    You can send SMS messages from any email client. All you need to do is find the correct ending. For instance, Verizon's is ###-###-####@vtext.com. And with that method, you can actually receive messages, too.

    2 questions:

    1. What is the sprint email ending? (EDIT: Already know it from danls92)
    2. What would the reciever (cell phone user) have to do to send it to your email? (I.e. put in your email?)

    Just do what jaggedtoaster said, and send an email to ###-###-####@(whatever the carrier's email address is).com

    Here are some popular ones:

    T-Mobile: phonenumber@tmomail.net
    Virgin Mobile: phonenumber@vmobl.com
    Cingular: phonenumber@cingularme.com
    Sprint: phonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com
    Verizon: phonenumber@vtext.com
    Nextel: phonenumber@messaging.nextel.com

    They just reply like it was a normal text message, or send it to your email address (just normal, nothing special needed).

    Wow, it seems that I excited everyone. I suppose you would just have to ask the person which carrier they use. But hey, whatever works.

    (And this is random, but thanks for making the amazing videos ipodtouchmaster. They will help me out greatly on Christmas. I can't wait!)
