Send text messages from your PC

Sending a text message from your computer:

  1. Open your e-mail program and start a new e-mail message.
  2. Enter the cell phone number in the To: box using the format number@teleflip.com, where “number” is the phone number of the cell phone to which you’re sending the message.

Many cell phone carriers allocate e-mail addresses to their customers’ phone numbers to enable them receive e-mail text messages. If you know the carrier of the cell phone you want to send text messages to, you can use it instead of the teleflip.com. ¬†Here is a list of common carriers:

Nextel: @messaging.nextel.com
Sprint: @messaging.sprintpcs.com
T-mobile: @tmomail.net
VoiceStream: @voicestream.net
Verizon: @vtext.com (text only) or @vzwpix.com (photos and video)

3. Type your message of up to 160 characters in the message box and then click Send.
