    I just got a Sanyo 8100, and on my new Vision plan I'm supposed to get 100
    SMS text messages a month.

    So what I want to know is: what's the difference between a Short Mail and a
    Notification? I've used one of the upload services to upload wallpaper to my
    phone, and it sent Notifications to tell me where to download from. I
    remember seeing a message that said for the time being I could receive
    unlimited Notifications, but I think it was the introductory mail on my
    phone and I erased it.

    So can someone explain the difference to me, and tell me if I was correct in
    what I saw about unlimited Notifications?

    i have a 8100 too,
    and although i'm just guessing, since i've only had this
    thing for 3 days...
    i think a short mail is something (psuedo-email) sent from
    another 8100 (?) that you know... like a wife or such...
    while a notification comes from sprint...?
    pcs mail...is ??? normal email...
    i just sent myself one from my 'bigbox' and
    apparently...!!!...it didn't notify me when it came in to my
    phone...!!!... so you'd have to manually check that from
    time to time...
    also... apparently i'm already getting spam.

    No, it's text message from any SPCS phone, not just an 8100.

    > while a notification comes from sprint...?


    It can come from anywhere. SPCS, Yahoo, MSN, AOL, or any other service you
    might set up with anyone else.

    Unfortunately, SPCS hasn't installed any Spam filtering software on their
    email server. Best thing to do is change your settings so that you don't get
    email notifications on your SPCS phone.

    Returning to my original question, tho, do Notifications count against my
    allotment of 100 text messages per month with the standard Vision packs?

    From what I understand, it all depends on when you signed up with the Vision
    option. For yours truly, it's unlimited. You might want to call CS and see
    what they say.
