    well i have read a lot of threads here with people asking how to get sms in the playbook. the phone remote app works but only on wifi and i hear it a bit slow. well say a men brothers and sisters, SMS bridge in the phone app world has come to answer your prayers. simply install on your BB phone, use BB bridge to connect to your playbook and boom baby, sms on your amazing playbook.

    check it out and your life can be as complete as mine

    i know it has been mentioned in a few threads but i have seen a lot of people asking so i felt this new thread was deserved. be cool all.

    just add @bb.sms to the number when composing. all good. also read above to add that to all addresses in your book at once.

    I love sms bridge on the PlayBook, it may not be as good as a dedicated sms app, but I'm not complaining one bit. I use imessage on the iPad2 (wifi version), and it's also great but you need a wifi connection. I'm not sure how it works with the 3g version of the ipad, but if you go with that setup you need to pay extra data for that. With my Bold 9900 bridged with my PlayBook, I can text anywhere with no extra data charges.

    From your phone, go to App World and do a search for the App you want.

    If it is available for your particular phone, it will allow you to download it. Also read the summary in the App for more information.

    Hope this helps!

    How well does this app work with the new Bold (just got a newer BB at Christmas and a PB in November 2011) . I have fringe cell reception where I live but have great wireless and have my own network in my house which works great for BBM and other net based stuff like surfing.

    Inquiring minds want to know, as not all my friends have BBM..I know...they are not enlightened yet.

    I love the concept but it does seem a bit pricey at $3.99. But its the only way to get it done so I may have to bite the bullet. Instant buy at $0.99 or maybe even $1.99.

    It they are in your contact book you can. You can also just ad the prefix they use to a cell phone number.

    I have used this app for sometime, while not as nice as a native function it does get the job done and done well.

    Yes it work if you understand it.

    And the price is probably less than you spent on lunch.

    I just paid for and installed this. I happened to be in the midst of texting my daughter-in-law ... and it works a treat!

    I didn't think that $3.99 is too high. Even if I replace it next month ... I'll still have had my money's worth. Given that my son and daughter-in-law both have iPhones, this is the easiest way to communicate with them short of actually calling them.

    Thanks CanadianThomas ...

    I also paid for it & downloaded it. I had to restart (read: battery pull) my Torch 9800 3 times before the reply feature would work. But it finally did and now is working quite nicely. Unfortunately, for some reason, each day since I installed it, it has "resent" to me 50 of the oldest text messages in my Torch's text message inbox. The same messages, 4 days in a row, now. And yes I installed the "sms bridge" update, batt. pull etc... And yes I did report the bug and the guy replied to say he doesn't know why it is doing this.
