Ask Us! How To SMS

10 Comments

Johny asked us,

I just recently bought a 7520 Blackberry. I can receive SMS text messaging but can not reply. Am I doing something wrong??

Blackberry 7510 and 7520 are unable to send out SMS, but don’t worry Johny there’s still hope. Remember your Blackberry is an emailing machine, what you do is email phone#@teleflip.com, ie 4165554444@teleflip.com as per an earlier article we wrote on teleflip.com. It will automatically route your email to the appropriate carrier then phone. The only drawback is that you can only SMS North American phones.

    I still can’t stand not getting sender information for incoming SMS messages on this model. Is there any fix yet?

    I found an even cooler site called http://www.enotifyme.com it allows me to convert my email to voice (email to phone) and listen to it on any landline or mobile phone and I can reply by voice back to the originating sender :) They also allow ‘cascading’ so I can selectively have emails reach me at home, then on my cell as a text message, then at the office and so on – kind of the ICQ version of what teleflip’s 1 trick pony approach is about.
