    Based on some quick tests, I've noticed the following: if you kill the Google Messaging Service, Chrome to Phone (a.k.a. Send to Phone) will stop working.

    This seems rather obvious, but I had been in the habit of killing the Google Talk Service (GTalk) prior to Froyo. After Froyo, it looks like the service was renamed/replaced with Google Messaging Service.

    I suspect that killing the Google Messaging Service could affect other Google services too.

    As an update, I noticed that under Google Framework Services, a "Cloud to Device Messaging Service" is running too. This service was not running after I installed the Chrome to Phone app (even after several reboots), but it's running now.
