I recently switched from a CDMA to HSPA phone and discovered that sending text to an email address has changed, as outlined by this post.
It's now required to text to 6245 and put the email address at the beginning of the message.
That makes contact management more difficult.
It then requires typing in the email address, which is both inconvenient and prone to error.
It would be great if I could discover some method of streamlining that such as:
-some method which would save contacts with some of a message already included.
(i.e. a contact for Bob which is stored as send to 6245 with firstname.lastname@example.org already pre-filled in)
- a convenient copy and paste method so I can ensure "Bobs" email address is entered quickly and accurately.
As referred to in that other thread, texts to email addresses are automatically converted to mms by the messaging app.
Based on that thread, it appears that if they could be forced to be sent sms rather than mms, the 6245 method would still be required anyways (due to HSPA).
I have no method to confirm that though, as I have been unable to find (if it even exists) a method to "force" a text to email to use sms.
If someone knows a way, that would also be helpful.
Using Android gingerbread 2.3.5
Phone plan has no data enabled, therefore no mms can even be sent, even if I wanted to.
