    You sure can. It provides a variety of services. Voice Chat, Video Chat, and IM (instant message).

    I've never tried that, however I do know you can call a mobile phone using skype. When I said Instant Message, I meant from computer to computer. Not sure about the full capabilities skype has going from computer to mobile, but would be really interesting if you could.

    You can text messages only via Skype, but not a mobile for or anything of the kind.

    You can use chikka messenger if you want to send a text message to a cellphone, I don't really know about skype, I'll just use it for free calls.

    Of course you can. But you must have credits.

    Go to call phones, select country and enter number then click SMS at the end of the number keyboard and write your sms.

    I've used the text msg feature before with no trouble. I enjoy using Skype to stay connected with friend and family. I has a more personal feel than just talking on the phone.

    Basically almost all messenger programs have this option. With Yahoo messenger, you'll need to register your phone first to activate this option. But with Skype you'll need Skype credits for sending sms.

    I am agree with Arlind, you can buy skype card credit for you to make sms or call through phone, I've been using it for years especially to my relatives outside our country. But since i found chikka i never buy any credits at all since you can have chikka for free.

    There are thousands of sites which have options of sending text messages for advertising their business to anyone in their country . Skype and other websites have this facility in their region just go there , get registered and start sending text messages to friends or advertising.

    But you know, doing so without the owner's consent will be called SMS spamming.
