How to send text messages, pictures or songs from pc to cell phone


Sponsored Links

If you are like me: there is no cell phone signal at work and Instant messages are not allowed. How can you send text messages to a cell phone.

As a matter of fact, you can send free messages to a cell phone from your e-mails although the message receiver has to pay the regular fee for the text message. You can just e-mail the cell phone using the following as the address for different cell phone carriers.  Please note: some carriers don’t support MMS.  Some cell phones only support text messages (SMS) not support MMS.

  • Alltel: phone
  • AT&T for SMS, for MMS
  • Nextel: phonenumber@messaging.nextel.comT-Mobile:
  • Verizon: for SMS:,   for MMS:
  • Virgin Mobile:
  • Sprint:
  • US Cellular: phone (SMS)  phone (MMS)

You can also send pictures to cell phones too, just keep in mind the file size has to be small.

To send pictures or mp3 songs, simple attaching the picture or mp3 in the e-mail and send to the cell phone using the address above according to the cell phone carrier.

In addition, you can send messages from pc to cellphone through the IM, such as MSN IM Yahoo IM etc.
