Instructions on How to Send Text Messages From Gmail
Start by clicking on "settings" in the top right corner. Now click on the "labs" tab on the far right.
From here you'll have to scroll down until you see the lab program called "Text Messaging (SMS)" in Chat. Enable this Lab and click "save changes" at the top or bottom.
Now simply enter the number in the chat field you wish to dial, save that person as a contact, and type in your text to them. Hit enter when complete. If you already have a contact with their mobile phone entered, you can simply select them and proceed the same way.
