    I recently picked up a used Treo 600 and have been trying to figure out how to combine my Verizon cell phone service and Skytel 2-way pager. The phone is obviously a no brainer, but the pager has become a challenge. I am admitedly too cheap to pay $50 for data services through Verizon as I can't justify the cost.

    The workaround:

    Lower the number of characters I receive on my 2-way to 160 chars.
    Forward the pages to an email alias that in turn forwards to the pager
    This worked great if pages were sent via the Skytel TAP gateway
    Pages were received as multiple messages via SMS!

    The down side is that pager to pager and email to pager messages were truncated at 160 chars and not chunked.

    Skytel confirmed that only messages sent via the TAP server or created on their site will be sent in multiple parts.

    I was hoping someone found a site (or a way, or a service) that would allow for the set-up of an alias that had hooks into the Skytel TAP server so that when pages are sent via the Skytel TAP server, I get them in chunks on the Treo.

    Sorry this has been discussed before. Doesn't look like what I want to do is feasible.
