I hope this doesn’t catch on. Until recently, I paid for text messages, and there’s no guarantee I’ll continue to get free SMS in the future. If I wanted someone to text me on my phone, I would give them the information to do so myself.

misty

works great for those that cant afford a land line and only one cell phone this way i can at least get a hold of someone if a emergency happens

Maria

I totally agree with you Misty.

Claire

Hey Mindy, Like why don’t you like say like one more time. Like it’s totally like not annoying.

Anyone with a cell phone who knows your cell phone number can text you without you wanting them to. Knowing how to do it via email doesn’t change that really:)

One more tip for BPL users in India……
This is really good trick that I use…..

Email alert:
The moment you get an email you can get an alert on your mobile phone. This is how it works:

If you have a gmail ID (that’s what I use, hence am giving that example) go to “Setting” in top right corner. Then go to “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” then select “Forward a copy of incoming mail to” and put in your bplmobile email address…. that is 98xxxxxxxx@bplmobile.com (replace xs with your BPL mobile number). Now Save changes and enjoy!

Try sending an email to your gmail account through some other account, not through the same gmail account, and you will get an sms with brief details of the email. Have fun :)

Aibek

Thanks for a great tip. I might tell others about it in coming articles

Tufail

Please help me anyone for email alert on vodafone india

Tim Lenahan

I once had set something similar to this up. I wanted to be notified via SMS whenever my wife emailed me. In gMail I set up a filter to forward any email from her address to my cell phone’s SMS address. I could then head to my email box to read the actual email.

Reply

Alan

Totally agree with Kenneth. I do use this to txt my wife, who’s plan I know has unlimited text. Just easier when I am at work and I know she’s on the road or away from a computer. Verizon is the service and it works great. I don’t think I would just text people that I don’t already normally text and get texts from – I mean, you have to know the carrier to use this – I don’t generally know someone’s carrier unless I have talked to them about phones or if we are already texting each other.

I use to use this method to forward all my gmail to it on my enV verizon phone. The mobile email client on that phone was awful and by setting up my gmail this way was like ‘push mail’ to my cell. It also only sent one txt and not the full email, so it was more so a preview and if I wanted to read the rest I could just go to my gmail on the phones browser.

This is very handy for me when my husband stops by Super Walmart and asks if I want him to pick anything up while he’s there. He’ll forget something if my list is more than 3 items, so I’ve been texting him a list. Even though I have T9, texting a shopping list is a pain, and most times I’m near my computer, so I’ve been emailing the shopping list to him since I learned about it from another tech blog (whose list of servers wasn’t nearly as detailed as yours LOL). We didn’t do this very much at first, so I didn’t arrange to have unlimited text. But since Ike, I decided to pay the extra $5/month to ensure I’ll be able to communicate during any major power losses.

But, although this is convenient for me at this time, I share concerns with Kenneth and Alan. It would be so easy for spammers and marketers to rig something up to send spam texts, which are annoying, but for people that have to pay for each text msg, it will cost them in addition to being annoying.

I’m not pleased with my default T-Mobile options that either don’t have blocking capabilities, or maybe they’re buried so deeply that I haven’t found it yet (I’ve been through my menus many times, and have never found blocking options). I’d love for phones to give options similar to IM programs, where only allowed people could call, text, or send photos.

If those options are available with some unlocked phone hacks, I’d LOVE to read about it here 8^)

Matt

Log on to the My T-Mobile site and under the My Account menu select Change Services. Under Messaging, there should be options to block certain types of messages. If you have a messaging bundle, it will only block messages that would otherwise be charged, such as international messages or messages over your bundle allowance.

Don’t think they have options that would allow you to only receive messages from certain senders, though.

I think this list is old, Argentina companies are different now: Movicom is now Movistar, and CTI is now Claro, so I think they should be changed their email addresses.

It’s a good idea to sign up a gmail account, like andrewsphone@gmail.com and have it forward all your SMS’s to your [10digitnumber]@xxx.xxx.xxx email listed in the above post.

That way its both easier for people to remember, and it hides your cell # from people you don’t want to have it.

Just go to Settings in GMail and go to Forwarding and set it up there.

I just did it, and it works.

magnoliasouth

Actually you’re making it much more complicated than you need to. You don’t need a new account because you can just tell your friends to email you at yourgmailusername+phone@gmail.com and then set a filter to forward those to your phone.

That’s actually a brilliant idea and I think I’ll do just that!

Does your email ring you to let you know it’s waiting, while you’re not connected? You don’t ever text anyone? The difference between email and SMS are big. This is all about quick messaging without having to log into email and wait for connections. There is NO way my husband is going to check his email several times a day just in case I’m going to send him this quick email message: “Get bread please.”

I hear you on this and so far I don’t know of a way for it to alert me on my phone. (palm680).
I want to use email as I have unlimited data.
But NOT unlimited TXT and everyone in the world..(LOL it seems..) seem to “THINK” I have TXT messaging on my plan.

Vous avez du courrier, mais n’etes pas abbonne. Repondez “ouio” pour vous abboner.” — which basically says, “Welcome to the Email SMS service from Rogers. You have mail, but you’re not subscribed. Please reply YES to subscribe.”. What a scam. They don’t even bother to tell you how much the useless service is.

I would like to know that one myself :D I’m interested in both Telekom (aka MTS) and Telenor for Serbia!..

If anybody can help, I would really appreciate it. And just to mention before somebody copies some old information, Mobtel doesn’t exist anymore… It has been replaced by Telenor.

Thanks

Here’s a tip. Sign up for a new yahoo mail account specifically for sms. I entitled mine simply like sms.name@yahoo.com. Since yahoo mail has push, you basically have the capability of sending sms via email and get notified immediately when there is a response :) So far so good.

The email to Boost is NOT SMS – it is MMS. This is an important distinction, because Boost users that have the $1/day plan don’t pay for SMS, but DO pay 25 cents per message for MMS!

Found a link to this post on http://www.fredshead.info . I have used this service with a neighbor friend and it works. At first I told him not to text me back since I can’t read those messages on my phone, but he texted me back a couple weeks ago and I got a copy via email. Love this service! It did not seem to work when I tried texting myself, because my message bounced back.

Hmm, I’m wondering if the easiest way to find out if your SMS provider has an email gateway is to text a message to your own email address and see what address it comes from. Shouldn’t that work?

Can The Person Ur Txting Txt U Back ?

Kiwi

Yes they can, I’ve been “texting” a person in texas (from New Zealand, that doesn’t matter though) and she’s been texting back for about a month now.

You can even add the person to your contact list.

Don’t ask about pricing though, the person I email has unlimited texts so, I don’t know how much it costs per text to text an email address.
