There I was, in need of a portable email delivery service but not wanting to pay for it on a monthly basis. I was waiting for an important email and I already have a cellphone so all I needed was a text message to be sent to me whenever the email came.
I looked for all things "email2sms" and found this, which seemed like a good option until I realized that it would be 10 Pounds for the basic package! For that much, I started to think how I could code a quick solution myself (a "Hackberry" if you will...) but then I came across ipipi. Ah... I heart telecom.
