Does anyone know how to send files to cellphones (like how those ring tone websites do it..)?
I heard that you can send to [phonenumber]@example.com [where example.com is a wireless service picture messaging site], but then I heard that's not good. How do the ring tone websites do it?

Yes, this will work - I've emailed myself ringtones.
It may or may not work, with different carriers and different phones.
Verizon tries to block this, (so that they can collect revenue from "ringtone partners") for example, but some specific phones allow it.
For a while, all new phones had it blocked, then they apparently started backing-off on policy.
You need to know about any tricks for a particular phone. For example, some phones want the file named "example.mid", (Midi) even though the content may be MP3.
There may be another mechanism used by these sites. If so, I know nothing about it.
