Free eMail to SMS service
TeleFlip makes sending e-mail to cellphones very easy. Most cellular services allow you to send e-mail to text-enabled cellphones by using its telephone number, but you need to know the domain name, which isn't always intuitive. For example, to email a Verizon user, you send to phonenumber @ vtext.com. Teleflip has now made it possible to send to most any text-enabled cell phone merely by using phonenumber @ teleflip.com.
There might be a useful library tool here. SMS notification of an ILL arrival, overdue book, reserved book availability, special events - maybe a lot of stuff!
Try it. It's free! (yourcellphonenumber)@teleflip.com.
