HOW CAN I SEND EMAIL TO TEXT (AND BACK)?
Posted on 2012-08-23
Is there a free app for the iTouch and/or software for the PC that lets
me send text messages to ANY phone capable of getting text messages?
I can usually do this IF I know the service provider of the contact; from that I
can find the domain and compose the address (ie email@example.com).
But what if someone emails and says: "text me at 123-555-1212" -- it's messy
to figure out their carrier.
Why should I have to know the carrier and then look up the domain?
I want to enter a phone number and a message and send; let the software
figure out how that number is connected. If it happens to be a land line
or a phone w/o texting, it should come back with an error.
While it usually works if I can figure out the text address, it often does not work
for the recipient of the text to reply -- frequently I do not receive an email
Maybe on the PC it's a plug-in for Thunderbird or other mail clients; or it
could be a website where you type number and message. I think there are
several paid monthly services that do this... but I'm looking for free.
