Sending an Email to your Cell Phone
Email to Cell
This article describes how to send an email to a cell phone. Have you ever found yourself receiving a text message from a friend on your cell and wanted to just type a response back on your laptop? Send them a text message from your email!
At one point or other, I've wondered how the wireless phone and internet and domain are connected. I mean don't they use the same operational framework of signal-towers and satellites? Well, the answer is yes. One piece of the puzzle towards becoming more interconnected with your cell and web is to be able to send text messages to anyone's cell through email. It's actually quite easy - you just need to follow a few simply steps.
1) First, you must set up an email account (obviously).
2) Next, determine the cell's carrier and find its equivalent email address from the list below. This is the carrier's SMS gateway and is essentially like any other email address you've ever used. So you must know the carrier as well as the number.
3) Send an email using your email account to the cell phone's address. It should read like a text message.
