<br>sites, you can send text messages for free. Perhaps not as convenient<br>as Skype, but since the N8xx has a web browser, it should work just as well.<br><br>Good luck!<br><br>Ryan<br></blockquote></div><br>Cannot find free messaging on my service provider's site Virgin Mobile UK. I am unlikely to change provider simply to use this service. It looks like some other service providers offer this service -
e.g. Orange UK, T-Mobile etc. - but as I don't have a telephone number with these providers I cannot register on their websites to use the service! If you know a way around this minor inconvenience please let me know, or better still, why not post some web addresses where free messaging is available - I am sure we are all interested!
<br>Skype is an excellent tool on my desktop - shame it doesn't have this feature on the M810/N800 version.<br>Cheers<br>J<br>
