Email-to-sms does not work for me even though that option is activated in my phone as evidenced by a check in the box associated with “Advanced settings” option “Allow SMS messages from email”. Note that I have been unable to fully upgrade, having tried many months ago, due to failures of the upgrade process. I just assumed (or maybe read from upgrade process error messages) that this phone does not have enough memory to upgrade to a current version of Republic App/Google/Motorola.
Note also that I am unable to upgrade my phone nor service due to a total lack of any income, even unemployment income.
Thank you for any help you can give me to get the email-to-SMS feature working without charges or increasing my monthly service costs!!!
