    Any developers here?

    I am. I want to develop an application that uses the text messaging on the phone. I want to use my computer to send and recieve text messages from and to the phone without tapping the cellular minutes.

    Yahoo works fine, but for that I need to be constantly connected to the internet, which means unlimited data for a cell phone.

    Anyone have any ideas or resources to help me please? thanks.

    There are lots of developers here.
    Well, you do not always need to be connected to the internet to use yahoo messaging. You could make your program get online as it sends messages then offline when its finished, another idea is to queue messages and have it check to see if you have any messages waiting to be sent and send them every 5 minutes

      owenjh,

      Thanks for the response. I guess what I'm looking to do, is use the pre-existing text messaging pipeline on the phone itself to send and recieve text data. This system doesnt require much in terms of extra service, as most subscribers offer unlimited texting for a very small fee.

      I dont have any experience working with grps data service so I dont know whats involved. I know I want my application to freely send and receive text data using a wireless cellular / digital network.

        I used to be able to send SMS through my nokia 7110 and then 8310 when it was connected to my PC using their software and also a few different types of thrid party software. So its definately possible, at least with nokias, and there are probably details out there of how it can be done if you google...

          Well, I know that there are some SDK's for certain Nokia Phones avaliable (Google!), maybe you could try one of those to "hack" into the phone and use the API to send txt messages.
          Third party software would probably be the easiest.
          Just find the normal way you would send a message, run the software as a hidden service, and use window handles to send messages.
