    T-Mobile let you send and receive email via text. You have an email
    address in the form of [email protected]

    More information here:

    or go to the website, select phones and services, email solutions.

    That doesn't actually answer the question asked. Do they provide email
    alerts..?

    Sorry, I should have been clearer.

    If you forward your email to [email protected] then you will
    receive the email as one or more text messages on your mobile. This will
    alert you to the email, but unfortunately you will also be charged for it.

    It might be cheaper to get web n walk, and tell your phone to check for
    pop2 or imap mail every few minutes, which if not always on instant email,
    will at least be frequent but slightly delayed email.

    Steve.

    Yes. You can select various options including an option to have only alerts
    sent to your phone (alternatively you can receive the email itself in text
    message format). The alerts are 10p each however and, obviously, the email
    text messages can cost more depending on the length of the email.

    Re: Moving to T-Mobile from Orange - can I still get SMS alerts?

    I've just moved from Orange (with text alerts) to T-Mobile Web'n'Walk.

    Current options on T-Mobile do seem to be either 10p per each text
    alert or get phone to check every few minutes (not a problem with
    Web'nWalk).

    In any case, attachment size limit on Orange is now way too low for me
    (emails with attachments were simply not getting through to me and
    being returned to sender).

    In other words, they *don't* provide *free* alerts, which is what the OP
    asked.

    Question answered, anyway..!

    Re: Moving to T-Mobile from Orange - can I still get SMS alerts?

    I rang Orange to try and find out this and was told to ring their 50p
    per minute number!
    I said, in that case, I hope they know the answer when I ring.
    I rang said number, answered by someone who hadn't a clue, could you
    hold the line please...
    Eventually, he came back with 'I think it's about 1 meg, but I'm not
    sure'
    When I wasn't too impressed with this lack of an answer, he said what's
    your problem, it's a free service anyway.

    I hope you got his name, that is worthy of a stinking letter to the Exec.
    Office, not that they will do anything of course, but it will make you
    feel better..!

    But Orange don't provide free alerts *reliably* for many people. ;-)

    provider..!) - works ok for me..!
