I recently reviewed Zipwhip, a great program that brings texting to desktop PCs. You can type out messages without ever picking up your phone.

Text messaging or “Text” as its commonly referred to, is an extremely popular way of communication, just next to the actual phone calls. In your Symbian cell phone, you can see who is calling, as the phone shows the callers details on the screen, and you can decide whether you should answer it or not.
