Default Text App that Uses Data

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I am looking for an app for my BB that allows me to send a txt msg similair to what it would be like if you went to a cell providers website and sent a txt for free from there.

Basically, not SMS, but rather an app that lets me enter a mobile number and send a text. Even if they cannot reply, that would not matter.

I know this sounds weird...but I am just wondering if any such app exists?

Thanks

D

Apparently, Google Voice is not available in Canada yet. Any other suggestions?

Are you looking to send text messages but not pay for texting?
