    This is my first tutorial so I may make a mistake, but here goes!

    First, head over to installer and download SkySMS.app.
    (If you can't find it, I will post my own addition of it)

    When that is done, and your iPod has resprung, then open the app.

    Press the setting button at the top of the screen, and click: "Add an account"

    On your computer, go to https://www.vyke.com/index.jsf

    Click on the Free Trial button.

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    Enter you details there.

    (Where it asks for a phone number, put a valid one there, because that is how you will get free texts. Also, enter you area code before you enter your number. I live in the UK, so +44 is for Britain.)

    Click sign up, and a text will come to your phone with 4 numbers on it. Enter those numbers into the box located here:

    Now you have $1! (That's 100 texts) Now, on your ipod, enter those details into the boxes, like shown:

    And now you have 100 free texts! Want more? Here's how!! (You will need more phones or more sim cards)

    All you do is sign out of VYKE, and click the free trial button again. Then simply repeat the whole process on a different phone number, and you will get another 100 free texts!! When the 4 numbers are put in, and you have another 100 free texts, write the usernames and passwords down in Notes.app, like this:

    And there you are! When you have ran out of your 100 free texts on one account, just type in another! DONE!!

    Have fun!

    All area codes are in the third post!!

    How to text!

    Open the application and press in the "To:" area. A keypad will appear. YOU MUST TYPE IN THE AREA OF WHOM YOU ARE GOING TO SEND THE MESSAGE TO! For example:

    I am going to text Bill. His number is 07953154685. (British)
    If I want to text him through SkySMS, I have to miss out the very first zero, and type +44. In other words, his number will now look like this: +447953154685. Then I write the message!

    I can also add a contacts from Contacts.app! Just remember: When you type the numbers in, add the area code.

    Hope this helps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What he means is can he use his mobile number from his Verizon phone and send texts through his wifi.

    Techinally if you made your username your Mobile Phone number, it would look as if it was coming from your mobile.

    not to hijack this thread, but with Beejive's Jivetalk (must be on ipod or iphone for this link to work) you can text and recieve, all you need is an AIM account, then to add a contact, you just type the country code followed by the phone number in the screen name field (ex: +15554446666), then you can nickname them with the name that goes with the number

    Screen shot of the site:

    Easy, simple, and free

    NOTE: if anyone's number here is actually 555-444-6666, sorry, I just randomly came up with the number...
