No, not really. The easiest way to send SMS (text) messages to cell phones that I know of is simply to email them to
Code:
YOURFRIENDSCELLPHONENUMBER@teleflip.com

So, if your friend's cell phone number is 212-555-1212, just send email to 2125551212@teleflip.com, and it will appear on their cell phone as a text message. If they reply to your text, it will be sent to your email.

You can read more about it here.

Well, I have no idea how to send them (other then the above post)...
But I'm pretty sure you can receive them.
Because if you send a text message from your cell phone to a regular land line (don't know about magic jack,
haven't received mine yet),
their phone will ring, read the text message for them and give them the option to reply with a voice message.

... At least that works here in Canada.


Try it out.
