    You're going to hear a whole lot about how we don't do "real" sms.
    Regardless of whether that's true or not, you *can* send messages to GSM
    phones. But only with USA phone numbers. Our messaging system, Shortmail,
    only supports 10-digit numbers. I'm not even sure you can contact Canadian
    numbers. We have an inter-carrier agreement with T-Mobile, AT&T, Nextel,
    Cingular, and Verizon. I'm told messages get through to Alltel numbers, but
    I know we don't have a signed agreement with them.

    Apparently not. The five I've already mentioned are it. At least, those are
    the ones with whom we have agreements.

    Use e-mail.

    Anybody, anywhere can send a message to your phone using
    <number>@messaging.sprintpcs.com

    In response, you can send a message to any e-mail address anywhere from
    your phone using Java software like the SendNote application available
    from my website (http://www.apgap.com). As long as the recipients
    phone/pager/whatever has an e-mail address, you can send messages to
    it.
