I Know the Iphone does not support MMS (it's too hard for them?)

I have heard that there is an e-mail or address assigned to every mobile and if you know what it is you can e-mail to that address and it will go to the recipient as a txt with the photo????

Anyone know anything about this?

I bought the Iphone for my wife on Friday.  She is by no means a power user (does not even have a data account), but she is very disapointed with it.  Mainly MMS (she likes to send and recieve them), but no video recording, no voice recording, no voice control, no 900Mhz UTMS, no cut and paste, no front camera for video calls, no transcriber, can't use a stylus (more control).

There's a service where an email address is assigned to your mobile number as in 6421....@sms.vodafone.net.nz but you must subscribe to it (via a simple SMS signup) and you pay $0.20 per message received. It will also only forward the first 160 characters of the SMS (including the subject) - no images.

Hmm, anyone know what this "simple SMS signup" procedure is?

Old discussion on this topic with instructions are here.

SMS "R" (no quotes) to 901.

You will be charged $0.20 for each SMS received. If a spammer finds your email address (which is no different of any other email address) and sends out spam you will be charged for each message. Use with caution. It costs money. You have been warned. It does not come out of your SMS plans,
