How to Send SMS Texts via Email

One day this week I left my phone at home and needed to text my wife a message. Fortunately, I discovered that you can send test messages (SMS) right from your email…and it is SUPER easy.


All you need to do is use an SMS to email gateway. Don’t worry it is much easier than it sounds.  Simply use the list below for the email address you need to use depending on which cell carrier you are sending your message to.





Virgin Mobile:


Metro PCS:

Boost Mobile:




U.S. Cellular:

Some carriers have a special, different email address for sending MMS messages containing images, etc. Check with your carrier for those specific details.
