You can change service providers any time or the email address to which your gmob is forwarded. Just send a text to 32323. You will get a text with a link. When you click on the link our system will recognize you as a gmob user. It will show your gmob address and what email address your gmob is currently forwarded to. You will see the text, "Change my forward email address?" Click on this link and update your email address. Simple! You won't even have to notify anyone of the change. They will already have your gmob email address. That never has to change (unless you change your phone number).
What email platform does gmob require?
gmob works with ANY email platform because your gmob email is simply forwarded to your current email provider. Whether you are using Gmail, Yahoo, MSN/Hotmail, Comcast or any private email you send/receive mail just as you always have. We are basically an email router for you.
Does gmob limit the amount of data I send or receive?
You can send or receive ANY size document through gmob. You are only limited by your current email providers' standards of service.
Could this be a violation of my privacy?
Some people may not want their phone number available for privacy reasons. No problem, simply give that person the email address your email provider has given you. But remember, in most, if not all cases, when giving someone your email address they already have you phone number.
