I am considering having Cricket as a cell carrier, but I noticed that they're listed as unsupported with LiveJournal. That post, however, is about 5 years old, and I was just wondering if there had been any change with regards to their technology that would allow us to count them as supported now.

Cingular Blue doesn't exist any more, it can be removed.

Cingular is now AT&T. It's correctly configured with a max of 160 characters but entering the max allowed is resulting in text messages being broken up.

For example, if I send myself a text message using the link on my User Info page, entering more than 128 characters results in the message being broken up into two messages - a 20 character overrun.

On the plus side, since the messages are being broken up, you could - in theory - raise the limit.

I just recently got a Helio phone and I'm hoping to get this phone on the list of supported carriers. You can send email SMS to number@myhelio.com

What other information is needed?

I've got Verizon Wireless here in the States, but have recently been flooded with spam messages. I'd like to set my filters to block all web and email based messages, but this will block LJ out. What email address should I put on my white-out list to keep my LJ texts coming through?

My cellphone is through Three in Australia, but it's not listed in the supported services. I know that they *borrow* Telstra's services when I go out of range, but is it still possible for me to receive texts from LJ? If it's any help, my friends can send me SMS's from free websites, and they are delivered to me as normal messages (I don't have to log in anywhere)

Hello everyone. I want to notice, that ukrainian operator URS (trademark WellCom) was rebrandered to Beeline, so correct mail2sms gateway is:
38<7-digit_phone_number>@sms.beeline.ua
Old gateway dosn't work anymore.

Hello. I'm writing about Beeline GSM provider. It seems like sending SMSes in Russian to that carrier causes some encoding problems: LJ sends e-mails in UTF-8, and Beeline seems not to handle such e-mails correctly. Though, I managed to send Russian SMSes by sending e-mails in KOI8-R (and, maybe, it's possible to send them via e-mails in Windows-1251). Could this be fixed?
Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Hello,

I'd like you to know that "Vodafone Japan" (Previously J-Phone) was acquired by SOFTBANK MOBILE Corp. a while back, and changed its name on October 1st, 2006.
So, would you please change the Service Provider List?

New name;
Softbank Mobile
(account)@softbank.ne.jp

Note that they don't accept "number@softbank.ne.jp" address (to prevent receiving spams).

Hello,
I have found that Sasktel is not shown as a supported carrier for the lj-textmessege feature.
I have found it goes your full sasktel number xxxxxxxxxxx@sms.sasktel.com
If you could add sasktel to your supported list that would be great.
Thanks,
Nathan

Hi,

First and foremost, I should probably tell you that I am with Tesco Mobile,
which is not on the drop down menu.

However, I have an account at o2.co.uk and have sent messages from there to my
mobile phone, and all works fine. So I should be able to use that, right? Only
when I try it from Livejournal I don't receive anything I send. I've set it as
O2 (formerly BTCellnet) and put down my username (bofbanoff). Is there anything
I have to tick at the O2 website, because I have looked but can't see anything,
or do I actually have to have an O2 phone (Tesco Mobile is 50:50 Tesco plc and
O2 - they share the same signal).

Any help would be much appreciated, as I am very close to tearing my hair out in
frustration!

Many thanks,

bofbanoff

P.S. sorry about the header, IE crashed on me the first time around and I must have forgotten to re-enter it. Hopefully this works this time around.

Hi,

I have a 'plus' account, I chose Vodafone Italia as my provider, but I cannot receive text messages. I tried, and so did my friends.

I tried putting my number only, then number@sms.vodafone.it, then I even tried choosing 'other' as my provider + number@sms.vodafone.it.

I can receive text messages via e-mail.

Any suggestion?

Thank you!

Hi, 

I recently tried the text messaging function and selected Verizon as my provider as well as listed my number where required. However, when I tried it to see if it worked correctly, I didn't receive any messages. I found this community and checked in other Verizon posts and realized that the messages are delivered to number@vtext. Then I figured that since I'm from Puerto Rico, I must have a different address or something, so I checked www.verizonwirelesspr.com and indeed it delivers messages to number@vtexto.com. Not that much of a difference, but enough to impede message delivery. Is there any chance that you could add this to the supported providers?

Thanks in advance.

Could you please add this provider to your list?

INFO
- Text messages via email
- URL for the provider: www.comcel.com
- Recipient addressed by email in the form of: 12345@comcel.com (12345 being the phone number of the person receiving the message)
- No idea if there's a character limit. Don't think so (as far as I know if you write too much they split the message)

I think that's all.

Thanks in advance for your help :D

Correction to my previous entry - Cingular will not be renamed to AT&T. Cingular's parent company, AT&T (formally SBC), will offer their own branded wireless services that compete with Cingular - and they'll also use Cingular's network.

Cingular will remain the same, Cingular Blue (formally AT&T Wireless) will remain the same, AT&T Wireless will return but will be a different company.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
11/22/05 ATLANTA, GA (Circulation: 381,730)
"New AT&T Could Complicate Cingular's Plans"
AT&T,formerly SBC Communications,is now expected to offer some wireless services under its own name, probably starting with plans for business customers. Though this development won't affect the tens of millions of customers who use phones sold under the Cingular brand, it could be the opening volley in a battle over the future of the venture. The key is whether AT&T decides to sell consumer-oriented services, too, thus targeting the core market for the Cingular brand.

