    Free SMS? teleflip?

    Advertisement



    Hey all, after using 70 of my 400 text messages in one day I am looking for an alternative to send text messages to my friends. I searched and came across teleflip. It seems cool, but the other person cannot respond without finding me in their address book and sending me a message. I also know I can send texts from a computer, but again, it is hard for the other person to respond.

    So, are there any other solutions that I could try?

    Is there a way to "register" teleflip so that people can respond easier?

    Is there a command to check the number of text messages left in a given billing period?

    FYI- I am with t-mobile BIS.

    Courtlandre, for those friends of yours that have BBs, you can BB Messenger them. For those who don't, you might want to consider downloading an IM client such as JiveTalk. That way is your friends have AOL, Yahoo or other clients, you can IM them using only data.

    Another possible solution: I know when using desktop instant messengers that you can send text messages to phones. Are there any BB text messengers that support this?

    Only the ones that use SMS... Can you get a bigger SMS package? The SMS gateways and relays are work-arounds and, as you've seen, not a great solution.

    You could always recruit your friends into the cult of Blackberry and PIN for free...
