I'm trying to find the way to send SMS text messages from a computer to a phone. It used to be that you'd send to a email address with the phone number as the first part of the address and some kind of sms email domain as the domain part of the address. I've got an iPhone but I don't use a data plan.
I'm going to be on a golf course tomorrow afternoon, and I'd like to have a friend keep me up to date on the WWDC Keynote. Does anyone know the email address domain for sending a text message to a Rogers phone?
Since the widger "Roger That" no longer works (Dashboard no longer supports cookies?), this is what you need to know:
People can send Emails as SMS to your phone by addressing them to (your10digitphonenumber)@pcs.rogers.com (or see the section on Alaises below). When you receive the SMS Email you will not see it as coming from their Email address. Instead you will see it as coming from +30500001 for the first message you receive per day, +305000002 for the second, +30500003 for the third etc.
Unless you subscribe to Direct Delivery (explained in Other Options section below) you will not get the message directly delivered to your phone. You will simply get the message alert from +30500001 and it will say that you have received an Email from (Their Name) and you will need to reply to that message with "r" (or "read") to have the message delivered to your phone.
After you reply with "r" (or subscribe to Direct Delivery) you will then receive the SMS Email. In the body of the message first you will see the name (not Email address) of who it is from, then the subject in parenthesies, and then the actual message. Because of the Sender and then subject being displayed first and the 160 character limit on SMSes you may only get 60 characters of the Email itself. Note: SMS Emails will NOT automatically string together as Regular SMSes do. You will need to reply to the message with "r" (or "read" to get the next 153 characters of the body of the message, you can then repeat as many times as necessary to get the entire body.
