sending emails using Rogers K790
I used to be able to send emails quite simply on my old phone using SMS.
My new K790 has an elaborate email sending interface under Messages->Write New->Email but unfortunately it appears to require a whole bunch of server settings that I don't know.
I spoke to Rogers and there is a quite simple way however to still send emails using SMS. Just enter the email address at the start of the message, followed by a space (I used the # key to generate a space - you can also make a space with the joystick, but that didn't seem to work). Then for the phone number to send to, enter 0000000000.
If you want to add a subject, put it in parentheses after the address, e.g.
email@example.com (my subject) Hi there.
Rogers will then gateway the email out from your phone email address (yourphonenumber)@pcs.rogers.com and will gateway any replies back to your phone via SMS.
