    hi im needing to send reminders to people to there phones (cause no one my age except me actually checks their email evidently). i know if they have verizon, u can do like 5552228888 [at] vtext[dot]com to send them a text message, etc, but that only works if i know what carrier they are on. what if i dont know, what their carrier is? i really dont want to have to ask eveyone what their carrier is and wont have to worry about it. im looking for somthing probably along the lines of teleflip (but they them selfs flipped:eek:).
    i want to be able u use with with mail.app . i hate going to web sites and having to fill out their dumb forms.

    so segestions?
    thanks.

    If you don't know the carrier you're out of luck.
