Can I send a text message from my ipod touch to my brother cell phone? Not an email but a text?

There are lots of websites that allow you to send text messages to cell phone users--most cell carriers provide such a web page.

I'd assume you could go that route for sending on your touch. Just via Safari.

Obviously you can't *receive* a text, but the sites usually allow you to enter an e-mail address to which you want any text replies sent.

I used to use the AIM client. You need to setup a buddy with their cell number. For example, if their number was 202-555-1212, you'd setup a buddy named +12025551212

BTW, they can reply back, and you'll get their text

Using the email to SMS interface that pretty much ALL cellular providers have would be more efficient. You'd get push notifications of received emails without having to go to the SMS app to check. I send SMS emails to my lovely wife all the time.
