Texting

Postby Dancesatmoonrise » Mon Aug 06, 2012 10:06 am

Hey, I'm pretty sure there's a way that one can text to someone's cell phone using email on a computer. I think there's a special domain that the wireless carrier uses for this purpose. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks!

The link Fleetmack provided works to find the correct internet address for emailing a text message to a phone. Thanks, dude!

Much depends on what you are trying to do.

Google voice or many other "free text" sites can be faster for this. http://voice.google.com. AFAIK all of them require you to have a +1 (us/canada) number and will only send to +1 (us/canada) numbers, but you then don't have to worry about the carrier.
