Another thing you can do in your Emacs is to send SMS messages using the Diamondcard service.
Emacs module provided by courtesy of Yoni Rabkin firstname.lastname@example.org

The latest version of the code will always be available at: http://yrk.nfshost.com/repos/diamondsms/diamondsms.el
It is also accessible via the Darcs revision control system:

The code is in preliminary status right now, but I intend to develop it more as time goes on (I'm already expecting patches from two other developers who like the idea of sending SMS' via GNU/Emacs).
