I can not for the love of god get this feature to work. It always says Sending Failed on the computer, and my Nokia 6275i doesn't even register that it needs to send a message.
Hopefully someone has a fix for this

Why though? I thought it would be as simple as Computer sends text message to cellphone which then sends it to the recipient. No?

In the GSM world it is.

With CDMA however it's not a common feature for handsets have the ability to send SMS messages from a PC via a tethered connection, in part because there is no AT command set for CDMA for doing so. Many USB or external CDMA devices support the AT command set which allows this and also allows you to use many of the GSM gateway applications.