Associated Press
11/22/2005 Internet
"AT&T plans to resurrect wireless brand"
AT&TInc., the company created by SBC Communications Inc.'s just-completed purchase of its former corporate parent, plans to resurrect the AT&T Wireless brand for cell phone service provided by its Cingular Wireless partnership with BellSouth Corp. “This does not change in any way how we'll market Cingular. This is still a national brand, and they support our marketing Cingular as a national brand," Cingular spokesman Mark Siegel said. "Cingular is a well-recognized brand with a huge base of customers, and I'm sure this will be taken into account with these decisons."

Wireless Week
11/22/2005 Internet
"AT&T To Sell Branded Wireless"
SBCCommunications officially closed its deal to merge with AT&T Corporation. The combined entity, known henceforth as AT&T, rolled out its new image, complete with a new logo and a reported plan to offer a wireless service under the AT&T brand.In a Nov. 20 interview with USA Today, AT&T company chief executive Edward Whitacre said the company plans to sell wireless service mainly under the AT&T brand. "This is not a surprise, because when the Cingular joint venture was created, we anticipated (our parents) might want to offer wireless services under their own brands," says Cingular Wireless spokesman Mark Siegel."Mr. Whitacre's comments changes in no way how we will market Cingular. Our size and national presence is an advantage for our parents," Siegel says.

RCR Wireless News
11/22/2005 Internet
"New AT&T planning wireless service using Cingular network"
SBCCommunications Inc. is reportedly planning to launch an AT&T branded wireless service that will use the network of SBC's current wireless joint venture, Cingular Wireless L.L.C. SBC's plans follow the closing last weekend of its $16 billion acquisition of AT&T Corp. Contrary to published reports, Cingular said it is not changing its name to AT&T."We are continuing with the strong Cingular brand that we have spent the past five years building and promoting," said Cingular spokesman Clay Owen.

Just as a heads up, things are coming full circle. SBC buys AT&T, assumes AT&T name, will ditch Cingular name in favor of AT&T.

I'm having problems with my text-messaging feature. It seems that one particular person can't text me through my user info page; she gets an error message stating that I don't have a valid email address. No one else seems to have this problem. I have my settings so that anyone can text me, but she's on my flist, anyway. Andy ideas how this problem can be fixed?

Thanks!

After trying to get my text message function to work, I finally called comviq up to ask what was wrong.

This is how it works:

You have to call comviq up and have them install an e-mail-address for you, where the address would be "yournumber@sms.comviq.se" This service cost 25 SEK a month (this is for Comviq Kontantkort only) so, if you think it is worth the money, go ahead, otherwise don't. :)

Anyone else? Any answers? Am I missing some important chunk of info?

I apologize if this has been asked before, but I didn't see anything about it on the info page or in the memories section. Nor on the main LJ faq page.

Can we reply to all text messages sent to us via LJ? Or does the other person also have to have a paid account with text messaging set up?

I just set up the text messaging feature and so far I've received 4 messages (all from free accounts). When I reply, though, I get a delivery error. I sent one to myself to test it out, and I was able to reply to MYSELF just fine - the reply showed up in my email as my number@vtext.com.

I'm on Verizon Wireless.

Am I doing something wrong? Or... do they just have to have paid accounts... or?

Thanks!

I believe a change has been made to their service. I remember being able to get messages sent to number@timnet.com, like Livejournal is sending (according to this), but it's been quite a while that that has not been working for me anymore.

Now, each TIM user has a full email address (something like username@tim.com.br). Any email sent to this address, as long as you are registered to this service, is redirected to your SMS inbox.

Just thought I should point it out.

I skimmed back through some of the entries and the support site, but I couldn't find anything in regards to this question. Basically, I'm getting odd text messages from random names@livejournal.com. I have text messaging turned on for my info page. That's where it's coming from. My question though is this : Is there any way to track who sent it? Like... for example on my lj comments, I can see the ip address of anyone commenting. Is there any way to see a list of ip addresses of people who sent text messages from my info page? The messages aren't coming from the people that it says they're from. I'd like some clue as to who it really is.

Thanks for any help/advice.

I am trying to set up my t-mobile sidekick to receive text messages and I have been unsucessful so far. In the information it says that the messages go to the tmail.com address. Does this mean I should be putting my tmail username in the phone number box? Or my phone number? I have tried both and have not gotten my test text messages.

I am not sure if I am doing something wrong here or if it is working?

I am with Optus, At first I thought the number may be incorrectly typed in (with or without country code, etc). Either way, I've tried both in the past and neither have worked.. If someone could please tell me reasons as to why it has never worked for me and how it can be fixed I would really appreciate it.

I posted this in the support area and was directed here. This is my problem:

I set up my LJ so I could receive text messages to my phone. I use this set up, as stated in the service provider details:

O2 (formerly BTCellnet) (from: 20, msg: 120, total: 120)
Enter O2 username - must be enabled first at http://www.o2.co.uk. Goes to username@o2.co.uk.


Now, it WAS working, because I tested it and got a few messages through from other people. Now though, I tried to test it again and I get this response:

Error
One or more errors occurred processing your request. Please go back, correct the necessary information, and submit your data again.

* No number specified in object constructor.


Obviously my 02 username is in place of my phone number in the appropriate box.

Any idea why this is happening? What am I missing?

Thanks for any help you can give. ^_^

I'm unable to send text messages through LJ to my Qwest mobile phone. I've tried it a few times and, what ends up being a day or two later, I receive an email stating my message was unable to be sent. I didn't find any known issues with Qwest, so I'm wondering if my phone format is incorrect. This is how I've entered it in my info:

555 555-5555
5555555555

Sorry, I should have clarified that I've tried both the above formats and neither one work. Is there something else I should be aware of?
