The majority of carriers will offer email text messaging; this is a very handy feature to use...once you send your message, the mobile user can reply to your message and their return message will show up in your email inbox. The other method, 1-way internet text messaging, will only allow you to send messages to the mobile user but they cannot reply back.
If you're one of many who still do not have a cell phone, never fear...you can still text your friends or loved ones online, without the high cost of cell phone bills!
