    Is anybody else having problems texting from PC to phone (x3 or other) via Cortana? I notice that i can't send an original text via Cortana, but it will work if i am responding. Text from PC to phone works fine via Skype (i love that feature more actually), still im wondering if I'm the only one experiencing this or if this service has been cut off. I have an x3.

    Sending directly from Cortana on my PC works for me (using a 950XL) and I just did it again to make sure. I'm assuming that's what you mean by "original text". Responding via notifications in my PC Action Center has always been wonky for me, across multiple phones and multiple PCs. But sending from Cortana has been reliable. Skype may be affecting things. I always uninstall it from my phone as it's wreaked havoc with my contacts several times.

    Hey Cortana, send a text to ******* normally works as a way of sending a fresh non reply text to someone.

    Well it does on my SP4

    And no I don't use the Skype SMS feature as it has mucked up all my contacts far too many times for me to enable it again.
    fin11 and Byrese like this.
