TexTab apparently needs to be installed on both the phone and tablet - so you'd need an Android phone. https://market.android.com/details?i...howettl.textab
I read on a Transformer review once that someone had connected their transformer to their phone in order to reeive text messages on their tablet. They claimed to use this to stealthily text in class without actually having a phone out .
Does anyone knowi f this is possible and if so how do I do it? Would tethering allow someting like this??
FYi I'm using a jailbroken iPhone 3gs. I very well might be buying the new samsung galaxy s 2 when it hits AT&T next week so feel free to tailor your answer to either iphones or android phones.
Thanks in advance!
It can be done with a Jailbroken 3GS. Buzzman got this worked out. Let me see if I can find the thread.
EDIT: Jackpot! Here you go: http://www.transformerforums.com/for...sms-app-2.html
the easiest way is to used google voice on both yourphone and transfprormer. Have google give you a number to use. That's it. you can use google voice on both devices.
Here's another option which requires an Android phone. Unlike TexTab which uses a BT connection, this program uses Dropbox as an intermediary meaning you'll need Internet access on both devices.
If you decide to go the Android phone route I would really recommend a fairly new released App called "Tablet Talk". It was developed and beta tested over on the XDA forums and has recently been published on the Android Market. Besides being optimized for use with a Tablet, it can connect to your phone through either Bluetooth or you home wireless network. I have really been giving it a workout with my Son during the recently started football season. It's just like he is in the room!
I posted information in the Apps portion of this forum earlier but it is already several pages in. You can see the post HERE.
I have a motorola photon and it came wiht an app called Phone Portal that alows me to connect to my tablet via wifi and send /recv text messages and edit files, check email and whatnot
Here's another application that I've had great success with. You can route your SMS messages to Google Talk, Gmail, or a web-based application.
