    My iphone 3gs is on the o2 network UK

    Since the arrival of 3.0 and then on the new 3gs as well when I receive an email I also get it as a text
    (sometimes text arrives first)

    Has anyone any ideas why this is happening and how to stop it
    Thanks !

    Hi, nice to see a fellow O2 user!

    Are you talking about O2 related emails, or all personal emails in general, as it surely must be impossible to receive a text which is a non O2 email. I'm just asking because I get SMS from O2 all the time and they email me sooner after or before too

    Perhaps there is software that allows you to SMS an email to someone, so as such it comes to you as both.

    So I guess two things to look for

    - Is it just O2 related emails (if at all)
    - Is it from the same person and/or company

    Hi thanks for the reply
    sadly it's all emails
    example eBay which as texts are huge
    I even tried test emails tomyself and it happens
    there has to be a simple reason ?

    ok what email account are we talking here? Hotmail, google?

    But you also get a SMS text message?
