  • You can send a text from your email account to a cell phone.

  • The test worked, Dave!

    If you are using Windows 10 or 11, there is an already installed app called "Your Phone". If you open it, you connect it to your cell phone and you can use your laptop to send text messages directly to anyone in your contact list with a cell phone#, use your laptop to make calls, and manage your photo library (like for sending photos to your grandkids via text).

  • If you wanted to send me a text message from your email:

    1- open your email program and click on whatever starts a new message
    2- address the email to my cell# and provider, ex. 8043xxxxxx@vtext.com
    3-compose the body of your email and click send. It will arrive on my cell phone as a text, not an email.

    I think you have my cell, so give it a try.

  • Texting, cell phone to cell phone is common. Using watsap is also common.
    Regular texting is like using a phone line. If you send pics, it will use data. Cheap folks like me, have limited data. Watsap uses and needs a wifi connection. Most folks have this, along with many stores like Starbucks and Mc Donalds. Sending pics is more efficient with watsap. Most phone have email access, using either data or wifi.
    You use the system that works best for you and your plan. Some folks have unlimited data. That costs $$$, a bit like making large payments on a new truck.

  • Use the same address Ed gave you: 8043xxxxxx@vtext.com instead of his regular email address. That is for Verizon. Each carrier has a different address. Some time back someone on this web site posted a listing for many carriers.

    My problem is figureing out which carrier a person is using. Company my grandson is with uses three different carriers. One finally worked!

    Good Luck,

    Jack
