How to Text From Your Laptop

If you haven’t heard by now, text marketing is one of the most effective marketing and communications channels available to businesses, nonprofits, and others. Thousands of organizations benefit from this kind of marketing automation, and if you haven’t invested in a comprehensive platform, you’re behind the curve.

What happens if you don’t have access to a phone or other mobile device? From dead batteries to poor cellular connection, there is an endless list of possible scenarios.

In all of the cases above, you still have the ability to send text messages online. Here are the three most common ways to text from your laptop.

3 Ways To Text From a Laptop

Most text message marketing service providers make it simple and easy to send a text message online. Here’s how to send a text from a laptop.

1. Email to Text

If you know the recipient’s phone service provider, enter their phone number in the field where you would ordinarily put an email address. Combine their 10-digit number with one of the following domains to utilize email to text capabilities:

U.S. Carrier 

SMS Gateway 

MMS Gateway 

T-Mobile 

@tmomail.net 

@tmomail.net 

AT&T 

@text.att.net 

@mms.att.net 

Sprint 

@messaging.sprintpcs.com 

@pm.sprint.com 

Verizon 

@vtext.com 

@vzwpix.com 

 

To put things into perspective, if you wanted to text the phone number (123) 456-7890 and their service provider was Verizon, you would enter 1234567890@vtext.com in the email recipient box. If the user replies, the response will be delivered right to your email.

2. Text Through Wireless Carrier

All major wireless carriers including Verizon, At&T, and T-Mobile allow you to send texts from your laptop to a recipient’s cell phone provided you have an account with them.

For example, if you have Verizon, simply sign into your My Verizon Account and follow the step-by-step instructions. Check with your provider to see if they offer this feature and be sure to note if you are restricted to their network.
