One can now send an e-mail from one's mobile phone without enabling GPRS/Internet facility but through short message service (SMS).
This innovative service was 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 (Airtel Service) and then can send an e-mail, save and retrieve personal information, send a file to an e-mail address, share and access contact information. One can also participate in interactive group messaging.
MyDuniya Networks Founder and Chairman Jagadish Kini said at present these services are operational with Airtel in Karnataka and would be expanded with national coverage shortly.
The company is in dialogue with other operators for integration in near future.
Subscribers to operators other than Airtel need to send SMS to 99801-53695 to avail this service.
"MyDuniya platform brings processing power of the web and reach of the mobile to provide simple and useful applications", Kini said.
Company CEO Subramanian noted that SMS is the most widely used non-voice service. "Our services are designed with consumer choice, convenience and usability as focal points", he said.
