Did you know that you can generate text messages (txt) from your email? Here's how:
- Open Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Web Access.
- Click "New Email" at the top.
- Enter the recipient's cell phone number in the "To:" field as their 10-digit cell phone number, followed by the "@" sign.
- After the "@" symbol, add their carrier, such as "vtext.com." For example, if the recipient was on the Verizon network and his number was "1-234-567-8901," the "To:" field would read "firstname.lastname@example.org."
- Here is a list of major carriers:
- Sprint: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
- AT&T: email@example.com
- Qwest: firstname.lastname@example.org
- T-Mobile: email@example.com
- Verizon: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Virgin Mobile: email@example.com
- Nextel: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Alltel: email@example.com
- Metro PCS: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Powertel: email@example.com
- Boost Mobile: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Suncom: email@example.com
- Tracfone: firstname.lastname@example.org
- U.S. Cellular: email@example.com
- Type your message in the body of the email. Keep your message short, as most cell phones can only accommodate 140 characters per text message.
- Click "Send." Your email will show up as a text on the recipient's cell phone.
