Internet text messaging question for anyone.

I was wondering if anyone knows of a Linux (or otherwise open source) program that would allow me to send text messages to friends' cell phones, through the Internet. Command line or GUI, doesn't matter. I hit Google, but I think the search terms I used was wrong - I kept getting free messaging to UK numbers and the like.

Any suggestions?

Most phones allow emails, just email them from the command line using the mail command.
