I'm trying to send sms's from my PC, via my cell phone (Sony Ericsson K800i).
I've tried using a lot of software, incl MS Windows HyperTerminal, and the K800i software that came with my phone, but none seems to work...
The K800i Software it seems you can type a MMS message, and save it to the phone to send it later, but what's the point?
In HyperTerminal, using the AT+CMGF=? gives me a (0) return, which as i understand only supports PDU mode according to http://www.developershome.com/sms/howToSendSMSFromPC.asp, and not text mode as that is prob what i want?

I thought it could be because I used a bluetooth connection, and tried it with the USB cable, but still nothing.
Now I recon my K800i prob doesn't support this?

My preffered connection type 2 my cell is bluetooth, so that said, does anyone know of a way to do this???

Quick comment : I got it working with windows SMS Sender, but with my USB cable. I couldn't get it to work with a bluetooth connection and don't really want to use the cable... :(

Any suggestions?

Just to double check, is the BT connection properly paired? Can you see what facilities the phone can share over BT (I believe serial is a requirement).

Kobz46,

You would have to check with the phone compatibility to use the bluetooth as a modem/carrier. I'm using the Motorola E680 and it has various mode for connectivity. (Modem, Mass Storage, USB) maybe tweaking around with both the phone settings might help. AFAIK phone to PC sync are all through the provided usb cable, so if you manage to do BT, do bump the steps into this thread please.

Try the freeware MyPhoneExplorer (http://www.fjsoft.at/en/). You can send SMS from the PC by connecting your phone via USB or Bluetooth. Note: Works only on Sony Ericsson phones
