Blog #51: Contacting Me Via SMS, or
Hello, everyone. I have been having problems with Yahoo Messenger, and I gather that a lot of the people I keep in touch with with via YM are having the same problems as well.
So, to supplement YM, and hopefully reduce the comm problems, I just got a prepaid, pay-as-you-go cellular plan here in Manila specifically for my friends here, so, if you want, you guys can contact me via SMS later, starting 8PM Eastern (which is 8AM Manila time).
Obviously, I don't want to publish my new Manila cell phone number in a public blog, nor give it to just anyone, so here's what I want to do: if you want, you can PM me your cell number (include area code, please) and I will send you an SMS with my number. If you want an additional layer of security, you can PM your email address and we can exchange information via email, and if your address is a Yahoo email address, we can do it via YM (which was what started this whole idea after all heehee).
I know there is a cost to sending SMS or text (I think twenty cents per, unless you have one of those unlimited plans), but this is just an alternative to YM, after all - we can still do it the conventional way.
And since Manila has one of the more prohibitive per-call rates in the region, my new number is going to be stricty for SMS/text only.
K. So, B2W. TNT, and SYL.
