There’s now a new and easy way to send and receive text messages online. All you have to do is download a software or a text messaging client which lets you send and receive messages on your computer, laptop, iPod or iPhone; and you can instantly send and receive messages anywhere in the world even without a phone! The caveat though is that you need to have an internet connection.
This type of messaging system works just like instant messaging. But instead of PC to PC conversation, the software or the messaging client allows you to have a PC to mobile phone conversation with anyone you want to talk to. While you can send as many messages as you want, just like in instant messaging, there is a limit to the number of words or characters you can send. Most of these text messaging clients also double as instant messaging software, allowing you to exchange instant messages with buddies who are also online.
