Anyone have an idea of how I can receive text messages, SMS, or MMS, in the USA, on my desktop? I see that Verizon/Sprint EDVO cards have SMS messaging features, but thats for a laptop. I have a linux desktop. I just want to give out my phone number and send/receive messages from my computer. I want to make an application with this feature. So I need an API or something that will work. Is there a cellular modem or router that has SMS text messaging features that will work with linux? Or if there is no hardware that will provide there maybe there is a web service that can provide an unlimited text messaging service. I see many with SENDing, some with Receiving Replys, but none with Receiving Messages that orginated from the cell phone user.
