SMS isn’t just for sending text messages from one phone to another — it’s also a great way to get email messages on your phone.

Yes, you can get email on your phone! All you need to know is your cell phone’s email address.

Most carriers have “SMS gateways” which take email messages from the Internet and deliver them to their customers’ cell phones as SMS text messages. The trick is that you need to know what carrier the recipient’s phone is on — it’s not enough to know their phone number. That’s because the carrier determines what the email address of the receiving phone is going to be. For example, Cingular phones’ address are all “ This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ” while Verizon phones are “ This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .”

Sound complicated? It’s not. All you really need to do is 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 a friend’s phone, just ask them which carrier they use, and off you go!

(Note: For the major carriers, I’ve included a link to a page with more detailed information on how SMS works with that carrier, how much it costs, and where you can find more information. In the list below, just click any carrier’s highlighted name to find out more.)
