- First enable the service ( supported by KPN, Libertel/Vodafone, BEN, Telfort, Dutchtone. These are the five operators in the Netherlands ) by sending a text message containing EMAIL ON.

KPN: text EMAIL ON to number 969
Libertel / Vodafone: text EMAIL ON to number 125
BEN: text EMAIL ON to number 555
Telfort: text EMAIL ON to number 221
Dutchtone: text EMAIL ON to number 126

- the email is your_telephone_number@gin.nl ( a confirmation text message will be sent to you after activating the service containing your emailadres

- there is no limit on the number of messages you can receive, costs differ from Operator to Operator. Only the subject will be sent and maximum length is 160 characters. It is possible to receive the body of the email. Check website for more information
