    so i am a new user and i trialed the 300sms app
    great that it enables send on the treo 300 but it really does not do what in need
    all I want to do with sms/shortmail is be given the ability to reply directly to any incoming txt messages
    currently the only way this has been possible
    a) the sms comes from a cell phone
    b) I configure the contact adress in such a way the it reconizes the caller I'd- I have very little sucess with doing this

    as I have over 1300 contacts that I have no desire to recofigure I was hoping there is a simple solution
    I don't need caller I'd just need the ability to respond

    I managed to get sprint to agree to pay $20 for sms "update" just hoping that an alternate piece of sofware exists
    thanks much in advance
    this geek phone is the dogs bollox!!!

    Why not eMail or IM?

    IM will not work for me as the people who are sending me the messages are inside a firewall or using 2 way text pages

    email sort of would work but that would mean using a personal account as I can not get to my work email - again coz of the firewall

    Are Handspring/sprint going to work on a native solution for Treo 300 anytime

    If not I will pay for Treo300 SMS but not that exicited about it- If I thought there is a upgrade on the way then I woudl be happier about shelling out the cash now

    Maybe I am being naive but it would seem responding directly to a recieved sms can not be to difficult

    What problem are you having with replying to SMS directly. I do it all the time, from different network senders.

    details
    if I recieve a sms from 12345678@airmessage.net (this is a two way text pager carried by ameritec)
    the only options that pop up are ok or delete upon recipt
    if I click on the message no option to reply is offered and no caller I'd is present

    I have received sms from a cell phone (att I think) and when these come in it gives 4 options reply del ok an something else call I think

    all my work colleges use two way pagers so I need to be able to reply to messages fast- now I can manually look up their adress assuming I recognize who it is from and make a new sms but this slow and inconvenient

    as I said in an early post not having caller I'd is not the problem - I can get round this by reconfiguring my adress book but even when caller I'd is recognized I still do not get option to reply

    so that's my dilema hope someone can help personal email is not an option I want to use and coporate email is also not possible

    a long shot it would have anything to do with version of firmware or prl as I am not running the latest?

    Now I understand. To the best of my knowledge, SMS programs don't usually have a reply feature when the source isn't a phone number. You can, however send from Treo300SMS to an e-mail address. It wouldn't be through the reply feature, but it can certainly be done.
