    Hi

    With Outlook 2010 SP2 64 bit, it is possible to use an USB internet stick (Alcatel IK40 by TIM) to send and receive SMS?

    Thanks

    It would appear not: https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/Send-and-receive-text-messages-SMS-8a8c38d5-a197-4df7-929b-08c5e259a0ca (You need Exchange and either Windows Mobile or a subscription to an SMS provider)

    Have you tried anything with your device?
    Have you checked if the mobile provider offers an SMS service?

    By chance, you know a Windows software which completely manages the phone book and the SMSs from the USIM of this internet stick?

    Thanks

    All the mobile data dongles (USB or MiFi) I have used include a basic web site that allows you to manage the device. RTFM and see if it gives you any help.

    The main problem of my stick is in the SMS management because it does not allow to manage the USIM phone book (or to create it one on the computer) and it does not warn me of the SMS reception. So how do I fix this?

    Thanks

    I have purchased an internet stick, Alcatel IK40 by TIM.

    Now, since this stick is devoid of a Windows software that fully manages the USIM phone book and the sending/receiving SMSs, I could use the Smart suites http://www.alcatel-mobile.com/global…martsuite/list to do this? If yes, which model should I select? If not, you know which suites I have to download to get my purpose?

    Thanks

    Bye
