It does not cost you anything to send text messages to a cell phone from your computer, simply type your friend's cell phone address into the "to" box in the e-mail header.

If you are a Verizon Wireless customer, the address is the (number)@vtext.com.

For AT and T: (number)@txt.att.net

For T-Mobile: (number)@tmomail.net

For Sprint: (number)@messaging.sprintpcs.com

Source: I just received this information from my daughter who said it was emailed to her at work.

I am wondering if the person receiving the text message on their cell phone gets charged though?

This is fine for the sender but it does cost the receiver. May be okay if the receiver has unlimited text service.

Yes, the receiver will be charged. Also there is a Yahoo Widget from Callwave that you can store numbers and send texts, regardless of cell phone carrier

For Att users (at least) you need to enter the phone number w/o the '1' and no dashes.....just run the seven digits together.
