whatever, i posted with a question, simple. is there a way to transfer sms over bluetooth. I dont think I can be any clearer. what else do you need to know? dont respond if you dont got any info of help.
ok then, If it means anything im sorry, It sounded like you only read the title. My mistake. I apologise for it. I did not mean to post ambiguously. I just wanted to find an answer. I did not intend to get all of your case. Or get you worked up.
again im sorry.
anway yeah I dont think the droid can do it, and I dont think there is an app either.

TBH, I have searched far and wide for SMS apps to find the perfect combination of using my phone with variety and whatnot, and I have not heard of an SMS app that does it over BT.
Also, with the limited range of BT, I can see why there is not a lot of interest in it - however, most of the Android developers are very open to suggestions. You might try contacting some of them to see if they have that planned or have thought about it.
2 of the most popular SMS alternate apps are Handcent and ChompSMS, but in searching the new AndroidApplications.com I see lots of SMS2Web, Twitter and Computer apps, so one of those developers may also be able to help.

I'm not sure if this is what are you looking for but you can try it. Go to the market and search for Motospeak by Motorola. When you enable your Bluetooth headset it can read to you the name and the content of a text message every time you get a new text. It even have and auto reply function. The basic version is free. But if you want advanced features you need to buy the pro version.
Thanks ill look at it. But I dont think thats what im looking for. I want to be able to transfer a text message to another device as soon as I get it. Ill continue to search for something every now and then. maybe 2.2 will have it. I dought it, but I can always hope.

Running 2.2 and have not seen an option to do it in there.
I think I am getting confused again - can you describe the exact scenario that you want to use SMS over BT for? To transfer (like forward) to a friend without having to use your SMS on your network, or to save it, say on a BT enabled computer?
Ok. It has to do with my new head unit in my car. Its a kenwood. It has a wide variety of features on it. One is the bluetooth. It can download and display sms on the screen. Dont think I would ever really use it when im driving. But I would like to see it work.
With that info there, you might be able to get a developer more interested in enabling such a feature in their app. Someone out there has to be receptive....
Of course, that also means the phone itself has to support it - I know that the BT capabilities are crippled from the full range of features that are written into the standard BT protocol, but I am not sure if SMS transmittal is specifically blocked or not.
The Motorola Droid - the first ever Verizon Android Phone - exploded onto the mobile market with an incredibly successful ad campaign that brough Android to the masses. With a huge and vibrant touchscreen, solid metal body, full QWERTY keyboard, 5M... Read More
