    Hi guys, I cannot get my touchpad and pre 3 to share sms? I can get the calls to go through the touchpad but not the texts. The option to share sms is on the phone but not there on the touchpad. I hope this is still available to do as it was one of the many reasons I bought a pre 3 to go with my pad? Thanks, Nigel.

    I am able both to get calls and sms through my TP. I don't think it influences, but both are using the same webOS account.

    All the settings in the Bluetooth preferences are on both devices... So it should work

    I have this problem too...not sure what the problem is. Bluetooth preferences are on on both devices =/ are there any other setup options that should have been chosen?

    i sometimes encounter this problem. I have paired my touchpad and pre3 and can get sms and calls from my pre3 to my tp. There are instances where i need to re-pair them to get the sms or turn off and on the bt in my tp.

    There are 3 toggles within the Bluetooth options on the pre 3 1. Auto connect 2. Mirror phone calls 3. Mirror sms On the touchpad, I only have the first 2 options, the mirror sms option is not there. Now I have to assume this is the problem. I am running 3.0.4. I have a feeling the update to 3.0.4 has taken away the option to share sms, although I can not be sure about this as I did not have my pre 3 when I was running 3.0.2! This is quite frustrating considering it was one of the advertised benefits of getting a pre 3 and a touchpad. Is there anyway to wind back to 3.0.2, or a patch to bring the sms share option back?

    This is really Pre3 specific... I have had no such problem, make sure when you touch the devices together that you confirm any actions on either device...
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    do you have to physically touch them together then?

    That is how I have always done it, touch Pre3 to the TP button area... you should see a notification on one or both devices to connect/share

    Basically the HP logo to the button.... you should then see a "ripple" on the TP then some confirmation on one or the other device.

    Ok thanks, tried to touch the devices , they do connect together but when I try to send a txt from the touchpad it flashes up a message saying a phone needs to be connected to send a message. It then takes me to the Bluetooth page, which Clearly shows that the phone is already connected! Can't work it out..

    Try deleting the devices in the bluetooth menu and then re-add them on both TP and Pre3.

    after you got it to work, which i do, did u get the 3rd option on the touvh pad, under the pre3 info for "Mirror SmS"? And also, when recieving a text on ur pre3, do u get a notification on the touchpad? I am not. If i dont check or hear the notification from my phone., i wouldnt know i recieved a msg.
