    Do any PC applications exist that will allow me to send an SMS through my bluetooth-paired Treo?

    Ideally it'd tie into Palm Desktop so that I could just choose names in my contacts rather than typing in phone numbers...

    Usually you can send SMS via email to phone-number@carrier. For example, 3015551212@cingularwireless.net (or some similar address). Therefore, if you have BT DUN and can send email, and can figure out the email equivalent of your correspondent's cell/sms number, you should be in business.

    That being said, why don't you simply use your excellent Treo to send the SMS? That's nw of the most useful things about having a full keyboard on a phone.

    Cingular <number>@mobile.mycingular.net or <number>@mobile.mycingular.com

    Verizon <number>@vzwpix.com

    Sprint PCS <number>@messaging.sprintpcs.com

    T-Mobile <number>@tmomail.net

    Alltel <number>@alltelmessage.com or <number>@message.alltel.com

    CellularONE <number>@mobile.celloneusa.com

    Green's Communications <number>@pager.schmobile.com

    GTE Wireless <number>@messagealert.com

    Nextel <number>@messaging.nextel.com

    Omnipoint <number>@omnipointpcs.com

    Qwest <number>@qwestmp.com

    SMF/Schuylkill Mobile Fone <number>@pager.schmobile.com

    SouthernLinc <number>@page.southernlinc.com

    Suncom <number>@tms.suncom.com

    The problem with sending via email is that people can't simply reply and have it come back to your phone.

    I was able to send SMS via BT on my old Siemens phone.... even with the keyboard, selecting multiple recipients with a real mouse (ctrl+click) saves significant time. The ability to never take my phone out of my pocket when at my desk is quite convenient.

    you can always just change the setting in the reply to field, so that when ppl reply it goes to your phone.

    I would create an account just for this.

    Exactly, But since I have chatter when people reply I still get them, because it returns to my email. As for the character limit, well...keep it short.

    Thank nm
