How to Send Text Messages From Different Numbers

Sending a text message is a way to communicate a short message to a person without having to call. Perhaps you want to send a secret admirer message or play a harmless joke on a friend. Sometimes, you may encounter a person who you would prefer not to have your cell phone number yet you need to send a quick text message to. Instead of risking the person saving your cell phone number, you can send a text message using a text message website. Most of them are free and you will not have to disclose your information.
