    What carriers are there in Germany? Look for some free sms websites.. and go from there.

    aye. do some google research. thats how i found the free uk one i use. but whatever, your message will more than likely carry an advert each time you send.

    I'm not sure if the AIM trick would work in the UK, but this is the simple process:

    download AIM app from app store
    after signing in, open new IM
    it asks for screename or SMS: type in 1+(areacode)(number)
    so you would have 11 numbers in all (are phone numbers the same in europe?)
    and then just text!

    The "1" is the country code for the U.S., so no, it wouldn't work if trying to text somebody who's service is based in another country. The country code for Germany is 49, I believe.

    I found this, if it is any use to you:
