With mail2mobile, you can now send and receive emails via a simple text / sms with just your basic celphone. You do not need internet connection, or a high-end smart phone just so you can send and receive email. It will cost you Php 2.50 per message sent for Globe and Smart users.
To get started emailing from your celphone even without internet, simply text:
m2m email address message
then send to 2948. No registration needed.
This is how mail2mobile email sent to my Gmail email account looks like.
Automatically, your firstname.lastname@example.org will become your email address. So your friends can simply email you via your m2m (mailtomobile) address, and you can receive it via text / sms. For example, my mail2mobile address is email@example.com since my mobile number is 0927-338-8689. So if you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I can receive your email from my phone via text / sms.
I could not find information as to how much you are charged for every email received from your phone. But based on my balance inquiry, it looks like I get charged Php 2.50 for ever email I received via text / sms via mail2mobile.
By the way, this is the instructions / information you will get when you text M2M HELP to 2948.
