More on texting from the Intenet

Of course you lose the flexibility of being able to text on the move, yet for texting from home it’s a very useful system. Be prepared to have a line of advertising attached to the end of your message though.

A couple of tips for sending texts from the internet.
Always sign your name. The messages don’t come from your phone, so the number doesn’t appear on the message. Let people know it is you who sent them.
People cannot immediately reply. As your number doesn’t appear, it isn’t possible for people to simply reply and send a message back to you.

Queueing. Sometimes messages via the internet take longer as they need to be queued. On very bad days this can take hours.
