E-Mail Text Messages to a Phone
Drewziob asked the Answer Line forum how he can email a text message to a cell phone.
Each major cell phone carrier has a domain name for just this purpose. And each cell phone's number--with the area code but without parenthesis or dashes--is the first part of an email address.
For instance, Verizon's texting domain is vtext.com. If my phone number was 415-555-1234 (which it isn't), you could text me by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Here are some other domains:
Virgin Mobile: @vmobl.com
My thanks to the folks at All Things Marked for providing me with that list.
What about going the other way? Just enter the email address into your phone.
