Can I send SMS text messages for free from PC ?

  ford_transit 16:00 24 May 2009

Is such a thing possible without compromising the security of my computer? If so, please, how?
Are there "good/safe" ways of doing this and is there anything to avoid like the plague?
All advice will be very welcome.
Regards to all.

Thanks, smackheadz - I have an Orange phone so I'll give that a go. I never thought of that approach (never heard of it). Sounds good, nothing to download, I guess.
Will try it and report back.

All I can find on Orange website is a reference to a widget for 'pay as you go' customers. I'm on a monthly contract, so might not work. Can you, Smackheadz, please send me a suitable link to try?

Graham - thanks for your response.

Smackheadz - thanks for the link, I've registered and sent two SMS messages to two different numbers and both worked fine. Mission accomplished. Thanks again.

Graham - thank you for your suggestion, could be useful as backup/reserve system.

Again, good friendly response from forum members!

If you are using a window mobile,I suggest you download this contacts tool called "GodswMobile Contacts Transfer",pretty good!
I got its information from some friends.
Hopefully I can give you a hand too.
