Text From Your Computer (or Android Tablet) Using Your Current Android Phone Number

May 17, 2016

Here’s how this works… Install Yappy on your Android phone; then, install Yappy on computer (and/or tablet). Another option, if you use Google Chrome or Firefox, is to install their browser extensions for Yappy. The key here is to make sure you have the app installed on your phone to make sure your texts sync between your phone and computer (and vice versa). If you are confused with my instructions, then visit the Yappy web site to learn more. I have been using Yappy and it has worked quite well for me.

KPC – “Keeping Parents Clueless” With Text Messaging

December 10, 2014

For a 57 year old techie, my texting skills are pretty good compared to others in my age group; but, put me up against today’s teens and I am clearly no match (not even close). Part of the problem may be that I do not know the text message acronym system that is used by today’s kids to shorten (and hide) what they type. As a matter of fact, the first time I received a text “LOL = laughing out loud”, from my daughter, I was scratching my head.

I often stand back and wonder who determines the standard for any particular text message acronym and how does this become an accepted standard???  It is almost like the kids are born into this type of secretive messaging system that KPC – Keeps Parents Clueless. As a matter of fact, the kids are the teachers in this case and as student parents we need to know and learn this special language (to help keep our kids safe).

The point of this article is to let you know, especially if you are a parent, that these types of text communications can be closely related to those raging hormones and possibly to a hidden problem.

I happened across an Arizona based website, called azcentral, that had a piece (and video) on this very topic, and featured the “Top 28 Internet and text message acronyms every parent should know… (Source: azcentral)

I hope this list provides insight and makes us more sensitive in knowing what our kids are doing and saying (in coded words) to each other:

1. IWSN – I want sex now

2. GNOC – Get naked on camera

3. NIFOC – Naked in front of computer

4. PIR – Parent in room

5 CU46 – See you for sex

6. 53X – Sex

7. 9 – Parent watching

8. 99 – Parent gone

9. 1174′ – Party meeting place

10. THOT – That hoe over there

11. CID – Acid (the drug)

12. Broken – Hungover from alcohol

13. 420 – Marijuana

14. POS – Parent over shoulder

15. SUGARPIC – Suggestive or erotic photo

16. KOTL – Kiss on the lips

17. (L)MIRL – Let’s meet in real life

18. PRON – Porn

19. TDTM – Talk dirty to me

20. 8 – Oral sex

21. CD9 – Parents around/Code 9

22. IPN – I’m posting naked

23. LH6 – Let’s have sex

24. WTTP – Want to trade pictures?

25. DOC – Drug of choice

26. TWD – Texting while driving

27. GYPO – Get your pants off

28. KPC- Keeping parents clueless

Did You Know You Can Easily Send (and Receive) Cell Phone (SMS) Text Messages Using Gmail Chat?

August 24, 2012

I have been finding that many people do not realize that there is an instant messaging (chat) feature in Gmail that lets you send and receive instant messages with other Gmail chat users. This feature is typcially turned on by default.  To make sure it is turned on, click on the gear icon and choose Settings.  Click the Chat tab to determine if chat is on or off.


Now that you have discovered Gmail chat, did you know you can send and receive SMS text (cell phone) messages using Gmail chat?

Here’s how to turn the SMS text messaging feature on:

Gmail chat lets you easily send text messages to and from cell phones. If this feature isn’t already enabled on your account, you can enable it by following these steps:

  1. Click the gear icon in the upper right, then select Settings.
  2. Select the Labstab.
  3. Scroll down until you see Text Messaging (SMS) in Chat, select Enable and Save Changes.

Here’s how to use the SMS text messaging feature, in Gmail chat, to send (and receive) text messages:

  1. Enter your contact’s name in the ‘Search or invite friends’ box in Chat, and select Send SMS from the box of options that appears to the right of your contact’s name. Or, if you already have a Chat window open for this contact, just click Options, and select Send SMS.
  2. In the dialog box, enter a phone number in the ‘Send SMS messages to this number’ field. This feature is only launched in selected countries. Click herefor the list of supported countries and operators. If you are not located in one of these countries you can still use it, but you won’t see the SMS option in Chat until you enable it manually in the Chat settings page.
  3. Click Save.
  4. A Chat window appears. Just type your message as you would normally. When you hit Enter, the message will be sent to the phone number you entered.

If your contact replies, the text message response will appear as a reply in Chat. These conversations are stored in your Chat history just like regular chats (but keep in mind that you can’t go off the record while communicating via SMS).

Send a Text Message to Google to Get Search Results

December 28, 2010

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.

Google SMS

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.
