A certain friend of mine reached my e-mail from her cell phone with a text message. I was bewildered and fascinated, and didn't know such a thing was possible. I tried to see if this was reversable and wrote a reply, which apparently she recieved. I asked another friend to try this but she didn't think it would work because her phone is "not connected to the internet". The first friend has not answered any of my querries about how this works, how she got the message to my e-mail from her phone (busy or something). I'm wondering if anyone knows what needs to be in place to be able to do this. Do you need a special internet connection with your cell phone service to send a text to someone's computer by e-mail or is this some sort of standard capability all cell phones have? I have never had a cell phone and have no idea how they work.
