Sending Text Message From Your E-mail

Tri Nguyen | June 13, 2011 | ADD COMMENT

Generally, Text Messaging System is very much similar to any other E-mail Systems, in term structures and data processes. In fact, I think it's legitimate to consider it as a modified version of an E-mail system. Perhaps, that is the reason why our mobile number also comes in a form of E-mail, which not many people are aware about the fact that our mobile number is really a disguised version of an E-mail.

The following is a list of some of the major carriers in the United States and their mobile E-mail addresses. If your carrier is not listed, try to Google it. You'll be surprise to see more information than you've intended to find.

Carrier Email
T-Mobile [10-digit phone number]@tmomail.net
AT&T [10-digit phone number]@txt.att.net
Sprint [10-digit phone number]@messaging.sprintpcs.com
Verizon [10-digit phone number]@vtext.com

I also implemented a simple mail form to demonstrate this process. See Our Demo

Share on Facebook - Two Simple Methods

Method 1:
http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=http://www.tringuyen.info

In the example above, all we have to do is specifying the link that we want to share. Facebook API will pick up the default page title, description, and image automatically. If default image is not specified in the header, then first image will be used.

Method 2:

The second example allows us to fully customize all 4 properties: page title, share link, summary, image. This example is useful when adding share links to a list of entries such as blog entries or news items. If we use the first example above to share a list of items, then all share entries will look the same, which basically will make the shared content look boring and ineffective.

Free Phone Call To The United States and Canada Using Gmail Accounts

Tri Nguyen | June 05, 2011 | ADD COMMENT

If you don't see the "Call phone" option after logging into your Gmail account, that mean you have not signed up for Google Voice account. In such case, there is no need to worry, you can easily sign up at http://www.gmail.com/call/.

I have been using this feature for quite sometime now, and I really enjoy it. It's very convenience, especially when my cell phone had weak signal or when I forgot to bring my phone. More importantly, it allows love ones outside the United States to make unlimited phone call to United States and Canada for FREE!
