Does your mobile phone service provider charge an exorbitant amount when you send SMS messages to your friends or are you simply in a habit of sending scores of SMS messages to your friends and colleagues? Primarily there are two reasons why you would find it preferable to send SMS messages using services like the Yahoo messenger or the iPhone: you can send SMS messages for free and it is easier to type text using your standard PC or laptop keyboard rather than using the tiny phone buttons (at least this facilities is there when you use the Yahoo messenger to send SMS messages).

Sending SMS messages from your Yahoo messenger is actually quite easy. Whenever you are creating contacts in your Yahoo messenger you add their mobile numbers too.
