Hi friends..last time I wrote about email alerts,it was only for Gmail users,but recently I stumbled across the wild wild web to find how to get my email alerts on my mobile (an old highly modded LG KG195), and the search was worth my time. I finally landed to WAY2SMS.COM which allowed me to send free sms all over India and even get email alerts on my mobile for free !!
Way2sms is a sms gateway provider which allows to send free sms across India,the sms are of 140 characters and consists of a 20 character advertisement through which the website covers its costs. Way2sms allows for seamless integration of Gmail, Yahoo accounts and you can chat from right at that site with your friends.
Well,that was a lot about way2sms,now lets learn how we can use to to get free email alerts on mobile -
First register at www.way2sms.com and login into the site.
Now click on Mail tab and create a new way2sms email ID.
After you have created it,login into your Gmail account/Yahoo account or in short Email account :P
All you have to do is Just link your Gmail account with your Way2SMS account. Here is the way -
- Logon to your Gmail account

Any Other Email Users

The only downside of using this service is that you have to reactivate it every 7 days but that's okay as it only takes the click of a button :P
I have been enjoying this service and just want to say that its awesome. You can send sms,create groups,send group sms,get email alerts on your mobile on the go..what else do you want? Why wait,just go ahead and get going ..
