blood!

Erm, Australian carriers?

I was wondering if someone could look into connecting Australian mobile carriers to the text messaging thing. I use the Telstra network... the website is at www.telstra.com.au , but I can't seem to find anything to do with web to phone messaging apart from business plans.

However, there's another website, smspup.com , which sends text messages to all Australian carriers. It has an email to SMS gateway, such that emails directed a *mobile number*@smspup.com will be forwarded as an SMS to a mobile phone.

If we sign up for that, would it be possible for text messaging from here to go through there to reach us? (that is, if Telstra doesn't support web to phone SMSing...)

Thanks
