for the actual text of the message!
