Cablecom widget / gadget for SMS for XP users

I've finally got myself registered to use Cablecom's complimentary SMS.

I've searched but only could find widgets that run on Mac OSX. Perhaps there is someone out there who knows of a widget or program for Win XP that enables a Cablecom Hispeed subscriber to send SMS without having to login and use the German interface web page - I'd be grateful.

Also, if anyone knows the format for email to SMS for Lebara Mobile CH users.

Thanks.

That's because "widgets" are a Mac OSX thing where as on the MS Windows platform they're called "gadgets".

Re: Cablecom widget for SMS for XP users

Unfortunately not .. Nowadays I send my TXTs from the PostMail Organiser, for which I am still looking for an app / widget though.

Re: Cablecom widget for SMS for XP users

Despite having Cablecom for around 3 months now I only just discovered I can send free text messages. Well, 40 per month, but it's 40 more than I thought I could send.

Re: Cablecom widget for SMS for XP users

I think the Cablecom SMS feature works only when logged into from an IP space of Cablecom, which was a little limiting for me as I go back home late and leave the home quite early.

When SwissPost did their migration on April 30th, it was just nice for me - being ISP neutral and can be done ( also for free 50 a month ) while on the road. Interface is in DE, but I am used to it now.

I can imagine if such a widget or app were to exist for Cablecom, it would be popular.
