TeleFlip Launches Free Mobile Email Service
Today TeleFlip announced the availability of its free email-to-cell phone service called flipMail. Users must sign up at TeleFlip's web site, where they create a white list of people they'd like to receive email from. When those people send them an email, the email is converted into a text message and forwarded to the user's phone. Users can also send emails. The service is carrier, device, and email provider agnostic, and does not require any additional software nor a data plan. Users don't have to pay TeleFlip anything, but should expect to be billed for the text messages sent and received on their phones.
