Hi everyone,

I recently bought a 2degrees sim for my cheap phone (basic phone, no 2G/3G) and I'm wondering if 2degrees has a SMS gateway that I could use to receive my emails (or at least, sender name and object in txt format) to my mobile phone.

If not, what 3rd party gateway would you recommend?

Any help is welcome :) 

Thanks!
Nicolas

why not just get the IDEOS (second hand but virtually new for about $100) and then get automatic notifications of your complete emails that way?

[as anyway txts are restricted to 160 char]

Thanks dman,

But I'll need to use the 3G network to get the notifications on the IDEOS, right?

I actually don't need the body of the email, only the sender name and object would be enough...

Mobile data operates on 2G as well. Just slower, but would be fine for emails.
I find it more effective to quickly check the subject or body of short emails on my android phone even when im sitting at a PC, a swipe and a few taps at the most.

Thanks.

I've seen a few websites that offer SMS gateway. But nothing seems to be working properly or it's too expensive.

Any ideas? 

Thanx :)

like the other guy said, even dropping down to 2G you will be fine for just checking email headers because that is a tiny tiny tiny amount of data we're talking about

where do you live (roughly) in NZ?
