Text messaging from the computer

Text messaging from the computer

I know that I can text a message using someone's telephone number from my email text messaging feature.  Does anyone know if I can use a telephone number outside of the United States to send a text message?  I have called Comcast several times, but it would appear that no one knew I could even perform that function.  Can anybody help me?

Thanks for the list.  All are great countries, just not one that I need.  My friend is in Laos near Vientiane. Thanks again for your quick reply.

Re: Text messaging from the computer

Thank you for your reply.  Now, all I have to do is find the list of the "40" other countries that I can text to without cost.  Can you help in this area.

Thanks again. I appreciate it.
