I use the MyPhoneExplorer (MPE) utility to send SMS/text message from my Windows host through my Android smartphone connected to the computer with a USB cable. It's a no-brainer.

A friend of mine has an iPhone and a Windows laptop: I was wondering if there's an equivalent to MPE that can work with an iPhone:

  1. Runs on Windows and iPhone
  2. Windows and iPhone connected through USB cable

Connecting both hosts (Windows laptop + iPhone smartphone) to wifi just for this is overkill.

Thank you.


Not without jail breaking the iPhone. There are numerous tweaks available on Cydia (jail break equivalent of App Store) that enable this functionality.

iPhones and a Mac computer will both send SMS messages natively from your phone number, but this isn't available on Windows.

  • Thanks. I'll investigate how to jailbreak and if texting can be done from Windows – Gulbahar Jun 13 '15 at 18:15
