    i remember i used to be able to send email via the SMS service on mobile
    phones, i did a couple of times via Vodafone on a Alcatel phone about 3
    years ago, cost the same as a normal TXT.

    is this service still available? or has it been replaced by GPRS & friends?

    my current phone, a Seimens, only takes numbers so i can't even try
    entering an email address.

    Ditto. Works for me too.

    A couple of questions/points:

    1. Is there a difference between the + sign and the + sign used for
    international numbers?

    2. Do you have to use the +64 or can you use 0211010099?

    As long as a + sign before the number, this will classify as an
    international Country code number as far as I'm aware.
    Yes, has to be the the number +6421010099 to work.
