    Do you have a phone that supports applications? Maybe you can get a Twitter app and access your tweets that way. If your phone is not supported through SMS, it might be possible to have your tweets forwarded to you.

    Maybe you could use a service like Google voice to get a phone number, have your tweets sent to that number, and then have Google voice forward them to your phone. I'm not sure if this is possible or not, but maybe you can find a service capable of doing this.

    You could also look into Twitter customer service. Send them a message and see what they say.

    Twitter sends updates to your phone in SMS form for free but your carrier still charges you per text message, so make sure you have a texting plan (e.g. unlimited).Log into, go to Settings > Mobile to insert your phone number, and follow the steps to verify that the phone number does belong to you.Now when you follow someone on Twitter (say, CNN), you can click on the button with the cell phone icon that says 'Updates are not sent to your phone' (it's next to the 'Follow' button). After you press on it, it should now say 'Updates are sent to your phone'. You should be all set!
