Hi, can someone help me with that? I have been reading about skype or virtual phones, but I wdon't find exactly what I want: I want someone that doesn't have any of this, just have a cellphone, send an SMS to a number that I give, so that I can receive it on my computer. I have http://www.zedfreesms.com to do the inverse (send SMS from my computer to any phone) so I think the other thing must exist...

There's this chikka.com It supports a lot of country's cp number and you can even send a msg to a computer chikka account. It's a Philippine based SMS. Have fun texting and mylotting.

I have no idea. I have never tried to do that before. I have dialup internet service so I do not even think I could do it if I even tried to.

Just reply on that specific sms message what you would like to send, and instead of filling in a telephone number, choose that you would like to send it to an e-mail address. I'm not sure if you can do that with an sms, but I know for sure that it's possible with an MMS, which is almost the same thing. Just try out to send it to an e-mail address. I think that's the most simple solution. Ofcourse you could as well sync your own cellphone if you've got an usb cable. This means he will be saving all your data, sms, contacts etc..on your computer! It's like a back-up from your phone..And there are certain softwares on the internet where you can watch certain syncs with! You just have to try these 2 out, one of the 2 will work for sure!

You want to send sms on someone elses computer as an email? If I understood that correctly lol. I just write an sms, then instead of choosing a number I type email address in it. I send pics, messages whatever. It cant be any easier then that :)

install chikka.com, you can send sms to celphones from your computer, and can receive sms to your chikka account on computer from a celphone as well, for free. just check on that site, it might be of great help, as it is with me. whenever i will be running out of celphone load, that's my remedy...but im not pretty sure it would work in your country, it depends also on the telecommunications available in your country.
