Is it possible to send sms texts using broadband, all the programs I have seen send using dialup. I dont want to sign up for web based sms. Any ideas?

I think it's possible as I'm sure my son uses that feature from my connection.
He's away on holiday at the moment so it will be later next week before I can ask him what he uses.

Meanwhile if anyone else knows the answer then please chip in. Smiley

From what I can recall of some research I did a while ago, you can buy add-ons for MS Outlook which allow you to send SMS messages for free.

These add-ins can also be used to alert you to certain mail messages etc (the reason I was looking into it, for server alert messages)

I would be very wary of any totally 'free' services, as I don't believe we ever get anything for nothing, so expect spyware and be prepared to deal with them straight away at a minimum if you don't get an officially licensed version.

if you know the users server you can email them as SMS is just email. This kind of works but needs a bit of playing around ::

You can send free texts from O2 too. http://www.o2.co.uk/txt/0,,300,00.html
You need to register. They send a confirmation text to your mobile. If you have more than one mobile, you'll be able to get more than one lot of free texts each month.
Ther's a little programme called "E genie" it works alongside the O2 text service and can be downloaded from download.com http://www.download.com/eGenie/3000-10440_4-8710694.html

This looks quite interesting, but do you have any further details please?

Playing it simple, I tried to send an email to both my T-moble & Vodafone mobiles using the formats you suggested. Both reported local user not known. This kind of implies that the target phone has to be registered for the service to work ... and I guess that's how these boys make their cash by charging the recipient. Potentially this could cost someone a bomb if some net jockey decides to SPAM their phone with SMS messages!

Any thoughts?
