Hi,
I am trying to work out how to text to the telecom phones (CDMA). There appears to be any amount of SMS services available for GSM or vodaphone in NZ however I have been unable to find one that supports this from a PC??
Does anyone have any idea on this?
Thanks in anticipation

I believe Telecom have a service from the djuice site, but it costs, and you need to register (so assume you need to have an 025/027x phone account?)

Just log onto http://www.telecom.co.nz and follow your nose, you will find the site.

Thanks Godfather. Yes indeed I have registered and used this service now. It is funny that there seems to be endless amounts of GSM services out there but no others for CDMA! monopoly again I guess.

Thanks Richard

not true.
CDMA and GSM are two competing standards in the world. Aside, Japan is the exception using J-Phone and Docomo by themselves.

CDMA is jus a shy less pop as GSM. Typically few asian ones use only GSM. Korea only uses CDMA and the N. America uses both ....... Free texting is not a NZ product its a international product ie... ICQ (GSM) and others.
