I'd like to receive SMS reminders from ToodleDo but my carrier doesn't understand "Email to SMS gateway address". I've tested the format by sending myself an email but that doesn't work.

Anyone here on the O2 UK network who's successfully set this up and can advise on syntax? Thanks

I've finally found the answer to my own question.

O2 don't actually know about it because it's legacy stuff from when they were BT Cellnet - I found it on a forum discussion dated 2002.

For anyone else on the O2 UK network who's interested in receiving text message reminders from ToodleDo here's how to set it up - but caution - I haven't yet checked how much I'm being charged.

1. Send an SMS to phone number 212 with message saying "ON"
2. Your email to SMS address is now activated: (n= your mobile number omitting preceding zero)
3. Send a test email to yourself to make sure it's working.
