Google Voice supports this. You can have Voice forward text messages in Gmail or to another email address. Go to Settings -> Voice Settings -> Voicemail and Text tab, and you should see something like this: and there is a box after that to input any email address you want. I believe you can even reply to the SMS messages via email. However, Google ...

Since the suggestion page still lists Port a number to Google Voice as one of the options, that post is still valid. Google will remove it from the feature request page once they implement it. If you would like to increase the chances of this happening, submit a request for that feature. This answer is also under Google's control and will probably be ...

Skype button + skype forwarding to phone. Cost: you have to pay in packs of $10, but the call itself is 10ยข a minute. Telephone booth + slipped note. You know, like in those ransom movies. I wish I could say drop.io, but we all know what happens when Facebook comes around. Possibly the easiest and safest option is to buy a prepaid phone which'll run you ...

A quick search found a few options. CraigsNumber has either morphed into or merged with Numbr but it's not currently available. Too bad, as it looked spot on. iNumbr lets you get another number, but it's no longer a free service ($6.99/month). Certainly it's not for "throwaway" numbers, although you could use it that way.

Apparently, inumbr used to offer this kind of service (see this Lifehacker article), but this is no longer the case. Now they charge for all their services. There is a fairly simple alternative: Why don't you buy a prepaid mobile number and use it with an old mobile phone? Receiving SMS poses no problem. Over here in Europe they cost between nothing and 20 ...

It's been suggested to use Skype to do this. When you have to redial a number several times to make a connection, make the call with Skype. Skype has an automated redial feature and you can set the number of seconds (default is 120) between attempts.
