    Is it possible use openssh and send an SMS whilst in there ? I know the iphone use MobileSMS.app to send its messages.

    It would be cool to just use a full sized qwerty keyboard to send SMS messages.

    So, nobody know how to use the mobileSMS.app through OpenSSH ?
    Would be great to just login and send a text without using that fiddly virtual keyboard.

    You mean, sitting at your computer? There are plenty of websites that let you send SMS's free - try using Google for "send SMS"

    Yeah but most are capped at around 10 SMS per day. Or have huge adverts in the text.

    I may as well kill these 600 SMS messages we get for free with the help of my PC keyboard when I am in the house :D :apple:

    dang, P2K tools I believe (for basic motorola phones) lets you just connect to your phone THEN just use your computer as a TXT sender.
    I don't know if there is one for the iPhone but its not that complicated. I am sure its possible.

    Something came out last week called "sendSMS" in cydia that lets you sendSMS messages using ssh which is a text based program.

    I installed it just hangs when it sends the message. Anyone got it working ?
