Send SMS Messages to Cell Phones Using Email

If you know somebody’s cell phone number, you can email them SMS messages thanks to a new service.


Previously I have discussed how to send SMS messages with AIM.

Elric428 over at fatwallet.com describes a new site that allows you to use email to send SMS messages to any SMS-capable phone.

Teleflip.com now provides this wonderful service. To use teleflip just email the SMS message to the following email address:

1112223333@teleflip.com

Just replace 1112223333 with the cellphone number that you want to receive the SMS message.

With this service, you no longer have to remember the complex email format that each individual cell company uses. Remember that many cellphone users are charged for incoming SMS messages… so be polite.

    Hi Alex I talked to Vincent and he said right now it’s a bad time and really he can do nothing as you had told me earlier. He also says thingshave changed drastically and his company has become more complex than before! So keep asking him but don’t pressurize him
