TxtMan v2.0.0

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.

Latest news: I am no longer developing a commercial version of TxtMan. I've decided to release the work I've done so far as free software. Woo hoo! Also, check out the new support forum.

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:
* Motorola Q
* Treo 700w
* Treo 700wx
* Cingular 8125
* Verizon XV6700
* Samsung i320
* T-Mobile Dash
* Samsung Blackjack
* Cingular 8525
* Orange M3100
* T-Mobile SDA
* O2 XDA Exec
* T-Mobile MDA (vibrate may not work)

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.
