TxtMan


TxtMan is a threaded SMS program for Windows Mobile 5.0+. It sends and receives text messages (SMS) and displays the messages as a conversation, like an instant messenger client.

Attention: ROM updates for the Motorola Q after MOL1 break TxtMan! If you want to use TxtMan on the Q, DO NOT install MOL2 or MOL3. Once installed, the update cannot be uninstalled, and you will no longer be able to run TxtMan. Note that the Sprint Q comes with the equivalent of MOL2 from the factory, so it cannot run TxtMan.

Many have emailed me asking when I'm going to fix TxtMan to work with MOL2/MOL3. Sorry folks, there's nothing I can do about it. It's the OS that's broken, not TxtMan. We will all just have to wait for them to fix it in the next ROM update.

TxtMan has been tested mainly on the Motorola Q, but has been reported to work on these devices:

It may work on other devices. If you're running Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone or Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC Phone Edition, give it a try. If it works, let me know so I can add your device to this list. TxtMan has been reported to work on some devices running Windows Mobile 6.0, but I have yet to do much testing myself.

TxtMan requires the .NET Compact Framework 2.0 to be installed on your phone in order to run. It's free, and many other Windows Mobile programs require it, so it's a good thing to have. To download it, go here.

Tired of seeing that Verizon logo when you're dialing a number? Would you like to see something more useful there? These installers will replace the Verizon logo with a graphic that shows you which letters go with which numbers.

Note that this is only for the Verizon Motorola Q. I don't know what will happen if you try to install it on anything else. It will uninstall cleanly and revert back to the original state if you like.

There are several styles, pictured to the right:

Installation Instructions:

  1. Right-click one of the links above and save the CAB file to your hard drive.
  2. Copy the CAB file to your phone. Any place will do. I'd suggest My Documents.
  3. Using the File Manager on your phone, open the CAB file. This will begin the installation.
  4. After the installation is complete, you may delete the CAB file, or you can keep it on your phone so that you can beam it to your friends.
  5. If you want to uninstall DialPad, go to Start Menu > Settings > Remove Programs.
