    No and yes.


    iChat Can contact Cell/mobile Phones in the United States on Carriers that support SMS forwarding  when set up as an AIM Buddy (and the Computer is also set as if it were in the United States.)


    IF the person is using AIM on their Phone you can contact them.


    Other than these more workaround ways the answer is in fact No.
