As of today (at least), "a-la-carte" messages cost 20¢ to send or receive. There is a 300 message plan for $5.00/month, 1000 message plan for $10.00/month, and an unlimited plan for $15.00/month.
Looks like prices are going up!

What shows up on the bill of the Sprint PCS customer? Does anyone know? I want to send a text to an individual from my e-mail to them, but I don't want my e-mail address to show up on the bill, is that possible? Or what shows up on the bill on their end.

Typically what shows up is just a number count of how many messages were sent or received. Mine doesn't ever show any identifying information like it does for phone calls.

so it costs the individual receiving the email as a text msg money??
say you have unlimited text msging as part of your plan
if someone send them an email in the form of a text msg (i.e. sends an email to firstname.lastname@example.org) is that going to cost them per message?
in other words, does "unlimited text messaging" apply to emails converted into text messages as well??
so i'm confused. if someone sends you a text message and you don't have a plan does that cost anything? and if you get one of the $5 for 300 plans if someone sends you a message, does that count as one of the 300 texts?
So if I want to send an SMS to someone in Mexico using the cellular providers email...will i get charge only for DOMESTIC TXT? I have unlimited txting with Sprint. So does that mean i won't get charged the .20 cent fee per message?
There seems to be a problem with the Sprint email to SMS gateway. I can send/receive SMS messages to/from phones, but all email messages sent from my organization to ##########@messsaging.sprintpcs.com are stuck in my email server's outbound queue. Messages to T-mobile phones and Verizon phones is working normally.
I called Sprint's "technical" support, but the wrecknicians are only barely familiar with the phones, and not how the underlying technology actually works. After trying (as usual) to point the finger of blame towards my Microsoft Exchange server, the Sprint representative let me know that Sprint is apparently retireing their email servers. It looks like messaging.sprintpcs.com is down, and according to Sprint, for good. I have not heard of this until now; I am awaiting a call back to find out what Sprint intends to provide in lieu of that server. In the mean time - I am sending all my email messages to PM.SPRINT.COM and they get through to my phone, although I have to download the messages once I am alerted.
