Recently Google labs launched SMS Channel in India. i have created many SMS channel including one for this blog. so i just thought we can use this service for any type of SMS updates using RSS feeds.
Recently i have seen that we can directly get the RSS feeds of GMAIL inbox. so we can use this RSS feeds to get these SMS updates. So if you want your own Gmail inbox SMS channel just put your GMAIL RSS link in SMS channel feed section.
Gmail RSS link will be like this :
But using this link in SMS channel will expose your Password and ID to whole world, so you can use Feedburner service to hide it [Highly recommended] and create your own RSS feed like this
Just put this RSS link into your SMS channel rss feeds and get SMS alert for Emails. Remember to select “By invitation only” in “Who can subscribe” option else anyone can subscribe to your sms updates and anyone is subscribed can get those SMS for each e-mail.
Currently this service is available only in India as Google SMS channel is only for india. Many indian carriers supports Google SMS channel like Airtel, Vodafone, Idea etc. so you can enjoy this service of SMS update.
But the only drawback is that if anyone got the link to your Gmail rss feeds he/she can read your e-mails directly !!
