All mobile phones, generally, accept emails - why don't you send an email?

For example, ATT phones can receive emails via 10digitphonenumber@txt.att.net (or something similar).

All major mobile-phone carriers have e-mail addresses that feed into your SMS inbox which means you can send an email and it is received as a text.  Here is a chart: for the email addresses:

Sprint phonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com
Verizon phonenumber@vtext.com
T-Mobile phonenumber@tmomail.net
AT&T phonenumber@txt.att.net

This way, you can send a simple email and it arrives as a text.
