    So I know there's web apps for SMS Texting, like TxtDrop.com, but is anyone working on a native app for the iPod touch, one that uses WiFi? Is it possible to do a clone of safari, set TxtDrop to the homepage, and set it to the iPhone SMS icon? I'd love an app like this just for the green SMS icon and the convenience of it...

    I'm going off topic here, but txtdrop is the bomb! lol. My parents recently removed texting from my phone plan and this completely negates that. Thanks for the link.

    You might need to set the permissions to 755 on the new app. You can search to find out how to do this.

    Just tried it with my Virgin Mobile (CDMA) phone, and you're right, it doesn't work. Tried a few different services I found on Google, and the only one able to do it without manually specifying the provider:

    Unfortunately, they add a fair bit of self-advertising junk to the message.
