    Yes you can..
    All you need is the Cell Phone Company text service name.
    Verizon = @vtext.com
    Sprint = @messaging.sprintpcs.com
    T-Moble = @tmomail.com
    AT&T = @txt.att.net

    You will need the cell phone number.
    Then just send a email.
    Like: 1112223333@vtext.com
    it will send a text to the cell phone
    and when they reply it will come back to your email..
    Hope this helps..

    that assumes you know the cell phone company of the recipient.

    The other option is to use a company like twilio - but there is a cost involved - think it is around 3-4c/text

    tctlocal.com is the service I use with great support for API's and integration.

    Only just seen this thread
    I use Twilio for both text & voice messages.
    There is a cost but it is more reasonable than some other providers.
    Both their API documentation and support are excellent

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
