Does iChat work with other users that are on other types of smartphones?  or only Mac iPhones and iMac Mail, Contacts, etc?

    Hi,

     

    The Messages Beta will Send iMessage to iPhones (Messages replaces iChat)

     

    iChat can SMS to phones

    It needs the computer to be listed as if it in the United States and contacting a Phone that is on a Carrier in the United States that is accepting SMS forwarding from AIM

     

    You list the Buddy as AIM and then +plus their number as in +123456789

     

    The computer can be made to "think" it is in the United States in System Preferences > International (or Text a Language in Lion) then Formats tab.

     

    The Phone has to be a US phone with all the trimmings about AIM's SMS forwarding.
