    Is there any application for the mac that lets me send and receive text messages from mobile devices? I know skype does outgoing only but i need it to receive text messages too. Any one know? That is free?

    I thought yahoo did that but nope. I think thats just for windows :(

    Thanks man. I would not have figured that out because I was looking for text messages in contacts menu. Guess not. Thanks though.

    Edit: Did not work. :(
    There is no menu called "New chat with person"...there's only "new chat"

    EDIT2: Nvm it worked lol

    IF you have your friends cell phones loaded into Address Book, you can actually 'right click' on your iChat friend's name and click 'Send SMS' I find this to be quite useful during boring lectures.

    You can also go to file, Send SMS..., then enter the cell phone number. Also works great. I do this also sometimes during lectures, even if someone sends a sms to my cell first.

    Does anyone know of a good SMS interceptor which would get the SMS to go to my macbook instead of my cell, or grab the SMS from my cell phone after it went to it?
