SMS By Email

Comments

A lot of you already know how to send a text message through your Blackberry, but did you know SMS can be sent through email for free? Services like @teleflip.com are very popular for this very reason, where you would send your text message by emailing phonenumber@teleflip.com. One drawback to @teleflip.com is that their service seems to be limited to North American carriers. So we found the mother of all list for SMS by SMTP, which lists carriers from all around the globe.

We do have to mention that while the SMTP protocol is popular, it was not designed for paging and as such it is not time sensitive, there can be delays in the reciept of the email depending on the routing (this does not have anything to do with the software but the design of the protocol). When you send a SMS by email, don’t be surprised that it may take a few hours for your message to arrive on your recipient’s phone.

    Hi there,

    Does this mean that you need to disable any part of the phone, so as not to incure roaming charges? I am going To NYC from Vancouver, and wanted to try this service, but afraid that my e-mail service would be subject to roaming?
