I just got this in an email. This is useful if you are in front of a computer and want to send a message to somebody without going through the painful process of texting from an antique cell phone (Gaa. I need a new phone).
Anyway, now you can email short messages, reminders, phone numbers and other important stuff to any mobile phone that supports text (SMS) messaging. Note: This might work for only carriers in the US and check with your mobile carrier regarding the charges for text messaging under your plan, of course!
1. Create a new email message.
2. In the “To” text box, enter the cell phone number using the following syntax:
Here is a list of some major carrier domains:
Virgin Mobile @vmobl.com
3. Create a message of 160 characters or less. You can also attach a .jpg file, if the cell phone you are sending to supports images.
4. Send the email.
