Texting between Australia and UK?

Hi guys,
I hope to be off to Australia for 6-12 months soon. I was wondering if anyone knew of the best and cheapest way for me and my family in the UK to text each other while I'm out there?

I'm currently on O2, my partner is on Orange.

take an unlocked phone with you and get an australian simcard-they do deals for people on 6 month/one year trips-cant breakdown the exact cost unfortunately but I know its mega cheap-a few of the youngsters from work have done australia for a year and this is what they do.
Who is 'they'? The Australian phone networks?
well my best friend has been out in oz for this past 6 months. how he works it is, he took his uk pay as you go o2 mobile. Thats best for people texting him. So we text his uk mobile. He texts back via a cheap pay as you go australian mobile he bought over there.

Texts dont have enough speed and often just drop into the oceon.

Better use the telephone.
what about skype if you have access to a pc ?
try rebtel.
its a fantastic service and is probably much cheaper and less hassle!
(NB: thats for CALLING, rather than texting.)
For texting, probably an online server is best
