I've been a long-time Nokia fan, but finally succumbed to the Samsung Galaxy S3's amazing screen, & Android's Open community.

One feature I use a lot (about a hundred times a day...) is Nokia PC Suite's ability to send SMS via the phone. It:

  • Uses my phone's contact list.
  • Notifies me when I get an sms.
  • Allows me to send SMS using my PC's keyboard.
  • Essentially turning SMS into just another IM medium I use on the PC.

How will I do this with the Samsung Galaxy S3 + Windows 7?

PS Yes this is a blatant copy/paste of a similar question I asked once about the iPhone I have since abandoned – Dean Rather Jul 16 '12 at 3:22
This is a better question for Android Enthusiasts. Fortunately, it's already been asked and answered there:… – Al E. Jul 18 '12 at 13:27

Use Airdroid. It gives SMS and much more. And it is web based so you don't need to install a client on your machine.

Looks excellent! Will check it out soon! – Dean Rather Jul 16 '12 at 3:32
Remote Web Desktop can also be used for sending and receiving SMS. – Shivaranjan Jul 16 '12 at 7:14
@criziot: Best app ever. – Dean Rather Jul 17 '12 at 3:18
Yeah, best app ever I would say too ! – Gilles Quenot Aug 8 '12 at 19:19
Airdroid is a killer app. Though it's a privacy killer too... – smonff Jun 3 '13 at 19:15

Oh, nice, I was using it with my Sony Ericsson, very good program. Didn't know they were now working with android phones. – Gnoupi Aug 29 '12 at 15:12

you don't need any extra apps or software as Samsung has this already covered. Samsung kies air is capable of doing all this & more using WiFi. It only works for Samsung devices tho. :))

The simplest solution I have found is DeskSMS, by Clockworkmod. I believe it's 4.99$ per year. It allows you to SMS using a Google Chrome extension, or even by email. I haven't tried the Google Chat relay option, I disabled it.

Since it uses the internet, it will work over 3G or any WiFi, not just a home LAN or usb like some other solutions.

Look at my blog given below. I could do it with Samung Galaxy S2, it should work with S3 also.

PiceaHub works fine. Send SMS, drag and drop videos and music to your Android from Youtube etc.
