    Depends on how the carrier has their backend set up. On TMO, they can send a text via email to my phone #@tmomail.net. or a seperate name I have set up on mytmobile. there's a complete carrier listing here http://www.sms411.net/2006/07/how-to-send-email-to-phone.html
    PIN to PIN is basically blackberry only, with the exception of the site in the previous post. Most phones and carriers can send SMS direct to email also, simply give them the email address associated with your blackberry, if their carrier allows it.

    PIN to PIN messages are not encrypted and transmit in plaintext, allowing anyone who intercepts them to read them. While this is a remote possibility, you should keep it in mind and not send sensitive information in a PIN to PIN message.
