"Self-committed" [paid] and Permanently Insane account holders now have the option of letting visitors send them text messages on their cellphone or pager. The cool part about this is that:
* Your cell/pager number stays secret. Only InsaneJournal knows it, and uses it to send you text messages from other users. * You can control who can send you text messages (anybody, registered users, or only people you list as a friend).
From there you can select your cellphone or pager provider and number. If your provider isn't listed, but your service supports text messaging, please post a request in the lj_textmessage community (http://lj_textmessage.livejournal.com/) with the name of your service, and instructions on how to send text messages to it. The community can be found here: http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=lj_textmessage . InsaneJournal updated from the LiveJournal codebase, so if LiveJournal supports your service, InsaneJournal should support it as well.
If you receive text messages via e-mail, you must include the following information:
* The name of the service (be specific). * The e-mail address which is used to send messages. * Any limit on the length of the name of the sender, the subject, and the message. * Any other information you may have.
If you receive text messages via a web page, you must include:
* The name of the service (be specific). * The URL of the page, preferably of the receiving script. * The address of the recipient (phone number? username?). * Any limit on the length of the name of the sender, the subject, and the message. * Any extra fields that need to be submitted. * Any other information you may have.
They'll be more than willing to add support for it, providing that you are willing to help test the service. This will ordinarily mean that you must be willing to receive a test message and let LiveJournal know whether you received it and whether it came through properly formatted and without anything cut off, etc. There is also the possibility that in some cases, more than one test message will be required.
Important Note: Although InsaneJournal makes no extra charge for this feature, your service provider may charge for each text message you receive. Please check with your service provider for details.
