Send txt msgs via your email addy


Recommended Posts

I do a lot of texting this time of the season with draft updates, so I did a little digging to see if I could send a text message to a cell phone by way of my email account. The answer is yes.


It is so much easier to type from my keyboard or copy and paste messages or links, then trying on a cell phone.



Anyone interested in doing so




The major US cellular carriers use the 10_digit_number@cell.carrier_domain.com format for SMS to text capable cell phones, with a limit of 160 characters in the subject and message body (total).


Carrier Send Email to phonenumber@....


Alltel @message.alltel.com

AT&T @mms.att.net

Nextel @messaging.nextel.com

Sprint @messaging.sprintpcs.com

SunCom @tms.suncom.com

T-mobile @tmomail.net

VoiceStream @voicestream.net

Verizon @vtext.com (text only)

@vzwpix.com (pictures and videos)


Verizon users can register an alias at vtext.com to give out instead of their phone number. Both alias@vtext.com and phone_number@vtext.com will be valid addresses for the phone.
