Good news! No need to ask a friend nor wait for someone to send you a GMail Invite (if you still don’t have one yet). You can now sign-up for a GMail account with the use of your mobile phone. Yes! You had read me right! You’re mobile phone.
Just go to http://www.gmail.com and click on the
“Sign up for Gmail using your mobile phone” link, key-in the required information and your mobile number. Wait for the activation code to be sent by Google to your mobile phone, and wallah! You may now proceed in signing-up for your very own GMail account!
