Send SMS from E-Mail - Lifehacker

Do you have someone's cell number and know what carrier they use. Well, did you know that you can use that information to send them a text message by e-mailing them from your desktop. I picked up this cool trick on Lifehacker. Apparently this has been around for some time, but it is news to me. I tested it, and it worked. You may want to check with your friends and make sure they have free text before you go crazy with this.
Enter their phone number with area code to the left of the @ sign and follow it with the appropriate carrier e-mail info:
T-Mobile phonenumber@tmomail.net
Virgin Mobile phonenumber@vmobl.com
Cingular phonenumber@cingularme.com
Sprint phonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com
Verizon phonenumber@vtext.com
Nextel phonenumber@messaging.nextel.com
Type your message and send.

Cool stuff from Lifehacker.

Follow up: According to customer service, Verizon does charge for text messages, but only if message is opened. (Try using subject line for quick message which does not need to be opened.)
