    So I'm way too cheap to pay $20 a month for unlimited SMS, so I've been using a Ymail account for push messaging and sending SMS through gateways.

    Is there any alternative for free SMS? Like through a Cydia app with unlimited free SMS that would make things easier? My only problems with email is that I have to look up each persons carrier and create a seperate email address with it. That and I just get notifications for email and can't tell the diff between that and my SMS.

    Any suggestions? Or anyone interested in making a SMS looking app that runs off of a Ymail account?

    You can use BeejiveIM. From there you can send free unlimited SMS from Yahoo and AIM:cool:

    But then everyone gets all that jibba jabba in their text messages, the whole (this was sent by a user using AIM blah blah). If I find two different good IM programs I'll do that though and try one for SMS and one for IMs. It's nice using the email over AIM for one reason though, MMS works too. :D
