I have received an emailed press release today regarding yet another FREE SMS service offering from MegaMobile Inc. The letter reads:
Dear Family and Friends,
We've just come out with a simple and easy to use messaging service that allows anyone with an email to send FREE SMS text messages to any Globe, Smart and Sun* mobile subscriber. This is especially useful and, more importantly, cost-saving for our Kababayans abroad who need to get in touch with friends and family this Holiday Season. So, forward this email to your egroups and mailing lists.
*in the works, service on Sun coming soon!
How to send SMS from your email:
1) Type in the recipients' (To:, cc:, bcc:) mobile in this format <cellphone number>@m2m.ph (example: email@example.com)
2) Write your SMS message as you would an email.
Note: Don't forget to save your recipients' mobile "email" address in your contacts list so it will be easier for you to send and compose future sms emails. I've attached a screenshot of how this might look like.
Conversely, you may also send SMS from your mobile phones to any email address. How to do it:
1) Compose an SMS message in this format: M2M <recipient email address> <Your Message>
Example: M2M firstname.lastname@example.org When are you coming up with a better Iphone?!
2) Send to 2948
Try it out yourselves and tell your friends about it.
Enjoy the holidays!
We'll there is no more excuse not being able to greet everyone a Merry Christmas this year!
