    Default Computet to Cell Phone Texting.

    Does anyone know if there is a program that allows a person to send a text message to a phone in Dominican Rep. from a computer in a different country?

    I have also used Skype to send a text to a cell phone in the DR. But it does cost a little bit because it is not Skype to Skype. I think it was $0.33 cents for a short text. I do not remember the exact amount, sorry.

    localphone.com, anveo.com etc allow you to send text messages for a small charge to any cell number in the world. Anveo also supports two-way messaging and you get an sms reply via email or can see it in online interface.

    It does. I text my daughter from Yahoo IM, and she replies. I am in the DR and she is in the US.

    You are the man! I was wondering if this was available!

    Hmmm I wonder if I have to use my DR # as the sender for this to work?

    It does not ask for 'your' number, it asks for a name.

    If the person you text responds, it goes to your 'Internet" session, it has a respond time of about 2 minutes, else you will not get their response.
