Im guessing that the fees are not the same as regular txt message though?

Yep, you'll pay more for an international text message. There are a number of firms offering PC to mobile SMS facilities but they usually charge you for a 'bundle' of texts.

Thanks for the help! Appears to be $.25 (USD) for a txt - OUCH!

Thankfully I only need to send one!

If you download and install gadu gadu, do a search if you dont speak Polish, as on the forum there are instructions on how to install there. When you have installed it you can send free sms's from there for free. post polishforums.com/translations_gadu_gadu-10_6710_0.html

Gadu Gadu download site gadu-gadu.pl/

You could also download skype and send sms to Poland for 6 cents and talk for 24 cents per minute when calling a mobile....believe it's cheaper when calling to a landline.

>> wow!! how cheap are you??

$0.25 for an international sms is cheap. In Canada, sms's are $0.10-0.25 too end in the country

i bet you don't bat an eye at spending $4 on a coffee at Starbucks

And i pay 0,5 zł for one message to Austria so its not so bad too;) Gadu gadu is good idea but u cant send texts for all operators. Im in Era and there for example its impossible.

It depends on the provider in PL. I always use sms.orange.pl
to send an sms from my computer and it's completely free.
