I'd like to have my Raspberry Pi receive messages from my (i)phone.

This question is kinda the opposite of what I want. I want to send a text message (possibly to an email) to parse on my raspberry pi. I'm very new to raspberry pi but just ordered a wifi dongle.

After I receive the message I want to just output it onto a screen

Some carriers allow you to text an email address from a phone. After that it's a simple matter of having a ruby or python script check the email address for your text/command/whatever on a regular interval.
