Sending email to an AT&T phone: Use the address format firstname.lastname@example.org. Example: email@example.com
Notes: The address for sending pictures -- assuming you have an MMS-compatible phone -- is firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can check with AT&T customer service (dial 611 on your mobile phone) if you have questions about rate plans or if you have problems with your SMS service (e.g. you're getting unwanted messages).

For whatever reason, @cingularme.com does not work on my phone. Another option is @mobile.mycingular.com. Also, there is a separate address to send pictures (as opposed to just text)... @mms.mycingular.com.
Don't forget about ##########@mmode.com for former at&t wireless phones.

After sending test messages and MMS messages from my phone, I was able to receive replies to the addresses ####@pics.cingularme.com and ####@mms.mycingular.com with useful Subject: and From: headers, but now those do not seem to work, and only mail filteres through the ####@cingularme.com filter with anonymized 'From:101001017' headers seem to arrive.
(I am using Cingular through Trakfone, so that may be an issue.)
who pays for the sending half of the cost when you send form e-mail? Does the receiver pay double?
If teleflip is free does that mean its free to receive too?
Can a phone setup to receive text msgs but not e-mail still do this receiving of e-mail as a text msg?

Anonymous: When you send an SMS message to someone via email, you're not charged. And the recepient is only charged their usual SMS message fee to receive the text message (they are not double-charged). The carriers only charge to *send* or *receive* text messages *on your phone*.
Teleflip is free to send but the recipient will still get charged for receiving the text message. (Unless they have an unlimited SMS account.)
And if you can receive SMS messages, you can use your phone's SMS address as a way of receiving ordinary Internet emails, yes. However, the messages you receive will be very short (depending on the carrier's limits for text messages) and you may not be able to reply.
"what is the way to "rject" a SMS that you do not wish to recieve...-:("
At least for me, just don't open it. If I don't actually open the SMS, I'm not charged for it. I even have a friend who has a phone that scrolls the contents of a message across the screen in the "inbox" view, but as long as she reads them that way rather than actually opening them, she's never charged for receiving them. So she never opens texts.

Just to let you know, any "former Cingular" customer is going to have the same e-mail as an at&t subscriber. To e-mail a text it's the phone number @txt.att.net and for mms it's the phone number @mms.att.net You can find this info on at&t's website. www.wireless.att.com I know this information is correct because I work as a customer care rep for the company.

u r amazing. these directions worked very well. thnx
does at&t keep and archive old text messages? if so, how long do they keep them? if someone wanted historic text message data, how far back can it be retrieved, and does it contain the actual text mesage or just the number?
