SMS Text Messaging
Sending SMS through email is easy. If you can be reminded through email, you can now be reminded through SMS.
Each SMS (in English language) is limited to
- 160 characters each message
- 15 characters in the subject line including spaces.
- 15 characters per line including spaces.
- 15 lines max including any lines that had rto be broken up.
If your message is longer than 160 characters it will be split into multiple messages. Better if you send your own split up with user-friendly pagination to identify the sequence. For example I might use -
Bourne MA 02532
Here are the email addresses for the 6 most popular cellular phone carriers
Virgin Mobile: email@example.com
SouthWestern Bell: firstname.lastname@example.org
where phonenumber = the 10 digit phone number
Cant figure out who the provider is?
This site: http://fonefinder.net/ only needs the first 7-digits and returns the cell phone provider.
This site: http://www.reversephonedirectory.com tries a reverse search. This site will not find a (people) listing for a cell phone number, but they will tell you the cell phone provider.
For ART Users
The text message option on the ART works like most other software' that have the same feature. You need know your outgoing (SMTP) settings and your cell phones e-mail address. (all phones that can accept text messages have one provided by the cell service provider)
SMTP - Outgoing mail service. Could be provided by your IT person or by the ISP (Internet service provider). If you are using your personal PC, call your ISP's Tech Department for that info.
Cell Phone's E-mail - all phones that can accept text messages have one provided by the cell service provider. You may have to call your cell provider for this info.
IMPORTANT!!!! - Make sure you are using the latest ART. The older version had some issues.
Here is a Screen shot of what your set up might look like. If your screen does not look like this, you will need to update.
