Following are screenshots of the Email-to-Go texts I received from my mobile phone. Proof that it works!

I was also able to reply to an email via text / SMS.

The basic rates are P1.00 for the text alerts, and P2.50 for the rest. I feel the rate is a little bit high, especially if you’ll be receiving bulks of email It will be nice to have a one-time flat fee. But then if your email is very important like business deals — price is fair enough.
