I don’t know about you, but I type a bit faster on a keyboard, so this is really helpful for me & I thought I should pass it along as I’ve been using it for quite a while & it’s saved me a LOT of time. Plus it’s free
If you’re online, you can send SMS’es to users of the Far East Tone network at:
You don’t have to install ICQ on your computer for those who are worried about that. But I think that you DO have to have some kind of administrative control over the box. Hmmm, I think that I’ve sent SMS’es from an internet cafe before.
I guess you have to have an ICQ id for this, but that’s free. The only thing I use my ICQ id for is sending SMS’es.
It seemed a little tricky at first, so here’re some tips:
Go to “Send SMS” at the bottom.
Then “Send SMS to Non ICQ User”
Put in 886 (or choose Taiwan from the list); enter the network # (e.g. 0918); enter the last 6 digits (e.g. 423042)
Check “Remove leading zero from the Network #”
OK - then type your message. If people reply & you’re online it’ll show up on your computer, so if you are going out you have to remind people to contact you at your regular cell #.
Does anybody know of any other places for doing this besides ICQ? What about software so you can send SMS’es from your PC using a phone line?
