…Earlier in the course, we covered text chat, and even…sending an SMS to someone while you're on a call.…But what if you want to just send a text message to a…phone directly, without being on a call or having the person on your contacts.…It's not complicated, but will cost you a few cents.…Let's take a look at how it's done. Open up Skype for Windows.…And click on the call phones icon here at the top.…I'll enter my own phone number, so we don't have to bother Shay again.…And now, instead of clicking on the phone, I'll click…on this message bubble, and this takes me to conversation view.…
I'll type the message that I want to send down here.…And hit enter.…You can even enter an emoticon in that message, if you like,…but most phones won't recognize it, so I don't bother with that.…Here you can see the charge that is made to my Skype account for this message.…It's currently 11.2 cents.…Now it always a good idea to identify yourself…in the text message, and provide your Skype name.…Since it won't show you up as coming from you.…
