My girlfriend is in Europe this summer where she'll have a GSM dumb-phone and not be able to do much more than make calls and text. However, international texting rates are ridiculous as you all know and I've been trying to think of ways for her to text for free (I'd be fine with my TB). My latest plan was to use Twitter to send @messages to each other. That way she only gets charged the local texting rate but I'll get a notification when she @messages me. However, Twitter does not have a 2 way short code for texting for her country, nor does it have a long-form code. I've googled around a bunch in the last 2 weeks, but everyone seems to say that 2 smartphones are the only way to get around this. Anyone else have experience with this situation or have any other ideas for me to try?
