When you are using the computer and you need to send information fast to someone on the go, try sending him an email to their phone. The recipient does not even have to have email synced to their phone to receive it--your email is received as a text message. Using your email can be faster than trying to fiddle with a cell phone keyboard, so the message will be received much faster.

Step 1

Check what cell phone provider the recipient has. You need this information because each provider has different email suffixes they use. If you do not know this information, you cannot use email to send the recipient a message.

Step 2

Open your browser email or your email program.

Step 3

Click "Compose" or "New."

Step 4

Type the recipient's phone number, including area code in the "To" box.

Step 5

Type "@" after the phone number, and then the provider's suffix. Verizon is "," AT&T is "," Boost is "," Cricket is "," Sprint is "," Nextel is "," T-Mobile is "," and Virgin Mobile is ""

Step 6

Give the email a subject and type your message in the body of the Email. Try to keep the message brief. The recipient will be receiving this as a text message, and normally text messages can only hold less than 200 characters in each.

Click "Send" when you are done. The recipient will receive the message on their phone in a few moments as a text message.


  • If you know the recipient has their email synced to their mobile phone, you can send an email to their usual email address.
  • If the recipient replies to your message, you will receive it via email.
