Mobile Email is a service that allows all Digicel users to send and receive emails FROM their mobile phones. It's as easy as using digiTEXT and means that you can now communicate with anyone - no matter where in the world they are. And, the cost to send your Mobile Email is the same as a normal digiTEXT. Receipt of Mobile Email messages is free of charge.
All handsets with SMS (text messaging) functionality can send and receive emails. Please see the info attached as it explains how to do this.

Initial set up is quick and easy and allows you to receive and send emails to anyone in the world.
Once an email message is sent to your phone via your mobile address, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org, you will receive the message as you would a digiTEXT.
