    Yea I'm doing it right now lol...

    First you have to find the carrier, like for versison is "@VTEXT.com"

    So a person with number "555-555-5555" and verison would be "5555555555@VTEXT.COM"
    And you email that.

    Firstly, I was wondering if this works for the UK.

    And secondly, do you not need to pay to text these people?

    Well I don't know if it does work in UK but it should work in theory

    and you don't need to pay to text people but make sure it's ok with them to text or they have a unlimited sms plan

    OK go to a aim client and click IM buddy or some thing then you need to add +1 to the number you are texting no space and no dashes

    EX: +15555555555
