Suggestion Sep 8, 2008

Hi Mahmoud,
first, the simplest way would be to review your mobile carrier's (and/or other domestic carriers') offering. They may have such a service as "E-mail to SMS" (names may differ), which means that a special e-mail address is derived from your mobile number, and you can set up e-mail forwarding to that address from your mailbox. This special address should look like this /your phone number/@/mobilecarrierdomain/ . This service will be either a subscribtion or "pay-as-you-go" service.
Second, the services you mentioned do exist indeed. They are largely "pay-as-you-go" services. I knew some Russian websites offering such a service (I am not sure all of them had English version). One of them is . If you will fail to use the first suggestion, I may try to recollect / find again these websites.
Hope this helps,

China Mobile users Sep 20, 2008

For China Mobile users, they can get a account which is provided by China Mobile and then direct the new arrivals at your to your account. When your account receives a mail, you will receive a SMS notification. accounts are not free. In Jiangsu province where I live, they charge 1 RMB per month, which is almost nothing.
