According to this Support article: iChat: How to send SMS messages
One can do this. But the option File==>Send SMS in my iChat is not there. Nor do the keyboard shortcuts work. If I try to text someone not on an iPhone, I get the message that they are not logged into iChat. Has Apple crippled iChat? Or am I missing something basic here?
Is there still a way to Chat with a non Apple cellphone from a Mac?--
