If you have been working on the PC, it becomes quit difficult for you to chat with someone on your mobile or check your mobile for text messages. This trick will make your work easier but all you need is an Android phone. Previously I had written about how to turn on your PC from your Android phone, and now I will show you how to forward text messages from phone to PC and also reply to text messages using your PC. The message you send from your PC will be delivered to the other end with your own number in the sender ID. So you don’t need to worry if the SMS you send will be sent from an unusual number or name.
DeskSMS is a wonderful free Android application which lets you forward texts to your PC. You will have to stay online on an IM service like Google Talk or even Gmail. You can also receive text messages in your browser if you install the Add-On for Firefox/Extension for Chrome.
