Someone on a2k told me how to text while not having a text phone, and I'm sure I saved that message, but it is either deep in my present Files links, or I lost it in one of my computer crashes.
I wanted to know how in order to chat with my busy niece who back then pretty much avoided computers. Now we can do email, so I haven't worried about texting lately.
I'll report back if I can find that old information. I think Sozobe may have been the one to tell me how to do it (so smart, that woman).
