    Simply put, what's hr best soo for mirroring you're texts in you're computer and phone? Either push bullet, or airdroid. What does everyone prefer here? Thank you!

    I use MightyText and so far I'm pleased. It's not perfect, though, but I like it much better than PushBullet (plus, since PB implemented their pay plans, that's even more out of the question).

    The BEST option, however, is to use a Google Voice number for texting. That way you have your texts available in any device with Hangouts or access to Hangouts on the web. Downside? Google Voice texting only works for US/Canada numbers.

    Google Voice is still unavailable in Canada.

    You can't get a Canadian number, but you can text to Canadian phones from Google Voice (with an US number).

    SideSync is what I use. It mimics your phone on your computer screen.

    I tried to use it once ages ago and it didn't work for me. Haven't tried it since, so I can't really say.

    You're welcome!

    AirDroid is okay. I preferred PushBullet until they introduced their payment plan.

    I used to use airdroid, and I loved it, then I stopped using it for some reason.

    I used AirDroid for everything.
    However, now I'm on Project Fi & hangouts, so hangouts.google.com is all I need now, ha.

    So, I just downloaded and started using Push Bullet again, I LOVE IT! It works really well, and when you text from the PC, it auto clears out the phone notifications as well!

    PushBullet with Textra doesn't clear notifications for me. Was there something you had to set up to do that?

    ....And it's a Samsung product, and it allows connectivity through wifi or USB, and you can answer calls while connected, and it allows for file transfers from device to desktop.... :-)

    No you're right it doesn't which is slightly annoying . The other annoying aspect of push bullet is the fact that for free, they only allow you 100 and messages per month before you have to pay monthly for a subscription. Ugh

    What about the PC sync software for respective smartphones...my old Xperia Pro came with compatible with official PC sync app from Sony that allowed me to read and create texts from my PC. Do the major companies still support this feature?

    You know, now that you mention it, when I was still with Verizon, a few years back, my wife used to text me right from her email program on her PC. I'm with AT&T now and I'm not sure if that's still possible!

    I'm not sure if this is what u meant but if u want to send a text to someone via email and they use ATT just send the email to "their number including area code@mms.att.net" they'll receive the message on their phone as a text

    Thank you Steve - that's probably how we used to do it, but I can't remember. She still has a damned flip phone and hardly even uses that so that's why I had set that up for her back then. I'll have to try that!
