How to Send SMS by Internet

Short Message Service, or SMS, is easy to do from most cell phones. If you do not have this feature on your cell phone or cellular plan, you can still send an SMS text if you have access to the Internet.

  • Computer with Internet access
  • Phone number to which you wish to send an SMS text message

      Select the recipient's cellular provider from the "Select Provider" drop-down menu, and proceed to Step 6. If you do not know the provider, click the "Lookup" link next to the drop-down menu, and continue to Step 4.

Tips & Warnings

  • Identify yourself in the body of the text message if the recipient might not recognize your email address. This helps the recipient identify the sender, and you are more likely to receive a response.
