Sending text to phone from computer over internet?


Is there a way I could send my phone a text from my computer? I've programmed a security system on my computer but it would be really nice if I could program it to send a text message to my phone over the internet when it sees something.

yournumber@msg.telus.com works too. For me it's always been msg.koodomobile.com though. But it's your ten digit number.
I never knew about the@msg.koodomobile.com. I just tried it -- it says it won't work because of a data block (which they enabled after I kept getting charged for no reason)

Yeah, those messages are MMS, like picture messages, so data is required.

yeah, it's funny... I pay for unlimited text and MMS, but then they want me to pay for a data plan too to be able to use it. I guess that means MMS is mostly a waste of money.

Not exactly. MMS is included, so while it requires data, you're never billed for the data usage required for this. Other features can generate charges, but there are ways around that to reduce the risk.
