Email to SMS- Is it possible?
For my first, very no0b-ish post on this fine site, I'd like to inquire about the possibility and directive behind email to sms messaging.
The background- Having finally joined the smartphone, and BB crowds, I felt compelled to utilize my BB email as much as possible. But, unfortunately for me, too many (read: all) of my friends lack smartphones and therefore any messaging but SMS.
I've tried to send a email to their "email" SMS account (ex- firstname.lastname@example.org) and they receive a message that contains nothing that I wrote whatsoever. They do receive a message from me, but usually it just contains some gibberish that speaks of my email account and having sent the message from my BlackBerry. Only rarely, on very short messages, are they able to see the message- and even then, it is sporadic. Most regularly, if I have typed over 160 characters, they get either the 2/2 or 3/3 message, but not any of the previous ones. It's really weird, and a frustrating problem for me because I'm so interested in getting my BB experience off the ground.
So, I'm not sure if it's possible for me to stay away from SMS texting and use my email messaging instead- even to send messages to an SMS user. I figure if it is possible, then someone on this esteemed site might be able to help.
Any offerings are appreciated- B
