We have used SMTP to send text to mobile phones in the US (sprint, cingular and Verizon) but we have tried this to 2 UK carriers (Virgin and Vodafone) and in both instances no message was ever received.

We used the following formats

Virgin Mobile phonenumber@vmobl.com
Virgin Mobile phonenumber@vxtras.com
Vodafone UK phonenumber@vodafone.net

We followed up with the carriers directly to see if we had the incorrect format/email string. Not only were they no help but they both said that they had never heard of such a thing a SMTP to text and their records do not indicate support for any such service.

Does anyone know if these 2 carriers support smtp and if so is there something unique that we need to do in the notepager program to get this to work. We will also need to send smtp messages to Orange and want to know if the same problems can be expected.

Any help/feedback/assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Charlie

From the searching I've done, Vodafone no longer supports direct SMTP messaging to their devices. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what protocols Vodafone may support because, as you mentioned, they don't really advertise what they support for third party messaging solutions.
