Using email to send iPad text messages; photo recovery program for camera card that has become corrupt

By Steve Alexander

JewishWorldReview.com | (MCT) iPad texting is feasible, it's limited to sending text messages to other Apple devices, such as an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or Macintosh computer.

Cletus Willems of Edina, Minn.; Aaron Heagerty of Santa Cruz, Calif.; and others suggested that the mother, Maurine Dyrdahl of Mounds View, Minn., should instead bypass pure text-messaging in favor of a free hybrid solution that involves email and texting. By sending an email message to the phone number of the intended text recipient, the email will emerge on the recipient's phone as a text message. Text recipients would email back.

This has long been possible, and has the advantage of allowing an iPad user to send a message to any device that has a cellphone number, regardless of what type of cellphone it is. The catch is that you need to know the correct email address for the cellphone's service provider in order for it to work. For instance, to send an email that will be received as a text message on an AT&T phone, the email must be addressed to number@txt.att.net. For Sprint phones, the address is nnumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com, for Verizon Wireless it's nuumber@vtext.com and for T-Mobile the address is number@tmomail.net.

But there is a limitation to this messaging method. Although you are sending an email, the recipient is receiving a text message, which is limited to 160 characters. So it's best to keep your email message short.

QUESTION: I purchased a new Windows 7 laptop last June. At the time, it was much faster than my old PC. But now the startup is slowing down. Is this related to the number of programs that run during startup? How can I remove some of them?

-Bill Coyle, Reading, Pa.

ANSWER: I think you've inadvertently downloaded some junk software, possibly malicious, that is slowing down your system. Go to MalwareBytes.org and click "free download" to download a program that will help get rid of junk programs and malicious software. After you run the program, be sure that your PC is protected by antivirus software.

Q: Can you suggest a photo recovery program for a 4-gigabyte SD (Secure Digital) camera card that has become corrupt?

-Martha Caparell, South Bend, Ind.

A: This is becoming a bigger problem as more people store their photos and data on camera memory cards and USB flash drives. You can find reviews of six data recovery programs from Computerworld at http://tinyurl.com/bzn8xhe. Prices range from free to $70.
