    [Tip] Texting from your Kindle

    So if you have rooted your phone here is a little tip that you can use that allows you to send and received text messages on your Kindle.

    You can get software called DESKSMS or I am sure there are other types. Forward the messages to GTalk, Gmail or it's web extension. Then installed GTalk on your Kindle or open up the web interface for DeskSMS and your good to go.

    I have found that GTalk works the best for me and I really have enjoyed using it this way. The kindle gets much better batter life than my Evo and this allows me to plug my phone in when I get home and then not worry about where it is while I am reading during the evening or when I am in bed.

    Just a helpful tip

    -Eric

    What I did for my Wifi only Tab was put TEXT+ on it and Pass It Forward on my phone. Over time I just started using Text+ on both because it syncs conversations between devices. Very nice feature.

    Never knew about IM+ and Gtalk... as for will DeskSMS work on older phones I think so but you would have to check the minimum requirements on the software to see if yours is covered.

    Does the person receiving the text have to have the same app as the sender
