How to Text to T-Mobile From a Computer

by C. Taylor

T-Mobile offers two methods of sending SMS text messages from your computer to a T-Mobile subscriber. If you are currently a T-Mobile customer and have a My T-Mobile account, you can access the online messaging tool to send messages to other T-Mobile customers. However, T-Mobile also converts specially-formatted emails sent to a T-Mobile cellular number into an SMS text message and delivers it directly to the customer's phone.
