I've been using Dynmark for some time, which I would recommend, but their texts used to cost as little as 5p. Unless you buy a massive amount, you're looking at around the 7p mark, now. Definately easier than messing about with a phone keypad, though!

If you have PC Software for your mobile, texting by PC to phone is dead easy.

I have a Nokia and use Nokia PC Suite to write and send texts - as you say, it beats having to operate fiddly phone-pads.

I can recommend that Dynmark if you ever fancy it. You may get a few free 'uns if you sign up?
However, my original post.....is it not possible to email direct to a mobile? Or possible but not allowed.......!

"my original post.....is it not possible to email direct to a mobile"

You can only send an email direct to an email account - the question you need answering is "how do I collect/read emails on my mobile phone.

The answer is - it depends if your phone service and phone have this facility - of the facility to log on to the web from your phone and read the emails on webmail.

So look in your phone handbook as to how and if you can set up an email service on your phone.

I'm pretty sure it'll cost you more than SMS.

Thanks for all replies.

Lots of things you can do from your phone at low cost or free here click here

Their email to me includes the phrase "Never pay for text messaging again with Gizmo5" so it might be worth checking out.

It is possible and allowed -

as long as the phone has email capabilities.

Not something I would do myself - text messages via pc to phone is my way.
