    Hi,
    Any idea on whats the most reliable way to get MMS and SMS messages sent to your phone without paying for the unlimited texting plan? I'm looking for a good reliable way to send texts to my friends when I don't have wifi and can only use edge.

    I've tried using jivetalk and sending SMS messages from there, but, if I'm searching another website or the edge connectins gets a little crappy. It gets closed, and I can't receive any messages. Also, when I don't have reception, texts can't be sent to me and I don't receive anything. Another feature that would be cool, is to actually know when I get texts.. (with vibrate or a sound)

    Is their someway to integrate texts through emails?

    Just to make sure.. does SMS mean text messages.. and MMS means picture message?

    thanks

    Sending is simple that way, but what about his incoming text messages? Pretty much anyone texting him would have to send it to an email instead right?
