Nice idea but it's infinitely easier for me to do this with iChat.

1. Click the little "+" symbol in the bottom right of iChat.
2. For the screen name enter the destination phone number in this format "18005551212".
3. Click ok.
4. Send a message to that user.

Does this only work for US numbers too?

Does this work for everyone else? I've tried adding a buddy in this format in iChat and in Adium (my IM client of choice), and neither one will allow it... am I doing something wrong? Do I need a newer version of iChat? I'm running v2.1 on Panther.

What plus on the bottom right? I just see one on the bottom left.

And do you enter it as an AIM buddy or .Mac buddy?

I tried it (clicking on left +) and entering it as an AIM account number, and it gave me an error.

Please tell us every single thing you have to do in order.

Those are great directions (NOT). Try these instead:

To be clear, this is not a feature of iChat, but a feature of the AIM network. In other words, you're not limited to iChat; you can do this with quality IM clients like Adium.
