Yep - asked theory to resend. I added a fix to suppress the junk. Thanks for the update.

Ok got another one. I am on verizon an the text showed up as:

(Report) (206) 579-1XXX says: Testing to see if this works.-Daniel--Sent using SMS-to-email. Reply to this email to text the sender back and save on SM

My email was complete as such:

(206) 579-1XXX says: Testing to see if this works.-Daniel--Sent using SMS-to-email. Reply to this email to text the sender back and save on SMS fees.https://www.google.com/voice


It is weird that it doesn't sent me two SMS messages since it appended the text.

All these email-to-text vary from carrier to carrier. What a pain.

That "Sent using" message seems to sometimes show up, sometimes not. I guess I didn't fix it. =/ Put in another attempt to suppress it.

Daniel, can you try again? Thanks.

So Verizon has a separate MMS email address. If I send it to the SMS address, it gets chopped. If I send it to the MMS address, you'll only receive it if you have picture messaging (MMS) enabled.

I think I'll probably just send MMS only. Long messages for Verizon users should now be over MMS instead of SMS.

Same thing for AT&T guys. You were getting truncated SMS messages. I'm sending them as MMS messages now.

Tmobile and Sprint auto-detect.

Ok, figured out why that "Sent from" message shows up sometimes, but not other times. It sends it the first time a new number texts 206-EZKITER. The 2nd, 3rd, etc time the message doesn't show up. We need someone other than Daniel, Theory, eric or myself to text the number.

I can verify that the "Another test from daniel" sent at 12:14 had the "Sent using" junk appended to it. Looks like I got it right this time. The text was stripped out of the message correctly.

I got one e-mail from someone with t-mobile, it had 5 attachments to it (tmobile graphics). Are those gone now?

What time did you receive it? What phone number did it come from?
