SMS texting from Gmail now available
If you have a Gmail account, just click on Settings, and go to the Labs tab. Scroll down until you see "Text Messaging (SMS) in Chat" and select Enable and Save Changes. Then just type a phone number into the search box in the chat window on the left, then select "Send SMS." You can also select the contact you want to SMS first and then add their phone number. Associate a name with the number and it will be saved in your "contacts" folder so next time all you have to do is enter their name and start chatting.
