SMS text trough website
Hello all, maybe most of you didnt use that feature since we can do it all from the BB, but I had some people from overseas go to sprint.com and to bottom right you could go into sms messaging and send sms to any sprintuser - well now they removed that guest option since in order to send one you have to log in
well, the @messaging.sprintpcs.com worked perfect but it has to be done by email, do you guys know any website just where you enter the phone# and message and just send

Tried the txt2day and it looks ok, but apparently it delays the message since they have access to it
i dont use yahoo, and i was reading msn has that service too but the account who is sending the message has to be registered in the US

This is all we got from Sprint today for Tech reps. Trust me this change hurts some tech steps we use which sucks.
Due to a change at Cell Phones, Mobile Phones, and Wireless Calling Plans from Sprint we can no longer send anonymous text messages from our site. It now states that you have to sign in to prevent our customers from receiving anonymous unwanted texts. So, in an effort to continue doing what we do best please:
1. Ask for the customer’s permission to login into their MySprint and send a test text message.
2. See KMS: BMG Tool Overview (CDMA) | Technical Support
3. If you need to send a URL, use Metcalf. See KMS: Metcalf Intercarrier Messaging Tool Overview | Technical Support
yahoo and msn have the service, but not trough the website but instead from the messenger
I sent my self a msg 30 mins ago from txt2day and still waiting for it
thanks all for replying, hopefully we could find one

- Dear Gman,
Thank you for contacting Sprint. I apologize for the inconvenience you have experienced due to text messaging service on our website.
Earlier all the users were able to send Text Messages from Sprint.com without being online. Effective November 20, 2009 a change has been made to this service. In order to send a Text Message from the Web site user is required to first log onto the on-line account. We are receiving lot of feedback from our valuable customers like you to resume the old text messaging service.
We are working on all the suggestions received and considering all the situations we might resume the old option. Please keep checking our website for the latest information regarding this service. If you have another question or need additional assistance, please replyto this email.
Thank you again for contacting Sprint.

Just out of curiosity why would one w/a phone need that functionality on the Sprint site? Who are you annonymously texting?
BTW...it's still annonymous from w/in your acct if you're logged in. I had a customer call in complaining the other day. So for sh*ts and giggles I logged into my acct and text myself from the online text option and it came to me from 9066 that's all it said not my name, #, or anything of the sorts.

I bet it gets confusing though, when everyone knows everyone else as "that guy".
But then again, maybe you can get all of your "business contacts" to change their business email accounts to anonymous. I'm sure they'd be able to send an email, if they can get to a website to send an anonymous sms.
Unless you're worried about homeland security tracking your messages. Are you smuggling drugs or weapons into the united states? Are you part of a terrorist cell?
Hmm... I wonder how many key word it takes to get Homeland Security to take a look at what you're doing, and why anonymity is so vital in a "business relationship".

oh man haha, I guess the topic took a wrong turn, I never said whoever sends the message has to be anonymous! haha I just need a freaking website to send ME information via sms to MY cellphone
I'm pretty sure all the sms, emails and any other kind of data related is monitored so the last of my worries is the goverment reading on my quotes or prices
Yeah, I think too that is an answer telling me to sit and wait, but that service was good even though you guys dont think so
