    Does Sprint do Short Mail or has it been completely replaced by SMS. I am just trying to figure out a way to send some kind of txt message with out paying the 10c or using IM. Any ideas anyone?

    Short mail is still functional as many older model phones only have that capability. Shortmail is handled via a web interface, so you will be charged per KB unless you have a data plan. Also, if I recall correctly, not long afer Sprint introduced SMS on the newer phones, they changed their policy and began charging 10 cents per message for the notification you recieve when you get a shortmail message. So, you get pinged for both the notification (as you would for a SMS) and the data session required to see the shortmail message. I do not know if that has changed.

    Short mail sucked. Glad they did away with that crap.
