    I have the 700W but have disabled data since I can't justify the monthly expense. On my old cell phone I used to be able to send a text message to an email address, but now when I try, I get an error message. I read in another forum that the only way I can do this on a Treo is to enable data (and therefore add $40 to my monthly plan) and send the message from my personal email account. Is this true and if so, what are my alternatives?

    ETA: Nevermind, I figured it out. TO address is 6245 (spells MAIL on a regular phone). In the body of your message enter the email address you want to send a text to, followed by a space, and then your actual message. I sent two texts to my hotmail and gmail account and they both arrived from username@vtext.com.

    Your trick works great - if you try to use an email address in the address field of an SMS, the Connections rules kick in on the OS and it tries to use the data connection and fails.
