Why am I blogging about SMS on a healthcare blog? Many don’t realize they can send a text message from your computer to a cell phone, and it can be very helpful at times. When you are on your computer, why stop and and pick up the cell phone to send a quick text message? I see this happen all the time, as many doctor’s offices are relying more on text messaging, I will see the office person working on the PC, then drop everything, stop and pick up a cell phone to text. Sometimes this is ok, but it can be inconvenient too at times.
I used Outlook here as a simple example and you will also have a copy of your message in your “sent” folder too. Also, for those who are not text messaging from cell phones, any PC user can do this. All you need to know is who the wireless carrier is and the cell phone number and off you go. BD
Here are a few examples as to how you can accomplish this quick and easy.

This is free for the receiver of the message?ReplyDelete
Just like any test message service, you need to have a plan with your carrier. That part is still left up to the wireless cell phone vendors, although now it's pretty cheap.ReplyDelete
or you can use the free teleflip.com service. You don't even have to sign up and best of all, you don't have to know the carrier that the recipient is on!ReplyDelete
