e-mailing mobiles

hi all, i know its a bit off the computers subject, but can anyone tell me how to e-mail a mobile phone, for starters, how do you find the address of your mobile to send the e-mails to.
doesn't explain to much in the phone manual.

as far as i know you can only do that if you have and the other person has the new 3G range of phones....

sorry didn't know how to get the c at the end of your name.
i have a 3510i and it says that i can send my messages as e-mails so i naturally presumed that i could receive e-mails

For future use to get the © hold down the "alt" key and on the right side of the keyboard the keys with the numbers press 0169 :-)

anyway back to the phone, i will have a study of the model and report back.......

i guess you can if yours and the other phone are compatible.... or so it says

in the information that you have found does it say that it would be possible to send e-mail messages from my desktop computer to the mobile.
If it IS possible, then there must be an e-mail address for my phone i.e. [email protected]. and not just my mobile number.
hope this makes sense.

no it does not, but what i do, and it is of course not the same, but i send all my text messages via O2 on the PC, they are free and you can send , i think it is about 50 a day.. meanwhile i will have another study....

A number of years ago, before I knew better, I was on AOL, if I remember correctly you could send emails via the internet to a mobile. When the email is received on the mobile phone the senders email address appears.
Of course it would not work in the reverse i.e. mobile to internet.

Forgot to say, just using the mobile's normal number.
