Direct Email to Text for Sprint

For work I currently use a {my sprint username}@sprintpcs.com email which forwards an alert to my phone in the form of a text message. It’s annoying, because it doesn’t tell me the content of the message, only that I’ve received one and who sent it. I found out awhile back that Sprint was discontinuing this service, which sucked (I thought).

Today I found a similar better service: {10 digit cell number}@messaging.sprintpcs.com, which will send a text to the phone with the first 160 characters of the email, because that’s the limitation of the text-messaging protocol. It’s not perfect, but it’s a great substitution for a service that is going away.
