SMS Gateways

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 why, 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]"

All you 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 he uses.
