Now operate your Hotmail account via SMS, GPRS not required!

10 Jun

Now you can get your emails from your hotmail account on your phone even without a GPRS connection. Yes, it’s true as Hotmail users can now send and receive emails via SMS without GPRS connectivity. You just have to visit www.mobile.live.com to fill-in your mobile number. Don’t worry, it’s totally safe and spam-proof (Hotmail won’t distribute your mobile numbers to unwanted agencies or so they claim). And after when you finish the necessary procedures, you can start sending and receiving mails. The mails will come in the form of a SMS in your phone’s message inbox.

To check your mails, you’ll be required to send a message ‘ia’ to a particular number which Hotmail shall provide you. Forwarding and replying to mails will cost you standard SMS tariffs.
