Scott,

I for one stayed away from that "yes" because I didn't want to loose access
to my 'AirNote' account, the one that @stream was originally based on.

Well, it turns out that AirNote quit forwarding messages to my PCS and other
e-mail accounts. When I called in to check the status of the messages that
didn't get sent it said 'Terminated.'

I finally said yes after I realized it didn't do me any good to keep
avoiding that question anyway.

Last night I talked to VoiceStream and found out that I am still paying the
$8.00 a month for text messaging. I know I don't have to do that anymore,
but with the 8¢ a message over the first 75, I think I'll come out ahead by
paying for 500 instead.

After saying 'yes' you get the ability to change all sort of things on your
e-notes, but you STILL don't get a way to say don't deliver via e-notes but
send to ByeDesk instead. Sure ByeDesk takes about 45-50 seconds longer, but
the 16 character subject limitation on the e-notes renders the e-notes
worthless to me about 90% of the time! UGH.

Scott,

The options given you after you sign up are:

Change your nickname
Your address is automatically set up as your VoiceStream
phone#@voicestream.net (55522...@voicestream.net). You have the option of
changing this to a unique and fun address of your choice (e.g.,
joh...@voicestream.net).

Mobile Address book
Make a nickname for E-Mail addresses you use often. For example, you can set
up a shorter, easier to type nickname for
"firstname...@whereyouwork.com".

Send a message
You may send a message to anyone with an E-Mail address or VoiceStream
phone.

Help
Includes step by step instructions on how to originate, send and receive
short E-Mail messages.

Filters (Delivery control)
This tool gives you greater control over which E-Mail is forwarded to
another E-Mail address. For example, you may set up filters that:

1. Allow you to send a copy of all E-Mail messages from "Tom" to another
E-Mail address.

2. Allow you to send a copy of all E-Mail messages with a subject that does
not include the term "urgent" to another E-Mail address.

3. Send a copy of all your messages to another E-Mail address by setting up
a filter with the "@" symbol in the "From" field.

------- end of cut and paste ----

The Filters are really limited pretty bad compared to what @stream used to
offer. About all they can really do is forward to another e-mail account
with certain criteria.

But the Mobile address book is pretty cool. Since I basically use one
address and then have that address send it to the people listed in the
subject, I really like being able to send e-mail with just a single letter
instead of a complete e-mail address.
