Text Messages As Instant Messages On Windows Mobile


Ben Hirashima turned a cool idea into a really useful program for Windows Mobile phones. TxtMan lets you send text messages from your PDA or smart phone as though they were instant messages, keeping track of the conversation the same way an IM client does. It disables the regular messaging client and takes its place, making it a hell of a lot easier to sents texts back and forth. I know there are a lot of people who use text messaging more than they make calls, and this could be a real convenience.

Right now it works on these devices with the .NET Compact Framework 2.0 installed:

  • Motorola Q
  • Treo 700w
  • Cingular 8125
  • Verizon XV6700
  • Samsung i320
  • T-Mobile Dash

My T-Mobile MDA is an 8125 in a different outfit, so I’ll test this out on that phone and the T-Mobile SDA to see if it works.
