Receive SMS on Mobile from Yahoo Chat

Posted by Girish Krishnan on December 21, 2006

This is old stuff, esp for people who have used this feature in USA. But for folks in India, this is relatively new and untested for most part. So, in layman’s terms lemme pose a simple question – what do i do to link my phone to Yahoo chat and how do i receive messages when i am not online?

The answer is simple – get the latest version of Y! messenger, go to preferences and edit your mobile device option. Set your mobile number over there and confirm the code that you receive as an sms…u r done!!

Now if you log out of messenger and click the “sign in to <your number>” option that appears in the messenger itself, your friends who are on messenger would see your status as “I’m on sms” and you would automatically receive all the messages on your mobile phone “free of cost”! You would be signed off your mobile phone the next time you log in to messenger chat.

The only caveat here is that you would be charged “IF” you reply to your incoming sms’s – you could always avoid doing that 🙂
