Although Linux is wonderful and free, it doesnt mean you can do everything with it like making free calls,washing dishes,cutting your hair etc.

I know that :-))
But on the internet there are services, that offfer sending SMS to anyone with custom "FROM" field (such as thesmszone.com).
And i think, that they are not paying for internationals SMSes... But maybe i'm wrong.

I doubt there are international SMS's. Not even Skype has that. But I thing ekiga offers SMS messaging.

did you know?
many mobile companies tend to offer sms through email. for eg. in my case a person can send an email to 9849xxxxx@airtel-ap.com (where airtel is my carrier and 9849xxx is my mobile number) and I will get the mail as an sms on my mobile. so you can sms that way, it was a cool thing to know.
or try textarabia.com
