When are we going to see a web-based SMS text message interface on My Verizon? I have heard rumours of this over the years and in the news, I don't understand why it's taking so long to put it out here for us. There are free services out there like Mobile-Sender.com and Sendhub that have this down to a science already... Google has made this available for free for over 5 years with it's Google Voice service and has a fantastic email-like interface for it.
Why hasn't Verizon been able to provide the same really cool web-based SMS services that these other companies offer for free??? Is it a legal issue? A demand issue?
Right, that's what's available now and has been for some time. But it only allows you to send a message and then track it with an ID. These services I'm talking about are fully-featured SMS management tools. They make sending and receiving text messages seem just like email. See video below for tour of Google Voice, which has been around for many years now...
