Sending Texts from Email

I was actually looking up how to do different things with SMS (Short Message System) and how they interact with web pages and came across a way to send a text from an email. The only trick is you need to know the carrier.

So go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS_gateways#Carrier_Provided_Email_or_Web_to_SMS_gateways
and scroll down to

Carrier-Provided E-Mail or Web to SMS Gateways.

My text address with this method is 8585555555@vtext.com it looks like sending a picture through MMS is number@vmpix.com. I popped open gMail and sent myself a short little email.

For the most part if you want to email someone a texts on a regular basis you’ll have to have them look it up, but for everyone in a family on the same plan that would be easy.
