When ever I see stories like this I wonder if it's not an attempt to collect more data on their users and contacts for marketing purposes. You use this feature and suddenly you and your friends are getting text messages for cheap mortgages.
Yes, I know, about the privacy statements but, who reads them? I'd just rather ignore the service or feature.
Guess I'm just getting cranky in my old age.
T-Mobile at least has basically ahd this exact same feature for a long time. If your phone number is 123-456-7890, you can get emails as text messages at email@example.com from any mail service
Cingular and Verizon have it as well.
Testing right now.
Would you happen to know the format for Verizon? Tried a couple of different @xxxxx.coms
Sprint has had it for a while too. Sending a TXT from your e-mail provider is not new.
It has always been: [your-phone-number]@yourprovider.com
You can also send an AIM to any phone # - just send a message to +1[phone number] (the +1 is required).
I think it is @myvzw.com
