as a matter of fact, the i-mode mail was designed to compete
with J-Phone's SkyMail (3 concatenated SMS with e-mail interworking).
it failed and won't be able to compete with J-Phone or au/KDDI's
ezweb_at_mail in the foreseeable future.
FOMA got 3 simple retries but the whole service is based on poorly
designed NEC i-mode center. the new i-shot at rescue is just yet
another failure. I think all over there, Nokia, Ericsson, CMG, and
Logica should try hard to replace those NEC servers with MMSC.
DoCoMo still pays better than other carriers.
