We’re not all “txting” yet (properly known as SMS). If you want to send a text message to the kids, a friend, or associate and don’t have twiddle fingers on your cell phone, just email the text!
Each cell provider has a different email address to EMAIL a text message. Here is a complete list of each email by cell provider: http://www.livejournal.com/tools/textmessage.bml?mode=details
- Find out which email address to send to: http://www.livejournal.com/tools/textmessage.bml?mode=details
- Create an email to one of the addresses as specified in that link. If it says, email@example.com, replace NUMBER with the 10-digital number. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your sending to a Verizon customer, use: email@example.com.
- Compose your email, but don’t write too much. SMS’ can typically only send/receive a max number of letters (about 160 characters).
- Send away! Your recipient should get your text message in a few seconds.
Make sure you’re up on your lingo… see how many of these you know!
