Any ideas?

The 6255 (and CDMA phones in general) do not support this feature.

You can use Skype (but its 26c per SMS), or Telecoms eTxt product ($99 setup and $10 monthly, then 10c+gst to Telecom mobiles or 17c+gst to 021/029)

Telecom etxt has free setsup and 3 free months acess.

see http://www.telecom.co.nz/content/0,8748,201882-201461,00.html for more details

How much?

Get eTXT™ FREE* for 3 months - NO set up fee, NO monthly access, NO usage charges

If you're a Telecom 027 postpaid business customer you can get eTXT™ free* for 3 Months. Sign up for eTXT™ before 30 June 2006, and get FREE setup (usually $99 +GST), FREE monthly access, and FREE usage for 3 months.

After 3 months, the following charges will apply (all prices exclusive of GST):

  • Monthly Access fee of $10 per account.
  • 10c per message sent to each Telecom Mobile.
  • 17c per message sent to 021 and 029 handsets
  • If you send a group message from your Telecom mobile phone to shortcode 222 you will incur a charge of 17c plus the applicable charge per mobile you send to.

eTXT™ charges will be billed to your mobile account, so eTXT™ can only be purchased if you have a Telecom postpaid. There is no expensive software to purchase or difficult technical skills to master.

eTXT™ messages, by default, will bill to the primary mobile number that you nominate when registering for eTXT™.
