Well me and a friend (friend over msn lol) are working on a sms sender (no not bomber and will not publish one), He's in the states and we have been able to find out the address's quite simple but with New Zealand Providers I can't seem to get it.

I haven't got credit on my phone at the moment to send a text message to my email too actually check so i was just wondering if you guys had or know of a link with the address.

I know it will be something like 6427*** ****  or something similar.

Also if you guys can figure out the mms, and other service providers we can add it too the application so once it's published will be useful to any user.

Cheers in advance,

It's however this is NOT a free service, and I doubt you will be able to send anything to that address with out subscribing to eTXT.


EDIT: hyperlink added

There are no free services in NZ.

Telecom don't have an address allocated by default but you can sign up for the eTXT service.

Vodafone have one that costs 20c per message to receive.

So after 3 posts you know who to listen to on a message board? I think you will find nzbnw works for telecom (and seems to be right more than not)....
