Looking for a free texting app that works for other platforms like iphone,android, BB

What do you guys use for texting besides the built in texting features on out TP2? The reason I asked is because I need to text internationally and as long as the cell phone has a data plan, it's free texting for the sender and recipient. Programs like "whatsapp and Pingchat works great on iphones, BB and android, but it doesn't work for Windows phones. So what do you guys use? I don't need to an app that includes chats like AIM or google chat and etc. Just need to text. Thanks!

Re: Looking for a free texting app that works for other platforms like iphone,android

don't know how well it works but i've managed to use Free Text Messaging - Send and Receive Free Text Messages - Text'em for text mesages. It works from computer also, but you can text people to their phones as well.

I mainly use google voice text message, I got an app that lets me get to google voice for calls/texts on tp 2

on both, I cant say much about international fees though, but why not use a chat program for just texts? Fring works well on windows mobile and lets you access multiple platforms

If you know who your sending to, you can send text messages via email client.

When you get setup with an sms account ,the carrier links an email address to that sms account. The only limitation is you must know who their cell phone provider is..once you know who it is you can send it like this:
