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.
- Conveniently send and receive text messages on your PC or laptop through your e-mail program
- Reply to text messages directly from your e-mail program
- 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
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.
