I would like to know how to email text messages to cell phones in Argentina.  I know that each carrier will have their own domain.  But I am just looking for a cheaper way to send text messages here in the country.

I assume you are using a Cell with a Foreign Contact as an SMS messages wont cost more than about $ 0,20with a local SIM...  If you consider this expensive then start hording some 'monedas' and sell them on the Black Market for 3 - 8 % more that their face value to subsidise your texting !
Found the following here: http://foros.3dgames...s-movistar.html

They suggest that Movistar charges the person that receives the message !!!

* La de CTI es @sms.ctimovil.com.ar
* La de Personal es @personal-net.com.ar
* La de Nextel es @nextel.net.ar

Si es @sms.movistar.net.ar el problema es que te cobran $0,12 por cada mensaje que recibis

Apparently for Personal email2sms feature is available only for business accounts. You can still send an SMS from their webpage:

This does not seem to work for my pre-paid Movistar number. It would be great if it did.
