Vodacom SMS via e-mail
I'm not in ZA right now and I didn't think I would need to receive an SMS on my ZA cellphone, but now I do. The people over at Vodacom's help desk doesn't seem to understand what I'm asking. I want to see my SMSes without having access to my cellphone. Can that be done? Can one get an e-mail whenever you get an SMS? Alternatively, can one somehow log into one's account at Vodacom and see a list of SMSes that you've received?
Short of sending my SIM card back to ZA via courier, so that a friend can check my SMSes, what are my options, do you think?
Vodacom has a SMS ROAMING service:
1) Before leaving RSA,simply SMS - ROAMON to 123 (Free within SA)
2) If you've already left RSA,simply SMS - ROAMON to +2782123 (R2.75 per SMS)
What can I do?
Send and Receive SMS,s. All voice and data funtionality is disabled while traveling internationally.
* Low- cost way to keep in touch.
* Single. predictable rate of R2.75 per SMS sent, regardless of your destination.
* available in more than 193 countries and 451 networks.
There is no SMS to Email Service. If you require more assistance use www.mybroadband.co.za Forums where Vodacom has a dedicated representative.

[Sorry for not replying sooner -- the forum's post notification system must be broken, because I asked for notification but I didn't get any.]
