Have the person in Switzerland to send a text to your email address. You then have their email address for their phone. Add the email address to your address book as an email address. Now make your text message and then select their email address and then hit send. All Verizon knows is that the text message is going to an email address. Standard text message rates should apply.
I send text messages from my phone to my email address all the time, so I don't forget to do things. Must be because at 50, your CRS kicks in.
Verizon does not support text messages to or from Switzerland. Can anyone suggest anyway to do this? A search shows an SMS forwarding service called Ipipi. Anyone heard of it or have any experience with it? Is there a free service that does the same thing? Thanks.
