    I used the email app to send a text. Depends on the carrier, but for example, to text someone on att: number+txt.att.net in the "TO:" field.

    I wonder why nobody has wrote an webos app that will send a text msg through yahoo or google talk. On my computer I am able to send a text via yahoo. It would be nice to have a fully functioning yahoo or google talk app.

    Google and yahoo services in the messaging app are IM services, not SMS. That's why you can't send texts to cells.

    I used google voice in the browser. No notifications, but meh. Works.

    if you want calls and sms, the only phone that will do that is the pre 3. Later on the veer and pre2 will also, but noone knows how long the update will take to come along...
    Want to help design and write an app?
