Sending SMS from your PC using a web browser through your Android Phone

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/03/29

I have been a long-time PushBullet user, but I bumped into an alternative if you just want to send SMS from a PC using a web browser through your Android Phone.

You will miss out all the other neat PushBullet features (like clipboard support), but it does work:

There is even a Mac warpper for it:

Resetting the OnePlus data limit behaviour

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/18

Somehow I managed to get a OnePlus phone to have the read data limit line stuck at ~5 gigabyte whereas the warning was at ~15 gigabyte.

This caused all sorts of havoc when I passed the 5 gigabyte mark: cellular data would turn off, I would get all sorts of warnings and – worst of all – I could not reset the red line.

The solution was at [WayBack] Unable to remove “Cellular data limit exceeded” notification even after changing the data limit on OnePlus 2’s OOS 3.5.5:

There are numerous discussions offering a solution to this:

  1. Goto Settings > Backup & reset > Network settings reset.
  2. Now select the affected SIM card
  3. Now click Reset Settings.
