For Indians, I have written a post which describes in detail about receiving orkut scraps as sms. This post concentrates on most of the cellular networks in all the countries and few more tricks which works for Indian networks too. I recommend you reading my previous articles for detailed description of the services I have mentioned here.
For this, again I make use of Orkutfeeds. Get the subscription url for your orkut scrapbook as I have described here. You may use following methods to get your scrap directed to your mobile phone.
1. Determine your cell phone’s email id and use RSSFWD to send scrapbook feed updates to your mobile phone. Easiest way to determine your mobile phone’s email id is to send an email from your cell phone to your mail id (it costs you :exclaim_ee:) and look for from address in mail. In RSSFWD, you need to enter your cell phone’s mail id instead of your email id.
2. Yahoo! Alerts:
This is quite simple, you need to register your mobile for Yahoo! Mobile or Yahoo! Messenger. Goto Yahoo! Alerts page for feeds. Enter the feed url for your orkut scrapbook and select your mobile device to receive alerts. This trick did not work for me when I used my messenger phone (Spice, Karnataka, India.) to receive alerts. My network is compatible with messenger but did not work for alerts. For detailed description of using Yahoo! Alerts, I recommend you reading this post.
3. We have few more sites like SendMeRss or MyToday(India) or any other applicable for your geographic location. Just use the same trick, use the feed generated by orkut feeds and subscribe to that using any services like the ones above mentioned. Or use your cell phone’s email address and signup for that mail notification.
