There are people who still don’t feel comfortable with their phone’s key pads. The spread of virtual keyboards has just made things more complicated things for them. It took me nearly 3 months to start typing comfortably on the virtual keyboard of my new Sony Xperia. One good solution for such kind of people is sending SMS/MMS messages through their desktops/laptops. There are lots of online messaging services which can be used to send messages to phones. Many of them are free but come with ads linked to the messages you send. Premium online messaging services without ads charge you for the messages you send. But how about sending messages from your desktop or laptop using your very own phone number?
