Sending Email via SMS in Nepal (SMS-to-Email)


Yes there is an option for Sending Email via SMS with NCell. NCell provides SMS
to Email service with monthly activation charge and Re 1 per sms for sending SMS.
Moreover, it also supports the other way to deliver SMS via Email.

More details on this service from NCell is available here -

However, there is no such service being provided by Nepal Telecom.

Next is the service provided by Sparrow SMS (http://sparrowsms.com)

Sparrow SMS provides SMS to Email service through its shortcode 4001. The message
syntax for sending Email through SMS is as follows:
TO<space>Email-Address<space>Email Text

Cost per SMS is Re 1 and has no activation charges. It works for both Nepal Telecom and NCell GSM users. A nice HTML email will be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox.

I was always looking for a service like this.

Well, its a one way service, but its quite logical for it to be to one way too. Email texts are quite longer and I can understand the cost overhead in sending it as an email.

Hoping for more to come from Sparrow.
