Send and receive standard SMS messages with your iPod Touch to any kind of mobile phone, from anywhere with a wifi connection. The required SMSGlobal account has no fees, supports 400 carriers in 140 different countries, and your credits never expire. You also get 25 free credits on signup, which is about the value of this app, so what have you got to lose?
The recipient does not need a smartphone or any kind of software or IM client – it works even with your mother’s ancient Nokia - and there is no need to know the name of their carrier.
You receive SMS responses via email – immediately, if you subscribe to a push-email service such as MobileMe, Gmail or Yahoo.
How it Works
Enter the recipient’s phone number or select it from your Contact List. Type your message and press ‘Send’. It can’t get easier than that!
The receiver gets a normal SMS message, with a telephone number to reply. When she replies, the message is sent to the email account you specify on signup.
For even greater convenience, if you need to respond you can do so directly from your email application, no need to restart Real SMS.
