Send SMS's From Dashboard via Your Phone

There seems to be several "free" and non-free dashboard widget alternatives for sending text messages via internet in Apple's email & messaging downloads page, but none of those free ones covered Finland, and the ones that cost something were more expensive than my current deal.

So I tried the two widgets that use your phone instead. emitSMS's number search is faster than choosing the number from a drop down menu in Bluetooth Texter.

My  phone required minor tweaking with Bluetooth Prefences (in System Preferences):

And in the widget itself it was pretty straightforward:

That's it.

This is a lot faster than opening Address Book, searching for the person, clicking the phone number and choosing the send sms option.
