    Help please. I want to use my PC keyboard to send texts via the HTC Desire. It works so simple with Nokia and especially Sony Ericssons - they have suites that offer this facility. Anyome know of a good, reliable bit of software (preferably free) that works? I have asked HTC but they don't offer this.

    There are a few apps that help to do this. One simple app is called Remote Web Desktop. It is free in Market. Install on the phone, connect the phone to your network wireless, then open a browser on PC, type the address, connect and you are good to go.

    MyPhoneExplorer is the best option I have used. Does more than allow you to send sms from PC. You need to install it on PC as well as get the app from the market. Also allows you to take screen shots btw.

    okay, first try going to menu/settings/applications/development and make sure USB debugging is ticked [and USB debugging notify if you like]. Try again.

    You may find it plays up a little from time to time [not too much]. What I tend to do is turn it off on the PC once I have finished the sms and then if I get another one simply start it up again. If you think you will be sending lots of replies keep it running until conversation ends and then switch it off on PC again. You may want to just leave it on all the time and see how it goes for you, but if it does play up use my suggestion. You may need to go into the settings on the phone app to see what contact list and calendar it syncs with.
