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.

TeleFlip has been around for over a year now.

I have been referring people to that service for over a year.

You can use the individual carriers email to text option or teleflip. »
