Sending SMS messages in Windows XP

If you have a GSM cell phone with either Bluetooth or Infrared technology and a Windows XP system you can save a lot of key tapping on your phone by using a free Microsoft utility to send SMS messages. First you’ll need to download and install the widget from Microsoft. Make sure your phone is paired (assuming you’re using Bluetooth) with the system and select the appropriate modem for your phone in the SMS utility and start sending messages. More detailed instructions are available from O’Reilly along with instructions for doing something similar on Mac OS X.
