Default How to build your own cheap SMS to Email gateway? - 19-04-2014, 11:40

Task: I want my SMS messages get delivered in email.

In Android, there is an app for that, plain and simple.

What would be best is a simple 'black box' which 'just works' similar to

I send an SMS > I got an email notification, simple as that. I don't even want to see or touch the phone doing the task. It should just work.

The most straightforward way is I can buy a cheap Android phone, put it on a charger and next to Wi-Fi. But you already see it is not a winning proposition as there are many things can go wrong with this: phone freezes, battery dies, Internet disconnects, you name it.

I wonder if you can do this with perhaps a cheaper and more robust device built for just this purpose?
