Email through Texting


Here’s a quick tip you might not know. I know, you probably do . . . but if not, it’s super helpful. I was chatting with a couple of friends after church Sunday night. One mentioned he needed a super-expensive data plan to send emails from his Treo. I said, “Just send it as a text message.”

Evidentally, he (and the other guy) didn’t know that you can send a text message from your phone to an email address. Yep, just make the recipient any email address, type in your message, and viola, it sends right to them. I use it often to send myself reminders.

Conversely, if you want someone to send you an email to your phone, just use your phone’s email address. I believe you need a text message package in this case (and possibly for the above instruction). For example, with Cingular, just email the phone number with @mobile.mycingular.com (i.e. 5558768899@mobile.mycingular.com) and it’ll send right to them.

Hope that helps you to be more productive!
