My brother just got a new Blackberry. (I know.) And a new phone number. He uses Verizon in New York. When he sends me a text, his messages come to my Gmail account as emails from [hisnumber]@vtext.com. Whyyyyyyyy? Please help make it stop. [more inside]

How does the SMS feature in Gmail work? I know there's some kind of base of phone numbers used for it, but I assume those numbers send out thousands of texts per day; how does a reply end up at my account, instead of someone else's? If someone replies to one of my SMS messages sent from Gmail in a month, will the reply still be connected to me?
Is there a way to make certain emails appear as push notifications on the iPhone? Or, is there a way to easily enable/disable toggle a Gmail forwarding filter? [more inside]
gmail filters: I have a utilitarian phone that doesn't MMS. I have gmail set to forward incoming mail to my phone number as SMS. When I am mailed attachments, they usually bounce a Mail Delivery Sub. error. [more inside]

How can I archive my phone's text messages for future reference, without paying a lot in money or effort?
How can I make an archive of my SMS messages? In this era of network-accessible, searchable, archived, free, multi-gigabyte email storage, I'm a little miffed that my SMS storage is limited to arbitrary limit of 50 message on my phone. Lots of important things come in via SMS, and I hate how they just disappear. I get Twitters from friends, nice notes from my girlfriend, voice mail transcriptions from CallWave, business information via GOOG-411's text service... and so on. I'd like for the solution to cost as little as possible. I don't have an unlimited txt plan (I get a few hundred per month) so simply forwarding every SMS I receive and CCing every SMS I send to an email address isn't a very appealing solution as it really raises my SMS costs and takes effort.
