    Hello,

    I was wondering if someone could point me to a web page that lets you send
    SMS messages to a specified phone number? I currently do it from Sprint's
    'on-line tools' page -- which works fine --, but requires that I first logon
    to the Sprint site and make a dozen other clicks to proceed. I'm wondering
    if there's just a simple, free web page that can do this instead?

    I suppose some small Windows application that can do this over the Internet
    would work too.

    BTW, I'm in the US and only interested in sending messages to US phones.

    Thank you,
    ---Joel Kolstad

    If you want to hook your computer up to a phone line, you can use TAP. There
    are several programs like Notepage which send TAP messages to any TAP-capable
    cellular or paging carrier, and Sprint PCS is TAP-capable.

    I thought email went to <yourscreenname>@sprintpcs.com, and text
    messaging, short mail and now sms went to
    [email protected].

    >=20


    The "phone number" email sends the email into our SMS=20
    system. Your phone then receives the email as a SMS=20
    message.

    Yes, I was unclear. I meant you could send to the phone from an
    Internet email client (as opposed to a provider's web page form), but
    you are correct about the distinction in addressing.

    Yeah, NotePage's software is good it has failover and can send using TAP, SNPP,
    WCTP or SMTP really reliable. There is a free trial on their website
    http://www.notepage.net

    Best of luck
