    Text Messaging

    Is there any website that will send a text message to a Wind phone number?

    All the websites that I tried ask for the phone number and carrier, Telus, Rogers, etc, but none list Wind as a carrier.

    If you have a GoogleVoice account, you can text to WIND numbers. But that's about the only way other than Facebook and Twitter.

    I tried using Google Voice, logged in to my Google account and got this message:


    Google Voice is not available in your country.
    Thanks for visiting Google Voice. We're not yet open for users outside the US, but are planning to expand our service to additional countries in the future.

    Phone numbers in Canada, UK(except for London and Manchester) and United States are capable of receiving SMS text messages!

    With Anveo you can not only send messages but also receive replies!

    i love my holiday miracle plan with my TO # attached to a NYC google voice number (early Grandcentral days allowed forwarding to CDN numbers). Now my american friends can call me local and i can send out text as a US #. Google voice app rocks, no need to pay for spam services like ^.
