I have a T61p, a T400 and a T410 and all 3 of them running w7 Access Connections 5.61 and same problem the sms menu does not show up. I managed to solve the problem on my T61 with the Sierra Manager software which can handle the internal WWAN Sierra card, but for the other 2 which have the Ericsson F3507g nothing can be done as the Sony Ericsson Software does not recognize the WWAN Card!!!
Unfortunately my mobile operator requires me to send an SMS prior to connect 3G so I basically need to take he SIM out use a phone send the SMS, and stick it back in the laptop.
Anyone know which version of access connection has sms still working? for W7? where to download?
Lenovo hope you read this forum, getting a lot of people with the same issue...

have just checked it with 5.50 and 5.61 AC version and I still can see the Text option.
I just go to AC GUI->Tools-> click on "Mobile Broadband"-> select "Start Text messaging"
Can you confirm, what is the version of following apps on your system:
- power manager
- power management driver
- hotkey utility
- system interface driver

unfortunatley this was a design change on the Windows 7 version of Access Connection.
We are still working on to get at least a close functionality also on this Operating system.

what kind of stone age company is lenovo???!!!!
now everytime i need to sign up for a roaming package with my mobile provider, i shut down the darn lenovo, flip it on its belly, take out the sim card, insert the sim card in a usb device ... blablablablabla ...
do you think my next laptop will be lenovo again??
ps: not mentioning all the other issues i am facing after "upgrading" to 7
