Mac Tip: Texting through iChat

Give me a standard keyboard – and I can type fast. Very fast!

If you’re like me, you probably have thought about how nice it would be to send text messages through your computer, instead of your cell phone.

With Mac OS X Leopard’s iChat, it’s easy.

Here’s how:
– open iChat
– select a buddy from your list.
note: your Address Book card for your buddy must have a mobile number included
– go to the menu Buddies > Send SMS
– in the new window – text away!

Leave the window open, and you can text back and forth.

That’s it! A simple, quick way to text.
