SMS2Desk for BlackBerry: Free App Lets You Forward & Reply to SMS From Your PC

smsdesk Cortado just released a free application that automatically forwards all the text messages you get on your BlackBerry to your email address. This is great to backup your SMS as it comes in or just to be alerted by email on your desktop when you get SMS. You can also reply to the email and it will be sent out as SMS. Not sure how that last part works, but it’s worth a shot.

They also have a premium version for 4.98 EUR that gives you a few more features. It lets you send multiple SMS in one email and lets you forward to another email account. It also lets you limit the number of messages sent so as to keep costs down and also gives you a confirmation by email when the message is sent.

You can pick up the desktop download at this link or install it OTA at: www.cortado.com/s2d

From the description:

Overview

  • Organize your text messages as efficiently as your e-mails
  • Integrate your SMS communication into Microsoft Outlook, IBM Lotus Notes, GroupWise, or any other e-mail program

Benefits
When working with your e-mail program on a desktop computer, the BlackBerry often stays in your briefcase or pocket. Incoming text messages are frequently answered too late or not at all. With SMS2Desk you’ll never miss a text message again! And you can use SMS2Desk to answer text messages directly from your e-mail program on your computer. Your text messages will also be securely saved and archived so that you can access them at a later time.

  1. This is really super! I don’t use TXT on my BlackBerry at all, because most of my contacts I can reach through BBMsgr or GTalk. When occatioinally someone sends me a txt it is just so annoying. Why have a data plan if you have to send “data” outside of it?

  2. It doesn’t work for me, I’m a 8300 Curve running 4.5 OS, I can never get it to show “Enabled”. When I try to escape from the program it asks if I was to enable it and if I say “Yes” it just sits there and never gets enabled. The only way I can exit the program is to say “No” when it asks if I want it enabled.

  3. Same problem as Old Geek. I have a Verizon 8800 and when I try to enable it won’t and I have to say No to get out of the program. Also, in the settings, I tried to change the default email address, but said it was a Premium service – when I click on Buy, I get an error message, and there is nothing on the website that says I can upgrade or buy. Am deleting off my BB until newer version comes out. Too bad as I was excited to use!!

  4. I too am sorely disappointed. I had the same problem as oldgeek and I have a Bold. I am going to delete.

  5. The only thing that I don’t like about this application is that, not only do you get the text forwarded to your email address, it also comes to your blackberry so you get the same message on your blackberry twice and the same thing happens when you respond to the text. It doesn’t make any sense to force the blackberry user to use the same email address as the one linked to his/her blackberry. I’d like to have my texts forwarded to my work email that is not linked to my blackberry but I’m unable to do that because of the fact that my work email is not linked to my blackberry. Therefore, I chose to delete also because there were just too many messages coming my way to keep track of. Will come back to forum occassionally though to check out whether or not a newer version has been published.
