Send/receive text messages from Outlook

In WIndows Mobile 6.5, with Exchange 2010, we could send/receive text messages directly from Outlook on our computer. Bring back pls! http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/send-and-receive-text-messages-sms-HA101823438.aspx

        Please as this is the only thing that I don't like about my windows phone

        YES!! The only reason I haven't switched to Win Phone is this. I can't use stupid touch keyboards worth a darn.

        I found out recently that most US-based carriers have email-to-SMS support. For example, if you wanted to text an AT&T customer from Outlook, use the format "1234567890[AT]txt.att.net" (no quotes, [AT] = @, 1234567890 is a stand-in for the phone number).

        Dear Sir, Please provide the facility nokia ovi software for nokia lumia. It is very useful.

        Ditto! I recently switched from Android to WP, finding everything I really need in the WP store, with one glaring exception: MightyText (or something equivalent). I use a PC and tablets much more than my phone, and love conversing in a text conversation from a large screen.

        Hi. So this another reason to make me confident there is one real business oriented phone - BlackBerry. Especially after recent Blend release. However I really thought Microsoft will well compete having own operating system for decades. So Nokia heritage vanishing, WP 8.1 still lacking core (from my point of view) futures. This against ios or Android - I know market votes. But it's hard to find out why. I am scrapping my lumia

        Not just SMS sending from Outlook, I should be able to send SMS from my PC by default. Otherwise what sort of integration are we talking about. Windows Phone should be FULLY accessible from a Windows PC including the dialer, messages, contacts, settings, home screen to say the least. Its a pity to see we cannot send an SMS from a PC in 2014! I wonder what MS Phone developers do whole day?

        It's a shame we can't use something like MightyText because of an API which doesn't allow it ..

      • RuiuRRuiuR commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes, we should be able to send/receive text messages from Outlook, outlook.com and Exchange Online...

        We need more sharing of features between OS' (WinPhone & Win8.1) and form factors. MS owns both - integrate.

      • Alex MAlex M commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Linked OSX and iOS devices allow the user to send and receive text messages on either device.

        MightyText is the killer app. People who use it swear by it and won't change phones if they have to give it up. I had a Windows phone and switched back to Android for the lack of only two apps: Chrome and MightyText. I might be able to live with Internet Explorer, but not without MightyText!

        Android and iOS have this via Touchdown.
        Windows Phone 8 is coming along well but it still has the worst Microsoft Exchange support of any platform.
