Email to AT&T Mobile Devices

Last week, some of my users stopped receiving e-mail on their cell phones.

We had the aliases set up for:
<ten digits>@mobile.att.net

mobile.att.net no longer exists.

So, after some research, I got an answer from USENET:
<ten digits>@mmode.com

This is also accepting messages:
<ten digits>@mobile.mycingular.com
(But they do not seem to be delivered. Except to one user who recently switched phones.)

A very smart person reports that if your mobile is GSM you might want:
<ten digits>@cingularme.com

Update–July, 2007: For John and Bertrand, who is on Cingular’s “Pay as You Go” plan:
<ten digits>@txt.att.net

I did this to my aliases file:
:%s/mobile.att.net/mmode.com/

(I only bother to blog about this because simply typing my problem in to Google got me nada.)

  • Thanks for blogging about this; now Google hits you, and you’ve solved my problem. ;)

    The @mmode worked for my friend who is an ATT customer who hasn’t upgraded to Cingular as of 11/07/2005.

    Another vote of thanks from San Antonio, Texas. The mmode option works for my old TDMA phone after all other cingular and att options failed. Have not yet tried the new GSM units, as am still in process of putting them into service. Now, if there were a way to download directories from the Nokia TDMA phone to the Nokia 6010 GSM unit, that would be a huge bonus. Any ideas?

    it works! thanks!

  • John

    txt.att.net is the only one that works for me.

  • Bertrand Janin

    txt.att.net is also the only one that works for me. I was using Pay as you go from Cingular.

  • Thanks for the notes, guys. I’ll try to keep this post updated.

    Hi there, I have an onlocked Nokia N73, using Cingular Pay as You Go (Now AT&T)The settings I received from Nokia and Cingular via sms, does not work for mms, email, etc. No help from Network – not their phone! Think if I can find complete settings step by step to do manually, it might work? I need a lot of help here, PLEASE?

    Thank you, Rita.

  • If anyone can give Rita a hand, send me an e-mail and I’ll put you in touch. -d
