Default Send txt without txt plan

Please Login to Remove!

OK What I want to do is send someone a txt message on their non BB. They have unlimited txt, while I can receive txt for free it cost me money to send it. Is there a program that can let me send a txt message on my BB with sending it through the txt plan?

Send it via email. It'll show up as text for them.

It doesn't have to get email. They will receive it as a SMS.

I kind of thought that, but every phone company has their own txt address. And I am wasn't sure what it was. I was also hoping that someone would have came up with a program that would have pulled the number out of your phone book, and attached the address in an email for you. I would have just addressed it to [email address] upon your instructions. Which would have gone nowhere. At least with MM list I knew att had to have [email address] as the address. But thanks for your response, it did get me thinking in that direction and if MM did not replied with that link, I would have probably found the right address using google.com.
