How can I have Google Voice send my SMS to an instant message service such as Google talk?

I have no text messaging plan, however I have a google voice account. (Formerly Grand Central). I also have the chat in Gmail and an AIM account. I have an app for my iPhone beejive IM which thanks to 3.0 can now push my messages to the phone.

So. If there is a number I can forward the SMS messages to which will send them to my GTalk chat or an AOL im screenname, I can then be notified instantly, instead of having to check the website for texts.

Googling turned up something about a 406 number for GTalk but I cannot find the info I apparently need.

Thanks!!

(No, I don't have any Google Voice invites, they're not doing them. Sorry :( )

The gtalk SMS feature has been disabled for who knows how long, as of a couple days ago.

Okay - if Gtalk is out are there any other services that let you forward texts to something like AIM?

Did I seriously miss it by just a few days? *headdesk*

Thanks
