Addict Mobile Mail

Out of town? No Internet Cafe in sight? Don't fret! Activate your Mobile E-mail account in 1 easy step. Get your e-mail messages (even those with image attachments) on your mobile as text or MMS. Stay connected wherever u r (except for Mars). Text AM to 382.
Aba! Posting via MMS to blogger works! ...

I just took a chance and forwarded Check mail while at the beach? check out the babe nalang .... the above MMS message to my mobile blogging e-mail address. I wasn't expecting it to get through because it didn't work when I tried it three weeks ago.

This time the message got posted. But the attached MMS image was not included in the mobile post. I'm adding it manually now .... -->

Two things I learned from this experiment:
1.) MMS to mobile blogging on blogger works (for text only)
2.) My request to Smart to stop all broadcasts did not work
Will I use Addict Mobile Mail? Unlikely. I've got Brosia and Gmail on my phone.

Nyahahhaa! I ate my words! I just got an SMS. It turns out I DID use some sort of SMS-to-e-mail service of Smart. The message said:
From: 200
Due to inactivity for 28 days, your TextMail acct ********@my.smart.com.ph can no longer rcv email. You may set-up a new TextMail acct any time.
Right. But again, unlikely.

    emman! long time no hear!

    negative po - not gmail smtp. I use myrealbox.com smtp/pop servers. myrealbox is currently closed to new accounts.

    Theoretically, you can use *any* smtp, pop servers. I haven't tried gmail servers. balitaan mo ako kung na-configure mo ang gmail sa smartphone mo.

    try also:
    smartphone e-mail configs on Airfagev forums
