    i dont have a touch yet, i went to that site with firefox on my macbook.. it just asks for MY email address.. and then 2 blank fields..

    I assume that its missing some labels when not viewed on a touch, what do the other two fields need to be entered? (i would assume one is the message and the other is the recievers phone #)

    Can you explain this a bit more?

    Thanks

    Just put in the #, with the area code, no spaces or dashes @vtext.com, and then add that e-mail in your contacts, and you can txt just like that, i just with that mail would refresh every min....

    OK, heres a weird thing. I tested this website, i sent a test text to myself, (i have Rogers in canada) and it got a text saying i am not subscribed to email to text messages, someone wants to send me one, do i want to subscribe. Okay i take it that worked.

    Second, i sent a text to my roommate, and he has Bell in Canada, and he never got any of my texts.

    So i think that it might have something to do with what carrier you have (?)

    Thats at least what i think, i do know that some carriers have text sites like this specific for that company (I know Bell Canada has one on the Bell.ca site)

    I still want to understand this a bit more, because it would kick ass if i could receive a text on my cell phone when i am at school or home and respond on my Touch (i have to pay to send texts cause i'm on a cheap student plan :))

    I have had very great success with txtdrop...i live in VA and send texts to my friend in FL and he has T-Mobile. Now if you want to send texts to other people through your email there are different addresses to send your message to..

    @vtext.com = just for verizon wireless users, and you have to sign up on their site to confirm that you want to use this form of text.

    @tmomail.net = this is for T-Mobile users...

    these are the only ones i know of, but i'm sure you could find the others with google...

    i beg to differ, you dont need to sign up (as the sender)
    but i believe the receiver needs unlimited.
