can someone tell me if there is a way to send text messages to email addresses without using outlook email? do you have to be connected to the internet in order to use outlook email? i think that sucks because with other phones, you can send text to email addresses.
is there a free web based email that you can set up outlook through a pop3 account with your phone?
"Nobody ever got ahead by sitting on their behinds!"
gmail supports pop3, actually. Just go into your gmail settings and enable POP access then go to the help and it'll tell you how to set it up. As far as sending text msgs to an email address, I have a data plan so I have no real reason to have to do that. However, it's not possible to do it as the phone has some sort of built-in limitation.
What I found to do is send the message to "6425." In the body of the message in the text message account you have to type in the email address add a space and then type your message, i.e. email@example.com hey what's up. PITA because you have to either copy and paste the email addy or type it in. I had to call CS on this because it didn't work when I got my phone and I was stumped. It worked on my regular cell phone, don't know why it doesn't on the 6700. I know, it's still using outlook but that's the only way I've found. PS I don't have a data plan so that's all I can do.

Whoops, apologize for the dyslexic typo.

Thanks a ton! I've got it working nicely now. To "reply" you really need to fwd the original msg to 6245, which then gives you the replyto address in the right place. It's still not specified on VZW's web site anywhere that this is how you do it. oh well...
Either I'm not understanding this or my phone isn't working right. Any help would be greatly appreciated...
I have received a text message from a gmail account, sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. When I try to reply, it shows 6245 as the recipient. Sending that message results in an error that the message is undeliverable.
If I use Forward, the "To" field isn't filled in and I'd have to type in the gmail address for each time I wish to reply.
Is there any way to have it just work like a regular cell phone, reply to the email address that sent the message? It's certainly very inconvenient to have to always type in the recipient's address when "replying"...
OK, ignore my last message. Hubby just did the firmware update on the 6700 and it seems to now reply properly!
