    Hey guys,

    I've been using Windows Live Messenger to send and receive messages on my phone, and so that other people can message my phone, even if they don't have one, or don't have a texting plan.

    However, recently, it has proven to be less than. All of the time, it will "drop" messages; that is, either the PC will not receive them or the mobile. So i've been wondering, what other good PC to SMS services would you guys recommend? In addition, my text message usage has gone through the roof, so i think they are charging me for the messages (Although my plan includes unlimited incoming messages.)

    I'm in the good old Canada so, it needs to be supported here. I've been thinking of using the SMS features of Yahoo! Messenger, does anyone have any other recommendations?

    I just use email.

    For my phone I do
    mynumber@vtext.com for texting
    mynumber@vzwpix.com for pictures

    I have Verizon.
