SMS to email and fax?
There is a free SMS to email service available, provided by Andrews & Arnold, who are Orange dealers. You send the SMS to 0973 577510, with the beginning of the SMS being the email address you are sending to.

Because there is also Demon's email to fax service, you can also send SMS to fax using the same number, prefixing your SMS with the full fax number in +441234 567890 format. This service is paid for by advertising -- there is a big advertisement on the fax or a smaller one at the end of the email message. The distinction between your message and the ad is clear enough.

If you sign up with eXcell at http://www.excell.to you can send emails by sending an SMS to the gateway number (in fact I think it works without signing up) but it is an overseas number, and the Orange SMSC won't seem to deliver to it.
