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:
- Whenever anyone sends an E-mail to my main E-mail address, a copy is sent to my text script.
- The text script checks to see if it matches certain criteria (like being about craigslist or ebay)
- If it gets past the filters, the E-mail is subjected to some more formatting/filtering
- 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!
