Make sure your recipient wants to receive text messages before communicating via text. If they have Verizon, for instance, and are not paying extra for text service, then each text message they recive on their Verizon cell phone will cost 25 cents.

THERE ARE SEVERAL BETAMAX VOIP PROGRAMS WHICH ENABLE SEND, EITHER FREE OR VERY CHEAP, SMS FROM PC TO CELL PHONES
I had no idea you could send e-mail to a cell phone #. I told hubby about it, and now he takes photos on his cell phone and sends them to my e-mail address. (We don't own a digital camera - gasp!) They are really quite good pictures. I hope to be able to save them to a disk and have hard copies made from that. Everything I know about computers I have learned from your site. Keep up the good work!

and you will get a text I am not sure if it works with other services
This is all good, but is there an easy way to set up my home PC to receive ALL of my messages from my phone, (SMS and pictures), so that I can save them forever? On a smaller scale, can I SMS my PC without a smartphone or an internet package?
If it's under 10 digits (CSC), you should try this site. Most only allow full 10 digit numbers, but this one routes them through their GSM modem, if it's CSC. I ran a radio contest a few weeks ago, and we had a 5 digit code. I sent some test texts to our number, and it worked perfectly. A little delayed (maybe a minute or so), but still got there eventually. They allow 10 digits numbers too, those are much easier to test. Those come through almost immediately.
G-mail Labs has a feature that allows you to send SMS messages via the chat. You can also receive messages back. When you start typing in the little area where it shows "Search, Add or Invite" you'll get an option for SMS. Click on it to add the person and you'll get a window to type the message.
**This is currently only for US phones!**
