Did you run up $30 in extra text messaging charges last month? Not enough service to send text messages at the office? Well, never fear — you can use any email account to send and and receive text messages between friends and family on most any major wireless provider.

Make sure you know what wireless carrier the person you are trying to reach uses, and replace ‘number’ with the 10-digit number of the person you are texting. Voila.

AT&T: number@txt.att.net
Verizon: number@vtext.com
Sprint: number@messaging.sprintpcs.com
T-Mobile: number@tmomail.net
Qwest: number@qwestmp.com
Nextel: number@messaging.nextel.com
Virgin Mobile: number@vmobl.com
Alltel: number@message.alltel.com
U.S. Cellular: number@email.uscc.net
Metro PCS: number@mymetropcs.com
Powertel: number@ptel.com
Suncom: number@tms.suncom.com

Here’s a tip: If you’re a real ‘texting Tammy,’ save yourself some time and add the address to your phone book for quick and easy one click texts.

  • Graduated from a “flip phone” to a Droid and I would like to learn how to send a text with an attached photo.
    I have down loaded a manual that covers my Droid but it seems to assume that I am an acopmlished user of a previous “smsrt” phone.
    Any help would be appreciated.

  • I found this guide on how to send and receive SMS from computer for android phone users.

    Good luck!

    Hey, does anyone know how to send a text message from the internet?

  • I don’t see how you can send a msg from your cell unless you log in to your email address ie yahoo, hotmail from your cell and send the msg resulting in a text on the cell you are sending it to. How can you input the number on your cell to send without having to log in to to yahoo or other carrier?

    • Assuming most people have smartphones, there also is an option in non-smartphones as well to link your email account to your phone so you can send & receive emails. Then, you would input that contact’s email address in your phonebook with their number and the web domain from their cellphone carrier listed in the aforementioned.
      Coolio?
