    Okay well alot of ppl have been wondering how to receive SMS on the iPod touch.

    Sure sending them is easy enough (online SMS such as yahoo, or the skySMS.app)

    but receiving them is a whole nother deal.
    so this is an easy way to get around this problem.

    As most of uk, aim can be modified so that all the instant messages you receive while offline can be forwarded to your cell phone through SMS.

    So here's a way:

    have your friends register their cell phone through aim so offline instant messages can be forwarded to their cell.

    Use the Apollo instant messaging app and logon to your aim account, and now you can IM/Text all your friends!!!

    you can still listen to music and web browse and everything while texting (IMing) because by just pressing the home button or the sleep button it doesnt actually close out Apollo.

    and there you go!!

    You can also add your friends cell phones directly to your account by putting +1 then their phone number.

    Send an email to 1234567890@teleflip.com, where the # is their phone #. They will get a text from your email and reply to your email from their phone.

    I'm also interested in this method.

    Does it work with MSN Messenger, which can be accessed through Apollo?

    If not, if I were to create an account with AIM, would I just add +44<contacts number> and it would add them as a friend? I am in the UK!

    Cheers
