    Hi Bill,

    Congratulations on your new Q8 tablet and welcome to the forum. Nice of you to become a member of Android Tablets.

    You can can send a text message to a cell phone from your tablet/desktop/laptop by sending it as a text only email to PhoneNumber@SMSEmailAddress. (No special app, no 3G/4G, wired/wireless.) Just use your regular email program and contact list. (The subject is counted in the 160 character limit.) If they reply, the reply will arrive in your email. You have to know the phone number and the SMS Email Address of the carrier used by the other party. The SMS Email Addresses of many carriers, including Canadian and International, are listed here: The Complete List Of Text Messaging Email Addresses | EmailTextMessages.com

    Enjoy the forum and your tablet.
