Re: Message Encryption as a built-in feature?

[…]

A smartphone bitcoin client with options for encrypted messaging would make for a great alternative text/sms system compared to the high fees charged by most wireless carriers for text messaging.  Now, of course, I know of free text messaging apps, but they tend to contain ads.  But with bitcoin, the small transaction fees for passing the message along would work as a great incentive instead…

Theymos already said this…  ECDSA does not support encrypting messages.  Only digital signatures.
