Bangalore: Even if your mobile phone does not have the GPRS/Internet facility, you can now use it to send e-mail. A new service just launched enables one to send email by using the short messaging service feature of one’s mobile phone.
This innovative service has been launched by Bangalore-based MyDuniya Networks Private Limited, a player in ‘beyond voice’ applications for mobile consumers.
With this service, all that a user has to do is send an SMS to 53695 (for Airtel subscribers) and then one can send e-mail, save and retrieve personal information, send a file to an e-mail address, and access contact information from one’s email account. One can also participate in interactive group messaging.
MyDuniya Networks founder and chairman Jagadish Kini said at present these services are being provided only through Airtel in Karnataka, but would be expanded to provide national coverage shortly.
The company is in dialogue with other operators for integration in the near future.
Subscribers to opertors other than Airtel need to send SMS to 9980153695 to avail of this service.
“MyDuniya platform brings processing power of the web and reach of the mobile to provide simple and useful applications”, Kini said.
