I disagree. The carriers are the ones who have put these email to SMS gateways in place. Buy creating an easy to use method for users to email cellphones it stimulates additional SMS traffic from the recipient. I have many clients who use these gateways to send SMS messages to their employees through their desktops. If the remote worker replies that's SMS traffic on our network and money in our pockets. It would be counterintuitive for carriers to create the gateway but not assist their customers with its use.
