Send Cheap Text To USA Subscribers

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -317919.96



This is the season to be jolly and spread the love and warmth of Christmas, so what better way to do this is to send a text / SMS message to your loved ones in the United States. But international texts don't come cheap. A single 160 character message to international users costs about P10 - P15. So you P300 prepaid credits would only convert to 20-30 messages. What if you could send as many messages as you want for just P1 or even FREE?

What most of us don't know, US-based mobile operators like Cingular and T-Mobile have an email address attached to their mobile numbers. Each email received on their mobile email address is immediately diverted to the subscriber's phone as a text or SMS message. All you have to do is send an email to their phones and presto! The following are the email domains by each provider in the USA:

Tested 100% working by me:

Cingular
[10-digit number]@cingularme.com
Example: 4251234567@cingularme.com

T-Mobile
[10-digit phone number]@tmomail.net
Example: 4251234567@tmomail.net

Untested:
Alltel
[10-digit phone number]@message.alltel.com
Example: 4251234567@message.alltel.com

Boost Mobile
[10-digit phone number]@myboostmobile.com
Example: 4251234567@myboostmobile.com

Nextel (now part of Sprint Nextel)
[10-digit telephone number]@messaging.nextel.com
Example: 4251234567@messaging.nextel.com

Sprint PCS (now Sprint Nextel)
[10-digit phone number]@messaging.sprintpcs.com
Example: 4251234567@messaging.sprintpcs.com

Verizon
[10-digit phone number]@vtext.com
Example: 4251234567@vtext.com

Virgin Mobile USA
[10-digit phone number]@vmobl.com
Example: 4251234567@vmobl.com

Now how do I send emails using my mobile phones?

Globe Telecoms Subscribers - you can use GlobeXTM, MMS, or a direct textmail to access number 2300. But Globe subscribers might be in bad luck since GlobeXTM is EXTREMELY unreliable and most of the time inaccessible and I don't know if their textmail service is still working. You'll be left with the P5.00 MMS method.

GLOBE XTM - P1.00 per message
Your mobile phone must be at least GPRS capable to access GlobeXTM. Each message sent costs P1 to any Globe subscriber or email address. To activate, just browse the myGlobe WAPsite and click Services. Follow the instructions on the succeeding pages and you'll be sending P1.00 international texts in no time.

GLOBE MMS - P5.00 per message
Globe MMS is also capable of sending MMS messages to an email address. But each message costs P5. Not bad compared to a P15 international SMS right? Again, your handset must be MMS capable to send an MMS. To activate, just send GO {handset model} to 2951 and save the settings. Once the settings have been saved and activated, compose a new Multimedia Message and enter the email address of the recipient(10-digit mobile number+service provider domain). Limit your text to at least 400 characters then send.

GLOBE TEXTMAIL - P2.50 per message
I don't know if this still works. Last time I've tried this was in December 2000. Compose an SMS using the following format: email address{space}(subject){space}message and send to 2300. Try to send a test email to yourself first.


SMART Subscribers - REJOICE!! Smart MMS is only P2.00 per message sent to any email address. They also have 2 other textmails working perfectly. Buddymail (powered by Chikka) and Smart TextMail.

SMART MMS - P2.00 per message
Activate your MMS by sending MMS{space}ON to 333. Wait for the confirmation message and you're ready to send international MMS to T-Mobile and Cingular subscribers for just P2.00. Same routine as Globe MMS, compose a new Multimedia Message and enter the 10-digit mobile number and domain of the provider. (@tmomail.net for T-Mobile and @cingularme.com for Cingular subscribers).

SMART BUDDY MAIL - P2.50 per message
To activate, send REGISTER to 409 and follow the instructions and the messages you'll receive. Registration is FREE. To create new email: Text TO{space}email address{space}message to 409. You can also check your Buddy Mail via their web facility. Click here

SMART TEXTMAIL - P2.50 per message
Registration is optional. To send a message, type in email address{space}(subject){space}you message and send to 200.

SMART INTERNATIONAL BUDGET TEXT - P0.70 - P1.00
This is not related to email but Smart Communications is currently offering a promo to all its Smart Buddy subscribers. Just send ITEXT {package type} {party's number} to 4090

Package A - P20 Good for 1 day with 20 texts or P1.00/text
Package B - P55 Good for 3 days with 60 texts or P0.90/text
Package C - P90 Good for 5 days with 110 texts or P0.80/text
Package D - P125 Good for 7 days with 170 texts or P0.70/text


SUN Cellular Subscribers - Bad luck. I don't know any TextMail service they're currently offering.

But since US mobile subscribers are gifted with mobile email addresses, you could always use your own email address and send messages for FREE! Gmail or other ISP provided emails are recommended than using Yahoo or Hotmail. Yahoo, Hotmail, and other free email providers tend to insert ads at the end of every message you send. You don't want those kind of trash to be included in your text right?

Special thanks to Salve-san for participating in my T-Mobile experiment :~)

Or they can use an alternative using LoadnTxt, a prepaid text messaging service between the United States and the Philippines. Registration of those in the US is required. Free registration. Free Trial.

Those in the Philippines need to inform their US-based contacts to register first.

Pls visit http://www.loadntxt.com for more details.
