The Unofficial Apple Weblog has posted 6 Things You Need to Know about iPhone SMS. Handy info to know in general but the tip that jumped out as a good workaround for getting information onto the phone instantly is that you can email a text message directly to the phone. You're limited to 160 characters (Twitter users should feel right at home) but for a quick phone number, address, or directions it might come in handy.

Send your text message to phonenumber@cingularme.com (e.g. 7035551212@cingularme.com, just use the numbers, no hyphens, etc). Keep your message brief. Both the subject line and the message arrive on the iPhone.

I know I've been a tad iPhone obsessed. Regular non-iPhone blogging will resume shortly. Thanks for your indulgence.

    Hey Marc,

    Have you heard of/used Teleflip?

    Just like what you are talking about but doesn't require you to know what carrier your friend is on:
    https://www.teleflip.com/blog/services/flipout/

    Just email phonenumber@teleflip.com and it figures out the rest.

      I have a Yahoo account gathering cobwebs (too many freakin' e-mail accounts!) that I'll give that a try with. Thanks.
