    I need help, I am yet to find any web service that sends free SMS to my Orange UK mobile.

    I tried the web2mail thing as well and that didn't work!? Anyone help?

    I tried that, I typed +44 (UK area code) then the 11 digit UK orange number like:

    +4412345678912

    but it says the number is offline or something and is not accepting it or something :S

    EDIT it says:

    *my number* is unable to receive offline messages.

    ok lets put my number as 11111111111. My area code for UK is +44 and my phone number is 11 digit. Orange is on @orange.net so I go to my mail app and send a message to

    11111111111@orange.net

    that didnt work so I tried:

    +4411111111111@orange.net

    neither did that work. Help?

    EDIT: Ok I set up an orange.net email account and I can now send to 11111111111@orange.net however on my phone it comes up saying, "you have an email" and so I have to call a number to listen to it but when I call the number it dont work. Is there a way to let my phone read the email as a text?
