You can send free text messages / SMS to cell phones in US and Canada from TxtDrop.com. The text messages will be sent from a website, over internet and it is totally free, the only requirement being you should have a computer which is connected to the internet.
Normally, the average rate for sending a text message to your friend or colleague comes up to around 25 cents / message (this may vary depending on your plan). Now if you are a student or someone who sends a lot of messages, this will start burning your pocket.
With TxtDrop.com, you can now send messages freely and when your friend responds back, you’ll get the reply on your email, the one which you would have provided while sending the message. It’s that simple.
All this can be done on one single page on the web, that is : http://www.txtdrop.com/

TxtDrop has evolved from web based service to dashboard widgets too. With the aid of dashboards, you can send messages directly from your desktop, but the replies will still be delivered to your email address. The desktop gadget is available for Windows Vista And Mac OS X as of now.
Another cool feature is that you can put up the widget on your own webpage or your social networking profile like MySpace, Bebo, Hi5 and Facebook. So you can say that you can send messages from sites like MySpace, Facebook Hi5 and Bebo and such. Use their HTML code generator and embed the generated content on any site you want 🙂
