How can I send an alert to my cell phone?
Standard LaundryView alerts are generated as e-mails but can be easily sent to your cell phone as a text message. See below for an explanation of how to send e-mail messages to your phone. Once you know how to create an e-mail address that will be pointed to your phone, use it to create your profile with LaundryView. Alerts for that profile will then be sent to your phone.
SMS isn’t just for sending text messages from one phone to another — it’s also a great way to get email messages on your phone.
Yes, you can get email on your phone! All you need to know is your cell phone’s email address.
Most carriers have “SMS gateways” which take email messages from the Internet and deliver them to their customers’ cell phones as SMS text messages. The trick is that you need to know what carrier the recipient’s phone is on — it’s not enough to know their phone number. That’s because the carrier determines what the email address of the receiving phone is going to be. For example, Telus phones’ addresses are all “email@example.com” while Bell phones are “firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Sound complicated? It’s not. All you really need to do is find your carrier in the list below, and then use the pattern shown there to figure out your email address. If you want to send email to a friend’s phone, just ask them which carrier they use, and off you go!
