    I seriously doubt this is illegal or anything but ive looked up a way to send free text messages ( free for you, not for reciever ), from your ipod or iphone, as long as you have wifi / 3G access and an email address. Thing is, each company has a related email address to every phone number. Most times it will be like, EX:
    yourphonenumber@aspecialcodeforeverydifferentcompany
    you can find this code for most countries here:

    update: works for me here in canada, i've tried verizon and bell, both work, but rogers doesnt work anymore cuz rogers and fido got rid of it.

    You could just use AIM to send text messages to phones. Did you know that? And Google's GTalk is starting to support that too. I think some other IM protocols do that also. The person being texted can even IM you back via Text messages. I wonder if you knew that.

    MSN is dominant here in canada.
