Sending Text Message to Cellphone Regardless of Service Provider

From: LawTech Guru Blog by Jeff Beard:

Teleflip solves the problem of having to know all the different domain names for each wireless carrier's service. Regardless of which carrier your intended recipient is using, just send a text message or e-mail to the person's 10-digit phone number at, like this: Teleflip figures out who's on which service, and it gets there in a few seconds like magic. No registration required -- just send the message per above.
Per the site: "TeleflipTM started when the founder became increasingly frustrated at his inability to send text messages to friends' cell phones from his PC. It was of course possible, but you had to know the cell phone provider, the correct domain name and the correct syntax for the email address. There had to be an easier way....TeleflipTM was born."


When sending a text message -- called SMS (for short message system) -- keep the following limitations in mind:

  • SMS messages are limited to 160 characters, including the To: and Subject: fields.  All characters after 160 are simply lost in transmission and join your lost socks in a parallel universe.
  • No attachments will come through.
