Just keep in mind that texting and emails are two entirely different things.

You need a service to do this, I think vodafone may offer it for their customers somewhere on their website but I don't think spark does.
Google "web to txt" and search through the results, there are some that are free but most are paid services.

Spark do, it's called etxt but it's a subscription service. We use it at work.

Just to clarify - an email from a PC to a mobile phone is still an email. A txt (aka msg) from a PC to a phone is a txt msg

Try this http://www.vodafone.co.nz/multitxt/

You could txt from a netbook / laptop. The netbook I've got here supports a sim card. All you have to do, is put one in the slot then install HP connection manager. I didnt actually try it myself, but the sim card does get detected / and gets recognised as an XT sim.

And does show the settings for telecom. And it did show messages / txts

Our son is a fish and game ranger and we used to send him SMS messages to his cellphone through Logitech, they went out of that business and of course Skype now charge for this service the bees @#%*.

Have a look at "mightytext"
It's an app.

Depending on your phone, you might be able to do it while tethered.
I used to have a nokia and through Nokia's software, I could txt people on my contacts list.

What type of phone do you have would be the important question.

You can use AirDroid to make your smart phone features appear in your browser so you can type a text on your computer - but it is still sent from your cell phone.
