I have a nokia 6255 connecting to my computer using bluetooth and for some reason i cannot send SMS from my computer through it.

Any ideas?

The 6255 (and CDMA phones in general) do not support this feature.

You can use Skype (but its 26c per SMS), or Telecoms eTxt product ($99 setup and $10 monthly, then 10c+gst to Telecom mobiles or 17c+gst to 021/029)

Telecom etxt has free setsup and 3 free months acess.

see http://www.telecom.co.nz/content/0,8748,201882-201461,00.html for more details

How much?

Get eTXT™ FREE* for 3 months - NO set up fee, NO monthly access, NO usage charges

If you're a Telecom 027 postpaid business customer you can get eTXT™ free* for 3 Months. Sign up for eTXT™ before 30 June 2006, and get FREE setup (usually $99 +GST), FREE monthly access, and FREE usage for 3 months.

After 3 months, the following charges will apply (all prices exclusive of GST):

  • Monthly Access fee of $10 per account.
  • 10c per message sent to each Telecom Mobile.
  • 17c per message sent to 021 and 029 handsets
  • If you send a group message from your Telecom mobile phone to shortcode 222 you will incur a charge of 17c plus the applicable charge per mobile you send to.

eTXT™ charges will be billed to your mobile account, so eTXT™ can only be purchased if you have a Telecom postpaid. There is no expensive software to purchase or difficult technical skills to master.

eTXT™ messages, by default, will bill to the primary mobile number that you nominate when registering for eTXT™.
