Chapter 3. Wireless Annoyances > CELL PHONES AND THE NET

CELL PHONES AND THE NET

FROM EMAIL TO CELL PHONE

The Annoyance:

I want to send a text message to my daughter using my email program. I know that the email address is her phone number, followed by a certain domain, but I can't remember the domain name. We're living in the age of communications—there's got to be some way to do this!

The Fix:

Traditionally (namely, until a few months ago), to send someone a text message, you had to know her cell phone carrier's domain—and they're seldom obvious. To send email to a Cingular user, for example, the domain is mobile.mycingular.net. But technology soldiers on. Thanks to Teleflip, now all you need to send a message to someone's cell phone is that person's cell phone number. Just send an email to cellphonenumber @teleflip.com, where cellphonenumber is the person's cell phone number. The service is free, although the recipient will probably have to pay to receive the message. For more details, go to http://www.teleflip.com.
