sending sms via the web

At times it is useful to send a text message…
Some friends keep asking how i manage to send text messages to their cell phones even though i don’t have one myself.

Well, here’s the secret… (oh nooo, i can see all of my faithful geek readers yawning)

I use the text services at sms.de and web.de.
Both sites are also useful to store telephone numbers and addresses.

I’m not a power user ( = 1-2 text messages per day) and I don’t know how the rates compare with T-Mobile, Swisscom and Co.

History of text messaging: 1

SMS was supposedly invented by engineers at Ericsson that needed a way to communicate on the network while they were working on the voice channel.
