If you take a moment to read this article, from BGR (source link below), you will find that the text messaging system they are referring to is the WEA System (Wireless Emergency Alerts), where only three types of alerts are permitted:
- Alerts by the President
- Alerts involving imminent threats to safety or life
- Amber alerts

Wish you could answer your phone text from your computer? Well, you can with the Google Chrome browser extension, called MightyText. You must first install the MightyText Android App, on your phone, from the Google Play store which will enable the permission to sync your text messages from your phone to the browser extension. After you have completed that installation on your phone, install the MightyText Chrome browser extension from the Chrome Web Store.
I’ve been using MightyText for over a week now and I must say I am liking what I am seeing and experiencing. I like the idea that when I am on my computer and I receive a text on my phone I will also get the text on my computer where I can reply to the sender. Since you are using your computer’s keyboard, typing out your text messages is much faster. You can also have your contacts synced with your phone so that you can pull up a contact and start sending text messages (and even generate phone calls) directly from your browser window.
Other features include syncing photos/videos from your phone, creating draft text messages, a built in scheduler and a visual status of your phone’s battery (and an alert when the battery is low).

Data plans for mobile phones are typically not in the range of affordability for everyone. If you do not have a data plan and you wish you could have at least the capability of getting the weather, movies, product information, driving directions, phone listings, and more; THEN you are in for a surprise. Almost all mobile phone plans offer text messaging as an included or add-on service. Text Messaging is typically the common term used for SMS (Short Message Service). With your text messaging service did you know that you can text message Google to conduct a search query and Google will determine the information and text the top results back to you? Once you get the hang of it; it is nearly as quick as lightning.
Here’s how it works… Enter this number into your mobile phone: 466453 . It is the number to Google SMS. Then follow the instructions at the Google SMS website [ HERE ] . I think you will be quite surprised to what information you can pull down using Google SMS. With Google’s SMS Service and Microsoft’s FREE 411 Service, that was recently featured here, you will be amazing your friends and family in no time.
Reminder: Handset must be SMS capable and user must be authorized to use this device. This service is free from Google but message & data rates may apply.
