Sending SMS through emails. Instant messaging. Tech-Recipes.




SMS isn't just for sending text messages from one phone to another -- it's also a great way to get email messages on your phone.

Yes, you can get email on your phone! All you need to know is your cell phone's email address.

Most carriers have "SMS gateways" which take email messages from the Internet and deliver them to their customers' cell phones as SMS text messages. The trick is that you need to know what carrier the recipient's phone is on -- it's not enough to know their phone number. That's because the carrier determines what the email address of the receiving phone is going to be. For example, Cingular phones' address are all "something@cingularme.com" while Verizon phones are "something@vtext.com."

Sending SMS through email is very, very easy. If you can be reminded through email, you can now be reminded through SMS.

Do not forget that SMS is limited to 160 characters so be short.
