    Texting App?

    I'm a little confused? I have handcent on my phone for texting and I figure it would be available for the Tablet via wifi sending. When I search I see all the add-ons and packs, but I do not find the main program. I'm assuming it is not available yet which makes no sense since the addons are there.

    If that is not available what is a good alternative?

    does your tablet have a 3g or similar plan? SMS requires something along those lines. You can take a look at Google Voice, which can be configured to allow you to SMS from your tablet if you do not have an associated phone number for the tablet.

    No 3G plan, just a wifi tablet. I thought SMS was good for wifi since when I am home my phone runs on wifi and I can send and receive text then. My guess is that it is still using the 3G even though it does not show while it shows the wifi signal. I have ebuddy which works great for social apps (Yahoo Messenger, AIM, etc..), but I figured since all my contacts are in my contact directory it would have been nice to have a texting option there.

    yes unfortunately SMS is a cellular-based protocol. Google Voice basically allows you to do SMSoIP (for lack of a better description). Google Voice should pick up all the contacts in your tablet though, just like a phone would.

    This discussion has created a mystery for me. If 3G is required for texting, why is it that I can send text to my friends phone from my wireless laptop by sending an email to his 10 digit phone number @txt.att.net ? Also, if he texts a reply, his reply pops up in my email. You only have to know the carrier used by the other party. The codes for some other carriers are:

    Sprint phonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com
    Verizon phonenumber@vtext.com
    T-Mobile phonenumber@tmomail.net

    That app drives me nuts. It syncs every single text from the week to your tablet. Yes its usefull, yes it works, yes its annoying.
    Gold text plus is what I reccomend.

    Not sure if I have SyncSMS setup correctly between my phone and my tablet. Running Sapphire 2.2 on my D1 and Dropbox is installed, everything seems like it is setup correctly, but no text are coming in to the tablet, and if they do get out it is an hour or so later. I have the sync set for 5 minutes, so not sure what is going on.

    EDIT:
    Making progress with the Pushing feature. can send text from tablet and it gets to my wifes phone in no time. Her reply made it to the phone, but no go on the Tablet. Sync setting set for every 2 hours.

    put sync setting as fast as possible. Its an app designed for you to let your phone set on the charger in the other room while your on your tablet.
    You need a drop box account, no need for installation I believe. The sync app needs installed, signed in and running on both devices and the tablet on a wifi connection. If you have your sync settings put on 2hrs. Every 2 hours its going to sync with your providers messaging storage on your phone.
