    BB messenger. You're paying data transfer anyway. However, other side has to have Blackberry too...

    Hello, yes you can send a text message to someone in another country.. I live in south America and text people in the us.. But I agree.. If you have an instant messanger on your BB is much better and saves you money. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I do it by composing it as an email, but they receive it as a SMS text. For example. 1234567810@digitextjm.com

    I'm not sure. The best way to find out is to tell the person you want to text to call their carrier and ask if their cell is assigned an email address.
