I have a Black Berry 7100t. Obviously, my service provider is T-Mobile.
I have been playing with various ways to send SMS through email and vice versa.
All T-Mobile 7100t's, and perhaps other Black Berries seem to have 3 possible email addresses which can be used to send SMS messages to the phone.
That is, someone can send an email to any of these three addresses, and it is sent to your phone as an SMS.
Given the phone number 9545551234, the three addresses would be:
All three seem to work and get to the same place, that is the SMS of 9545551234.
What I observed, is that when the SMS is received on my phone, it has a return SMS number that is 3 digits long, and starts with a 5, in the form of 5XX. I tested this using an account on my computer. I decided to reply to that 3 digit number, and discovered that I could send a reply to the sender via that 3 digit number.
The problem is, that I could not initiate an exchange. An email had to be sent to my cell phone first so that a 3 digit short SMS number could be generated.
Then, I discovered this website: http://www.oeoe.fi/testsms.html
Basically, if you send an SMS to +358 40 517 4761
and have the text of your message have the form of:
in body of message
That body of the message will be sent as an email.
The only problem is the recepient cannot reply back to you.
I hope others try this and experiement and come back and share their results.
