Get Orkut scrap alerts delivered as SMS for free

SMSChannelsLabsLogo This post must surely remind you about our previous post wherein we were able to get our Orkut scraps delivered as SMS using Mytoday ‘feed by SMS’ and Orkutfeeds service. But unfortunately, Mytoday server was overloaded and they stopped providing the service leaving all Orkut users sad ๐Ÿ™

But its the time for all India Orkut users to rejoice, ๐Ÿ™‚ as I have come up with another working trick to get all your Orkut scraps delivered on your mobile using Google SMS channels. Though getting Orkut scraps as SMS is officially available in Orkut, unlike them, this trick is absolutely free. ๐Ÿ™‚ Keeping in mind Devilsworkshop terms of not duplicating contents over the internet, I’ve not mentioned the detailed procedure on this blog, rather you can find the step-by-step guide on Rtcamp’s other blog related to mobiles – MobileGyaan.

Key Highlights of this trick:

  • Get Orkut Scrap alerts as SMS
  • This works using Google SMS channels and Orkutfeeds
  • Scrap alerts notification takes around 3-4 hours to reach mobile inbox
  • Unlike the previous case, only the sender name of scraps will be notified ๐Ÿ™

So guys, its the time for you to enjoy scrap alerts and for us to discover new things for you ๐Ÿ˜‰
Give this new trick a try, and let us know your views about it ๐Ÿ™‚

@pranay airan
Most welcome buddy ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey got the concept..
But dont understand why we need it, when orkut itself is delivering the scraps on your mobile by just registering your mobile with orkut!

Deepak Jain November 7, 2008

I’ve mentioned that as well..
Orkut is providing the service with a charge, but using this trick you can get scrap alerts for free ๐Ÿ™‚
Helpful for poor guy like me ๐Ÿ™

Orkut does not support all mobile networks. e.g. Airtel, BSNL.

what but i have regestered my mobile in orkut but still not getting the scraps as sms

Abhishek November 7, 2008


Well I dint get you?!
Orkut charges? Well I get them for free everytime without any charge,dunno what charges are you telling..?

If you are telling about charges after Basic Limit,then maybe coz I haven’t gone beyond my Basic limit! ๐Ÿ™‚

Each notification is costing you Rs. 2/- buddy. Check this page for details. Guess your balance must be deducting but you are not aware of it.

Abhishek November 8, 2008

Hey you are right..
But msges received dont cost…!
Only if I send then it does,I mean if I request to scrap from my mobile, but Scrap notification on my cell doesn’t cost me and its really spontaneous!

Deepak Jain November 8, 2008

Can you say me which network are you in and where do you use this feature?

Abhishek November 11, 2008

Chetan Gole November 30, 2008

Me too posted the stuff about the SMS alert for GMAIL inbox, but it is not safe, if you dont want to share your personal Scraps with others.

Deepak Jain December 1, 2008

Hey! I followed the required steps carefully but still didn’t get any scrap on my mobile. I have done it 10 days before and I received more than 50 scraps and most of them were text and less than 150 characters. I also added ORKUTFEED BOT on my orkut account. Still got no sms. Why???

Deepak Jain December 6, 2008

@Sarbartha Sau
Please recheck the whole procedure..
You must have left out some step there.
