    I am a former Verizon user and am disappointed that sprint does not offer a
    simple email address for text messages to cell phones. Verizon uses
    [email protected].

    Sprint uses [email protected]. This address is too
    long for people to remember and type correctly. Sprint should use an email
    address like: [email protected].

    That would certainly be a lot easier for people that send emails to your
    cell phone. I hope that someone from Sprint reads these emails so that they
    could possibly implement this suggestion.

    Yeah because when you are "MESSAGING" a "SPRINTPCS" phone
    it is so hard to remember the [email protected]"MESSAGING"."SPRINTPCS".com. It
    is not hard to remember and isn't hard to type out since you normally
    would be using the email-address form from a computer anyway.

    Believe it or not Sprintpcs' version is easier then some other carriers.
    Such as: @mobile.att.net
    @page.metrocall.com
    @message.alltel.com

    Nextel uses "@messaging.nextel.com", like Sprintpcs does. While T-Mobile
    uses "@tmomail.net" which like Verizon doesn't necessarily show that it is
    for a cellphone.

    The current address is fine and at least they provide it. If you are
    having trouble remembering the word "messaging" then might I suggest a
    sticky note?

    teleflip is very cool. I can send a message to any phone using the
    [email protected] email address.

    Can't those people save that SMS address to their phone books? I ask as I
    don't know, as I don't use SMS.

    On their phones, the address is unnecessary, since they simply send it
    to the phone number. No need for the "@messaging.sprintpcs.com" tail.

    I don't have a gripe with the length of the address. My gripe is with
    the character limitation of the messages that can be sent.

    That doesn't change from carrier to carrier.

    Then send an e-mail instead of a text message. Send it to
    <visionid>@sprintpcs.com.

    It sounds cool, but keep in mind that...

    vi) Teleflip does not monitor, review or control the content of the
    messages transmitted via the Service and has no obligation to do so, but
    reserves the right to do so at any time with or *without notice to you*.

    (vii) Teleflip may edit, remove altogether or refuse to send or deliver
    all or part of any message, which at Teleflipís sole discretion, is or
    could be in violation of these TOS or any applicable law.

    (viii) Additionally, Teleflip reserves the right, at its sole
    discretion, to add promotional messages and/or notices about the
    Service, the Site or related matters in all or some of the messages
    transmitted via the Service.

    ....and you are giving out your recipient's cell phone number to a third
    party. There's no way to know what that third party will do with that
    number. You have to trust that they will respect their privacy policy.

    I think I'll just keep a shortcut for messaging.sprintpcs.com on my
    Treo, thanks...

    This is how I do it. It works fine for me. Matter of fact, I have 4 phones
    on my plan and each has its owne-mail ID
    "visionid01"@sprintpcs.com
    "visionid02"@sprintpcs.com
    etc etc......

    True, but it would still be nice to be able to get longer text
    messages. For example, when wundgerground sends out a storm warning,
    you don't get much info in the allotted 160 characters. So I have the
    messages sent to my email account, which sends a text message to the
    phone, so that I can start Vision and and then get the email warning
    message. Rather inconvenient, but there seems to be no better
    approach.
