Man, you are clever.

Check this. If this is based on SMS/MMS, then I should be able to text you an address and have you return the pages as MMS.

You would still need an app that could translates the MMS back into a page and open it in a browser on your end.


Unless it reformatted the page, returning only the textual content. With the maximum size of an MMS being around 100kb (depends on the operator), this is a lot of text.

You could fetch a number of pages at once and read the response even on a feature phone. This can also be combined with a web interface to bundle pages or feeds together and associate them with a shortcode.
