Emailing Text Messages to Cell Phones - The Email Domains

If one is sitting at one's computer, it is often convenient to send a text message, from that device, versus tapping it into your phone. Simply add such email addresses, as additional email addresses for your contacts, and let the messaging begin!

To send a text message to any phone, use the phone_number@email_domain syntax, where phone_number is the 10-digit phone number. Below are the major carriers' addresses.

AT&T MMS: phonenumber@MMS.att.net
AT&T: phonenumber@txt.att.net
Alltel: phonenumber@message.alltel.com
Cingular: phonenumber@cingularme.com
Metro PCS: phonenumber@MyMetroPcs.com
Nextel: phonenumber@messaging.nextel.com
Powertel: phonenumber@ptel.net
