I think its great that text messaging is being developed for LJ. Just curious if anyone has explored hooking up with a free sms messaging service like Upoc (which, by the way, allows you create txt/voice messaging communities) -- or if that option has been explored. I've been using it a number of months and like it. They claim to be "free forever", have toll free numbers and deliver audio/text messages on the web too.
Since on the LJ user info page there are IM, ICQ#, etc ... this may be another option.
