You might be waiting for someone’s mail which is really important to you and unfortunately you are not able to access the Internet. I do agree that GPRS has become very common to everyone and even phones supporting 3G network have come up which let you access the Internet whenever you want to. But checking your mails again and again would be inconvenient for some of us. How about getting an SMS alert for all of your mails instantaneously? Sounds good I guess. Here goes the solution
Way2SMS provides you with a facility to send free SMS all over India and it also provides you with an email id once you sign up for it. You can forward all your emails to the email id provided to you by them and get SMS alerts instantly. Follow these steps:
Activating Mail Alerts
After you login, click on “Mail Alerts” at the top right corner.
Next, click on “Click Here to Activate” and select your mail service. Way2SMS also explains how to forward your mails from Gmail or Yahoo Mail.
After selecting your mail service, forward your mail to the email id provided by Way2SMS. The id provided by Way2SMS would be XXXXXXXX@way2sms.com
Click on “Continue” and choose your preferred Time Settings for receiving Mail Alerts.
Finally, Click on “Activate”. Now your Mail Alerts are activated and you would get SMS alerts for all the mails you receive.
You can forward any number of mails for which you wish to receive SMS alerts to your Way2SMS email id. All this is absolutely FREE of cost and trust me, the Alerts are sent to your mobile instantly (personally experienced). So you don’t need to worry about time delays.
This proves really helpful if you want to be kept updated with your Facebook Notifications. I do agree that Facebook provides SMS Notifications but according to my experience, the notifications are delivered late to your Mobile and sometimes, they are delivered only when I am fast asleep late at night. This is just a Facebook issue.
