Tele-Communication (Telecom) Terms Glossary and Dictionary
Teleflip is a service that makes it possible for a customer to send short email messages to anyone's phone using only their phone number. The way it works is like this: Open any email program or webmail site, then in the To: field, put your friend's phone number (don't use any parentheses around the area code), followed by @teleflip.com. For instance, if your friend's number was 415-555-1212, you'd just enter: email@example.com. In the body of the message, type a short message, up to 160 characters. You can put something in the subject line too, but it will count towards that 160-character limit, finally,hit Send. Your message will go to TeleFlip, and TeleFlip will convert it into a text message and deliver it to your friend's phone via SMS (Short Message Service).
