Unlimited Text Messaging With your Data Plan !!!
 
Use these email address and you can get unlimited text just by paying for the data plan. Compose an email threw any of your email's setup on your phone. (I use my BlackBerry email) and use these email address to the person your sending a message to. They will recieve it as a text message. All they have to do is reply to your message and you get the message back as an email. NO CHARGE for texting !!!!!! Go to your address book, go to your friends name, edit, change email to wireless#@whateveraddress.com, compose an email to your friend and your all setup. Some of you guys might know this already but I just found this out and its working great. Hope it works for you guys as well.

but then you have to know what service they are using... what if they switch providers?


just use: <telephone number>@teleflip.com

much easier

Ralph714 10-06-2006 01:20 PM

so all i have to do is put the number@teleflip and it knows what phone to send it to ???

SMS via Data Plan for Vodafone UK
 
I certainly cannot work this out ....any help appreciated? I'm with vodafone in the Uk and if I "email" to [email address] I get an error returned.

This work in UK anyone know?? Or what am I doing wrong??

mrpg 10-28-2006 10:52 AM

Yea, vodafone UK for some reason uses USERNAME@--- and not NUMBER@---. Not familiar with vodafone so I dunno whats up with that...

I guess they probably wanna limit this people getting freebie SMS. Maybe subscribers wanting this option have to sign up online or something to get a username...

Call the Vodaphone tech support group. I'm sure they can give you the proper syntax.

Teleflip.com currently supports only North American mobile numbers: http://www.teleflip.com/support/supportmain.htm#faq3

Teleflip is the easiest way to send a txt message.

TheBigNewt 10-28-2006 01:29 PM

But if you don't have a txt plan everytime you get one back it costs you a dime unless everyone you txt with has a data plan and uses teleflip too. For $5/month you can do 400. I appreciate the technology, not the practicality. Does this really save you money?

CarlosO 10-29-2006 12:09 AM

dose this take a longer than a reg. SMS?

You joking - they help?! Wouldnt be in their interest, I just about get to makes calls through their network with no hassle!

On Orange UK - is it the same idea. if sending to an orange user, they need to have an account (user name) set up with orange or what?

packetknife 10-29-2006 07:22 AM

When they reply you get charged, and when you respond, at least on my VZW 8703e, it goes to their phone via SMS and not email-SMS so even a quick three or four message barrage you only save one SMS on. (Unless you choose the destination each time and add it to your address book for the most common ones.) -Pk

Yes. There are additional processing levels involved when sending through an email to SMS gateway.

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.

Interesting ... this is not at all how it works on my Bell Mobility 8703e. If I send an email to [email address] (or even to \"[email) it arrives at the destination cellphone as an SMS message with my email address as the return address. When the recipient replies the reply goes to my email address and arrives in my email inbox; it does not arrive as an SMS message.

From my end all I see is a series of short emails and from the recipient cellphone user's end all they see is a series of SMS messages. It's quite seemless when I use it.

TheBigNewt 10-29-2006 12:12 PM

If that's true you still need to pay for a txt plan, contrary to what the person at the top of the tread said. I'm confused!

If used properly then you should not need an SMS plan. When you send through teleflip.com or another gateway the return address is your email address. If the recipient replies directly to the SMS message that they have received then it should arrive on your BlackBerry as an email and use only your data package.

If, however, they send their reply to your mobile number then it will arrive on your BlackBerry as an SMS message.

Bear in mind, as well, that different carriers may transport the messages in different ways. A couple of test messages back and forth should be enough to verify exactly how the gateways function.

thanks but I have both unlimited sms and data :D!

I'll contact VZW and see if I've got something that can be set differently but it's not that way for me. :-/ Thanks though, good data.. I'll work it. -Pk
