Just thought it would be a good idea to be able to send text messages via the self serve account. That way, if you misplaced your phone, you could send it a text. If your battery dies while on the road, you could send/receive texts from your phone number through your computer.

Interesting idea, but I don't know if this could be implemented.

I know that there are some phone apps that I have used while in the US that allow me to send and receive free text messages to other phones. It even creates a phone number as well. So maybe with that similar style of programming, it can be implemented into self serve...

Well, anyhing is possible I suppose. It's all a matter if Koodo wants to take the time/money to initiate it. Interesting idea regardless.
