How to Send Email Messages to Phone

It is possible to receive email messages to your phone. The majority of carriers have “SMS gateways”. They take email messages from the Internet and deliver them to their customers’ cell phones as SMS text messages.  This means you can send email message which will be converted into SMS text message, and sent directly to the mobile phone. This can be useful for those who need to receive important messages quickly and accurately, especially if the person you are trying to contact is only available by mobile phone.


Teleflip is an easy way to send email to any phone. Just address it to [10-digit phone number] This service allows to get emails and choose where you get emails from. No extra costs, fancy phones or contracts.


Google Mobile provides free service to send free messages. Note that charges from your carrier for usage may apply.

Just enter your name, your friends mobile number and your message and we’ll send your text instantly. Completely free of charge.


GismoSMS provides service to send free messages to any mobile phone. There is no charge to send messages with Gizmo SMS however the receiver may have charges for receiving the message.


Pikamo lets you send text messages worldwide from your phone or from our social networking website. Peekamo is now available in 179 countries with support for over 500 mobile providers. Use Pikamo on your HTC camera phone and see just how effective it is.

SMS Gateways

In order to send an email message to a phone, it is not enough to know the recipient’s phone number. You also need to know what carrier the recipient’s phone is on, since the carrier determines what email address of the receiving phone is going to be. For example, Cingular phones’ address are all “[email protected]” while Verizon phones are “[email protected]
Find your carrier in the list below, and then use the pattern shown there to figure out your email address. If you want to send email to friends’ phone, just ask them which carrier they use.

    I tried sending an email to an Orange company phone in France but it failed, is there a logical mistake that could cause this? or could it simply be because im sending it from the US?
