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?

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.


MyPhoneExplorer the best software i know!! Works really great, its fast and needs no installation. It works via USB, WLAN or bluetooth.

  • Oh, nice, I was using it with my Sony Ericsson, very good program. Didn't know they were now working with android phones.

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.
