to gift wrap SMS
you've thought about buying SMS as a gift for people. After
all, you can buy it on-line anytime and no line-ups or fights
for parking at the shopping center. Plus, it's a gift that
reflects what the holiday season is about - being together
and connected with the people who matter.
people like to open packages, so how can you get the benefits
of buying SMS credits on-line while still making it special?
Try one of these ideas on how to make SMS a memorable gift:
Take a sheet of paper and print, write, paint, or draw a message
that says something like "you have just received ###
SMS credits to stay connected with your family and friends."
Add pictures or colour for extra decoration. Put it in a box
and tie a pretty bow around it. Beautiful, thoughtful, and
2. Make a certificate, complete with calligraphy writing and
good quality paper. Roll it up like a scroll and tie a ribbon
around it. Makes the perfect stocking stuffer.
Thinking of buying a new cell phone for someone? Give SMS
as an extra surprise. Once they've activated their brand new
cell phone, send them an SMS on their new phone with part
2 of your gift. Two surprises in one!
4. Give them a personalized SMS/phone package. Buy some SMS
tones, songs, wall paper, and face plates. Put them all
together and you've got a thoughtful, personalized gift.
5. Know someone who could use SMS but doesn't know how to
do it? Enlist the help of the iPiPi.com
team! Tell us how many credits you'd like to buy and for
whom. We'll create an account for them and send them a special
SMS message from you.
Put your own twist on any of the above ideas. The key to a
great gift is demonstrating that you put some real thought
into the person you're giving it to. Good luck!
Question of the month: How
do I reply to an SMS?
to an SMS is usually quite simple:
know what many of you are thinking: it isn't always
you experience problems, keep this in mind:When you're
replying, you should see the phone number you're sending
the SMS to. This is usually done automatically, but
sometimes your phone provider doesn't do this. If
this happens, re-enter the gateway number
when you're sending an SMS message.
Put the gateway
numbers you use into your phone's address book
so you can reply quickly
that didn't work:
Are the settings in your iPiPi.com
account (SMS Settings screen) set to allow incoming
Was the reply sent within 7 days?
Does your friend's wireless phone plan allow for
Does your account have SMS credits? You are charged
1 credit for each message, sent or received

Season's Greetings from all of us at iPiPi.com.
all want you to have a safe and happy holiday season, so we
advise you to do (and do not) the following:
finish your gift shopping ahead of time. Trying to find
that "perfect" gift on short notice is not fun.
Buy ahead so you can kick back and drink egg nog while everyone
else is going crazy at the mall (psst! That means... start
DO NOT buy your significant other a gift that you want for
yourself. They'll see right through your "gift"
and will you be in trouble!
buy something for yourself. If it's the season of giving,
you might as well make yourself happy too.
DO NOT make a fruitcake. Chocolate cake is always better.
always remember: don't drive and text.
