Question: if I have my iPhone docked at my computer, is it possible (via some sort of third party app I guess), to type and send sms (and maybe even receive and dial phone calls) directly from my computer? Would be cool to whip up an sms on my keyboard and leave the iphone docked while I'm at the computer....

Answer: Nope sorry. Haven't seen any app like that before. I believe this questions has asked too not too long ago with the same response.

The website says that the iPhone's are not compatible with the program for SMS messaging?

Maybe Google voice, or you can send a text through your email by just adding stuff at the end. For example att is cellnumberhere@text.att.net
