    Hey all,

    Done a quick search but has provided nothing of any use.

    Has anyone came across any good SMS sending sites (or even apps) which allow you to send (and if possible receive) text messages to mobiles using the iPod Touch (IN THE UK?)

    Cheers

    Since the iPod Touch now has email capability, you could send text messages via teleflip.com. Just write an email with a phone number like: 123-123-1234@teleflip.com. I think you may want to remove the dashes, but this will send an email (or "text" message) to the recipient.

    Link to Teleflip's website: https://www1.teleflip.com/

    That looks great but I think it's US only.

    Does anyone know any others?

    SkySMS

    There is an application called SkySMS that lets you send SMS messages by VoiP. You will need to download FreeCall and make an acountHere.

    Then add this source: irepo.xwaves.net
    Then go through all packages to find SkySMS and download it.
    Then go to Settings > Tap the FreeCall arrow > Enter your login and password.

    Then you can send texts untill your account runs out (if it does just make a new one).

    That looks great. How do you actually know when they will start charging you tho? Is it really free to send these texts, as in no hidden charges or anything?

    OK, just made an account and all looks good. They don't ask for any kind of credit card or anything, which seems odd. (not that I would give it out to them ;)) But how do they start charging you after your free SMS have run out?

    I'm not doubting you at all VToX but I'm just a very wary person!

    Does anyone else use this?

    this is fantastic. just what i have been waiting for.
    Bought some credit thru freecall.
    now i can send sms worldwide for 1p per txt from my ipod,

    the best thing is ur credit never runs out, and you dont have to use it by a certain date

    cheers

    when you make an acc with freecall, you get about 5 introductory free sms, then it cost 1p per txt, to most countrys, altho some are free.
