Text Messaging from your PC


One particular facility which I love about the ‘Nokia PC Suite‘ (v. is ‘Messages‘; a way of working with/managing text messages on your mobile or smartphone but from the luxury of your PC Desktop/laptop.

I don’t know why, I certainly do send text messages from my mobile/smartphone when I’m out and about on the move BUT, do I enjoy the facility of texting from a mobile device? sadly, I’ve got to say “NO!” It’s not as though I don’t practice enough but it amazes me when I see the younger generation at HIGH speed texting from their mobiles.
So… with your mobile/smartphone connected via USB Cable(prefered)/Bluetooth to your PC and connected with Nokia’s PC Suite; launching ‘Messages’, you’ll get a window as above.
CREATING & SENDING A TEXT MESSAGE: Select the icon ‘Create a new message’ (Red No.1), which will then pop up a new message template, enter the recipients name in the ‘To:’ field (No.2), as you type, it will pull-up matches from your contacts list. Then type your text message (on your lovely PC’s keyboard) (No.3) and when complete, send it by selecting the ‘Send message’ icon (No.4).
So, this is a great way of working with text messages on your mobile/smartphone from your PC. At the same time you can manage your mobile/smartphones text messages by reading/deleting/filing 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
