How to Send an SMS to a Cricket Customer

by Michelle Varsallona

If you are not a Cricket customer or if you do not have your cell phone at hand, you can still send a SMS text message to someone who does have Cricket service. You have a few different ways you can send a message to someone, by your cell phone, by email or by instant message. If you are on a computer, by email or instant message may be the easiest way to communicate with the person because the text message is free and you have the convenience of using a full keyboard and monitor.
