How to Send a Text Message to a Cell Phone From Your Computer For FREE

Have you ever been in the situation where you want to send someone a text message, but don’t have a cell phone on hand? Well here’s how to do it, easily:

The first way to send a text message to a cell phone from your computer is go the carrier’s website and look for a tool that most carriers have on their website that allows you to send a text message to one of their subscribers.

If you are not sure what carrier the number you want to text to is on, then just to here and enter it:

https://www.wirelessamberalerts.org/index.jsp

You do not need to sign up for the alerts to get the carrier. After you first submit the number, it will ask you to agree to their TOA. On that same page, it will tell you what carrier that phone number is on.

The second way, which is easier and quicker, is to simply send them an email. All you have to do is look at the list below of 106 providers, delete the user name of the email address that corresponds with the carrier that the person who you are sending a text message to has, and replace it with their phone number.

So, for example, if I wanted to send a friend a text message from my computer, and my friend has Verizon as their carrier, then I would do this:

Friend’s cell number who has Verizon as their carrier: (555) 123-1212
Default Verizon Email for texting to Verizon numbers: number@vtext.com
Email address that I’ll use to send a text message to my friend: 5551231212@vtext.com

Take note of the amount of characters you are able to put in your text message. The amount of characters allowed by each carrier is noted in the list below. If you don’t want to count them yourself, then copy and paste what you want to write into a blank MS Word document, and then go to TOOLS>WORD COUNT. The number that you want to look at is the one that is labeled, “characters with spaces”.

Enjoy!
