    I looked and looked but can't seem to find an app that'll send an auto-reply to the SMS sender via SMS.

    My personal phone is a Treo and most of my contacts SMS me on it. But I was recently given a BB from work. I've forwarded all voice calls to the Treo to the BB but I can't forward SMS messages. Since I'm planning to keep my Treo and the personal number, I'd like an app to send an auto-reply to the sender to SMS me at the BB number.

    Is there anything like this available?

    Thx.

    The fact that a utility of this type is not available means that it has no market. Either that or it is so specialised that developers don't find it viable.

    If you fowarded sms, wouldn't you be paying twice for the message?
    once to send it to the treo, a response to the sender, then to send it to the BB.
    Actually thats three.

    All the carriers are pushing subscribers to an unlimited plan so this should be of less concern in the long run.

    thanks for the lesson in marketing 101. :-)

    but there's enough crap apps out there for which I'd bet there's very little market for. so hopefully, some saavy dev guy in their spare time can tinker and put one together.

    dpark,

    Ever find an app to do this? I don't need to forward to my own number, just an auto response to whoever sent me the SMS.

    Working on getting one built. I'll get back to you as soon as it's done. Do you have CDMA or GSM treo?

    I think its great. What if you are in a meeting? Your phone sits on your desk, constantly alerting coworkers you have messages. Instead of having an angry wife you let her know that you are in a meeting and will get back to her when you can. I think there is a market for this.

    I would love this application... more of a small window that has a status option.

    I have a GSM Treo 680 if you need beta testers! T-Mobile and AT&T!

    thats different, I have a Treo 680 and it has it built in.

    I was refering to something like that that is a standalone application, and will automatically respond to all calls and txts with whatever you have set.

    think AIM away message but for calls and txts...
