    I didn't see this posted anywhere. Seems like a cool trick if you text the same person constantly and don't want to pay for unlimited texts. Send SMS for Free via AIM on iPhone

    Too bad that will not help when people send you the initial text message.

    cool trick but search the forum next time. google: [that thing you wanted to search for instead of posting the same thread for a 100th time] site:macrumors.com or check out MRoogle.

    have fun with those SMS's in the meantime... if you don't open that initial text you get you can just send them one back and say to repeat it to AIM.

    This thing has been out for years, since aim 4.0 when they allowed you to add mobile numbers to your buddy list. I've been using it for a while, but my friends get pissed at me.

    If you IM a mobile device, they will receive the message with "Sent by SN message part # of #"

    My friends have reported that they never get the messages in order, sometimes part 5 comes first then part 1 then 2, etc.

    It wastes a lot of text and it doesn't come at once and they are all individual messages.

    But hey its free on your part.
