    Most cellular providers "give" their users an email address that sends you their text content through SMS. If you are not actually using that address, that tip will surely come in handy.

    On Rogers in Canada (my provider), it's phonenumber@pcs.rogers.com. A search on google with your provider name followed by "email sms" should get you yours. Because Rogers are thieves, they don't actually send you the content but a message telling you you have received a mail and you have to reply (fee) to actually get the mail (and more replies if it's a long mail).

    If you put that address in the Push Email setting of Beejive, you will receive nearly instantly a SMS telling you got a message. In my case I don't get the content of the message, but I don't care as launching Beejive will get me my missed messages.

    I think it's a good solution until they get real push notification.


    Enjoy!
