Sending SMS Messages via the web

I don’t always feel like reading for my cell phone every time I want to send a text message.  I have a bunch of these links bookmarked but I decided to post them here in case you didn’t know you could send a txt message via a computer. (Note: the recipient might get charged, of course, depending on their specific plan)

E-mail to text

There are some e-mail to text services, but the recipient usually has to have signed up and paid for this service, unlike the web forms above that are free:

[10digitnumber] (Bell and Solo)
[10digitnumber] (Virgin Mobile)
[10digitnumber] (PC Mobile)
[10digitnumber] and [10digitnumber]
[10digitnumber] (MTS Allstream Inc./ Manitoba Telecom Services Inc.)

Note some providers (such as Fido) are forcing the recipient to pay an extra monthly fee in order to receive e-mail to text messages.

  1. Hi Jordon,

    I am smartphoneless. Really can’t afford to use my wife’s cell phone to text anyone. But in the past, I had used Yahoo messenger to text friends who use text as their main form of communication. The only problem is having to stay signed on and wait for their reply. I have found text via computer helpful.
