SMS, MMS, and Me

Woohoo! I just finished getting MMS (pix messages) working on my phone, and since I now have an unlimited texting plan, I have finally put my sweet sweet script into action! Here’s what happens:

  1. Whenever anyone sends an E-mail to my main E-mail address, a copy is sent to my text script.
  2. The text script checks to see if it matches certain criteria (like being about craigslist or ebay)
  3. If it gets past the filters, the E-mail is subjected to some more formatting/filtering
  4. The freshly formatted E-mail is sent to my phone as a text (or pix message if it’s too long for a text)

This thing was crazy fun and exciting to get set up and I’m stoked about being able to get select E-mails on my phone without paying for any kind of data plan. So if you’re a friend of mine and want in on this, my script is set up to handle a bunch of different E-mail addresses/phone numbers, so if you ask nicely and I have time, I can totally set it up for you!
