    Question An sms messenger for ubuntu?

    I am looking for an sms messenger for linux, or a way to use yahoo on it so i can send and receive them. Using aim on pigin (and even aim on pc) she gets my message times 20, and i have no reception here to use my phone. so just a stand alone messenger for smsing or a messenger that will let me use my yahoo account for it would be awsome. just dont want to go the route of having to use qemu (or a simpler way to simulate xp on linux?)

    I send SMS messages via email all the time. Would that work? Have her send a SMS to your email and note her cell phones SMS address. Then, you can send her SMS messages via evolution/thunderbird or whatever you use.

    Kopete, Gaim, and Pidgin can all use the AIM and Yahoo messenger protocols.
    friends don't let friends use windows.

    installed ubuntu on 7 computers and going up

    SMS is SMS whether it's via email, or a IM.

    I send an email to my-10-digit-number@txt.att.net and I get the message immediately.

    If I send it via ANY SMS software, its the same thing.

    evolution --> SMS number (reply)--> evolution (Reply)--> SMS number

    IM --> SMS number --> IM --> SMS number

    Same thing
