    Wait so you are receiving SMS on the touchpad? I have yet to see anyone claim that, and I know I couldn't with the Veer when I was testing at Fry's (haven't tried since we got ours).
    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)...

    Yes, you can initiate and received calls from your TouchPad. (I just verified that you can initiate)

    It's the advanced messaging sharing, that (as I understand it) requires a webOS device running version 2.0 or higher in order to share the messages.

    If I'm wrong, I'm going to blame it on not yet having my morning coffee before I answered.
    And you CANNOT receive SMS on your TouchPad. You can IM from it, but those are distinctly different. Have you had your coffee yet?

    Its my understanding that newer protocols 'step down' to older ones, unless a specific protocol is required. And I dont think the Bluetooth Hands-free profile is one of them. HP seems to have limited Bluetooth pairing to webOS phones only. But I could be wrong.

    Thanks, thought I had missed something.

    whoops! my bad, I swear reading in a precentral post that since both calls and sms are handled by bluetooth they will work with any phone.

    Oops.
