Teleflip connects email to SMS

Teleflip connects email to SMS

I covered Joopz from DemoFall yesterday [see the Demo blog]. It's a nice Web site that lets you send and receive SMS messages. But a reader just wrote to tell me about an even easier PC-to-cell phone texting service, Teleflip. Just send an email to a cell phone number @teleflip.com, and the receiver will get it as an SMS. If they reply, you'll see it in your email. Joopz has many more bells and whistles (like the capability to transfer an ongoing text conversation from the Joopz Web site to your cell phone), but if you live in email, Teleflip is a really easy way to get quick messages to co-workers and friends who may not. It's free for up to 100 messages a month.
