Text Messages

I seem to have the setup to send text messages via my iMac, but when I type the text message, put in the phone number to which it is addressed and hit 'Send' I get an 'Can't send' error message. I don't have a smart phone, and my flip cell phone takes forever to type a message. Is it possible to do what I'm trying to do?

Re: Text Messages

I'm not sure, but from what I've read, the Yosemite text messages are sent using an iPhone.
