txt 4 free plz

My wife and I text each other a lot throughout the day - enough that I go over my one zillion text per month limit. An upgrade to the next level (unlimited) would be $30/month. What's the best, most seamless way to get free (or very low cost) texting? I only need it to work between the two of us; I can use regular texting for others. [more inside]

I wish to cut the cord on my cordless.

I have some questions regarding MMS charges and the Facebook Messenger app. Between it and the upcoming iOS messages in iOS5 I would like to completely eliminate my texting plan (in light of AT&T's total dick move of eliminating the $10/month text plan-which I was going to move to after iOS5). I figure between Facebook and my iphone-owning friends, family, and girlfriend I should be 99.9% covered and I'll eat the per-text charge on the 2-3 a month that may slip by. I just cant seem to find a clear answer on one point, though: [more inside]

How do I send automated text messages to multiple recipients?

For a community health project, I need automated capability to send text messages to participants' phones based on a specified schedule, content and sequence of messages. The volume would be in the range of 100 recipients grouped into 6 or 8 different categories (each category would receive a distinct sequence of messages), with perhaps 2 or 3 messages per day to each recipient. Any suggestions?

OhDontForget to work on O2 in the UK...

A previous thread recommended OhDontForget.com as a way of scheduling text messages to be sent to one's phone. Though the site makes reference to UK cellphone carriers, tests to my O2 phone have not worked, and the site says it is "currently only working in the US and partly in Canada". Does anyone know of a similar service that functions in the UK?
