    Go to: http://www.txt2day.com/" [Broken]

    Enter the 10 digit phone number, no dashes

    Return e-mail (optional)

    You select the destination cell phone's provider

    Normal tweet text message

    Answer the anti-spam question (don't forget or the message won't be sent)

    Press send...

    That's it...

    Most cell phone companies have put restraints on this type of computer to cell texting due to spammers.

    Evo,

    I agree, that's why you answer the anti-spam question, covers the sender, try it with a couple of your friend's and report back if any or all of your friend's cell phone providers block them.

    I know TMobile doesn't block messages from "txt2day", or should I say didn't as of a month or so ago.

    I wasn't clear, sorry, cell phone companies offer free computer to cell phone texting on their networks, but many are now requiring authentication due to spamming and harrassing complaints. I didn't mean that they block messages from the service you posted, although if complaints are made, I am sure they will get blocked in the future.

    You can also send texts via email.

    All verizon members have their phone number @vtext.com

    Works for tmobile too, as I just wrote a python script to send me a text when my batch job finishes or breaks.
