Send a Text Message - Anywhere in the World

Send a Text Message - Anywhere in the World
So, I've been testing this super cool program with a weird name WataCrackaz Auto SMS for about a month now and I really like it. It lets you send a text message to any carrier anywhere in the world. There are multiple layers to this awesome service.

The first is that you can go to the website and just send a text message.
The second layer is that you can add all your friends/colleagues and their mobile numbers (you need to know what carrier they're on for this to work). Once you do this, you can pull them up and send text messages.

The third and best layer is that you can install the Watacr
ackaz toolbar in firefox. So, at any time, you can just whip off a text message from the toolbar.

The only downside to this program is that the messages come from your Watacrackaz account - so you have to either check site for replies or tell people to make sure and reply to text messages with your phone number.

This is soooooo much easier than tapping out text messages on a phone.It's especially great if you want to text people while you're working and they may be out and about on their phones. You just check your "received" messages on the website while at your computer.

I'd highly recommend you use your firstname and lastname as your sign-up name, so people can ID your text messages.
