send a SMS but NOT from/via the phone - how?

hi guys,

With O2 I was able to send SMS via their website. I would log into my account @ O2 website and there was a feature, simple thing, where I could send text message to other mobile numbers.

Do we get something like it from Virgin?

many thanks, L.

You can use Your Phone to send texts from your PC if it's paired with your mobile phone. It came with a recent Windows 10 update.

uktigger - I am not that sure what you mean...

Have you made sure that caller display is working? - your phone will display the number that is calling you..

make sure that no 'spam stoppers' are active to get that error message..  withhold your number and see if you get message about that..

how do you pair with a PC?? doesn't that need blue tooth, that most desktop PCs not have??

Apple computers have many ways to do SMS, BUT if you only have windows 7 or below, and android, there is another way..

AIRDROID will enable you to look into your phone, on **any** web browser on any computer.. you can even use the camera!

Nothing to do with bluetooth, you install a companion app on your phone and when you're prompted to sign in to the companion app, you have to use the same Microsoft account that you're using on your PC. I've tested it and it works well, really useful for using the keyboard of my Windows 10 PC to send SMSs and to view them on my PC's monitor.
