    I was wondering if there was an app out there that would let you reply to txt msg on your computer while your phone is plugged in. Before I rooted my phone and was using a tether app...the name escapes me......anyways it had like an im popup window that would allow you to answer incoming msgs. I really like this function because I hate having to stop what im doing and make the transition from fullsize keyboard to droid keyboard. If anyone knows of an app or something of the like I would love to know about it. Thanks a ton guys!!

    You can text through google even if your phone isnt connected (send SMS messages).

    GV isn't internet IM. You can send and receive SMS via the GV site.

    That's exactly what I just said, so you are agreeing with me but you used the word "isn't" instead of the word "is"

    thanks mate.
