How to Send an Email Without an Email Address

Save

Even if you do not have an email account, if you have a cellphone enabled for Web use and text messaging you can still send messages and photos to someone else's email address. This is possible through features offered by wireless service providers called SMS and MMS, which stands for Short Messaging Service and Multimedia Messaging Service respectively. Through SMS, more commonly referred to as text messaging, you can send short messages to someone's cellphone or email. MMS allows you to do the same thing with pictures and video clips.

Things You'll Need

  • Cellphone enabled for Web use and text messaging
