If you want to call or text a cell phone from your computer, then www.skype.com is a quick and easy way to do it.

All you need to get started is a computer with a built-in microphone and an internet connection.

Firstly, create a Skype account. It is free and only takes a minute. Click ‘join Skype’ at the top right hand side of the website.

Then when prompted you will need to download and install Skype to your computer. It is a totally safe and legitimate website and shouldn’t take long to do.

Once you have done this you will need to login to your Skype account and buy some credit. You can either buy pay as you go credit or if you think you will be using Skype on a regular basis then you can subscribe for even cheaper rates.

When you have done all this, then start up Skype on your computer and select ‘call phones’, which is located at the bottom left.

This will bring up the dial pad, so now all you need to do is type in the number you want to ring and press the green call button.

It is also possible to write an SMS text using your computer keyboard and send it via Skype.

Skype is great if you don’t have a mobile phone or if you want to speak to someone abroad without the huge bills. You can also use it to call other people on Skype for free.

I only know how to text someone who has a phone with my computer. To do so you need to know what kind of phone they have (sprint, att, t-mobile) etc.  First off open 2 internet explorers, go to the website for the phone your designated person has.  Ex.  If they have At&t  go to  www.att.com search for:  Send a message
it should be the first one and it will give you instructions from there.
