I wish to send weekly sms to my clients ( about 1,200 ). My GSM service provider has allowed me a special package for bulk sms at low rates. Therefore cost of sending sms is of no importance.
Earlier I had Nokia 9500, and I could select all the contacts by CTRL-A, and send sms to all of them at once.
Now I have switched to Imate Jamin, and in it I am not able to  select all the contacts by CTRL-A, rather I have to select each contact manually.
Please advise that is there any software, which I can install in my laptop, connect Imate to laptop through cable / BT, prepare sms message and send to all contacts in one go ?

Please advise

Regards.

Hello,
I have been using Jeyo Mobile Extender which DOES NOT allow me ctrl+a or even highlight all contacts at once. The only way to send multiple contacts is to click each one. I like extender as it is embedded in Outlook so for me it works well.

I do note they also produce Jeyo Mobile Companion which might do what you want.

www.jeyo.com have free trial, it might do what you're after.

HTH and welcome to Geekzone

On Jeyo aren't you able to use Click on the first contact and SHIFT-CLICK on the last contact to select all in between?

Nope, cant find anyway to select multiple recipients with Jeyo Extender.

Hi,
I have downloaded trial versions of both Jeyo Mobile Extender as well as Mobile Companion.
Both are cool software, but in both I am not able to select all the contacts at once.
I have tried  number of key combinations, but without any success.
Any more ideas will be welcomed.
Regards.

Have you tried Pocket Controller-Professional from SOTI? Can't remember if you can select multiple contacts, but worth a look.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Oh well at least I know Jeyo cant do it.
In the absence of something better I have been playing around with Jeyo and have come up with a lame workaround.

In a word file store all your contacts, (1,200 might be a big ask), in a file using this format.

0271234577; 0277894561; 0272345678; etc

Then copy and paste into text number field. Not sure if it will work with the number of contacts you work with but I tested it successfully with my *ahem* three

Good luck with your search

What I fail to understand is that CTRL-A is a standard hotkey for windows, then why has Microsoft not allowed it in their Pocket PC versions ?
I am still searching for an alternative, but it seems I will have to revert back to Nokia 9500 if all of my searches fail.
