    Hey all.

    Does anyone know where I could get some virtual mobile numbers to get SMS sent to that?

    Looking for anywhere in the world - just don't want to be paying $100 set up fees.

    Ideas anyone?

    Cheers

    You could get a vodaphone broadband dongle. Set it up on your pc. It allows you to recieve texts on your pc. Get a load of free vodaphone sims and set up a sms account for each sim.

    consider configuring an open source sms server. those work out of the box.

    Google Voice?

    There's also another paid service called VoxOx.
    Never used them before, I know they have incoming text though.

    EDIT: SkypeIn also seems to support incoming SMS.
