How to Text Message
Many cellular carriers assign email addresses to cellular phone numbers and support SMS or text messaging by email. You can text message from your email account for most cell phone providers. If your friend has unlimited texts and you have limited or do not have text messaging on your cell phone, you can text them from your email account. It does not cost you anything and you can send and receive just like you would on a normal cell phone. You will save your fingers from being sore from texting!
To use, compose a short email message using less than 160 total characters in Outlook (or any email client) and address it to the cellular number at the carrier's email domain. Remember to remove your signature from the message before sending. Note that some carriers will break apart larger messages into 160 character messages, others will deliver only the first 160 characters.
The phones only support plain text messages but the carriers strip multipart HTML, so you don't need to remember to switch to plain text format.
Email sent to cell phones is billed to the subscriber as a text message.
The major US cellular carriers use the firstname.lastname@example.org_domain.com format for SMS to text capable cell phones, with a limit of 160 characters in the subject and message body (total).
Just replace [10DigitNumber] with the ten digit phone number you are trying to reach (area code + local number).
Verizon users can register an alias at vtext.com to give out instead of their phone number. Both email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org will be valid addresses for the phone.
