<h2>
3 Ways to&nbsp;Text&nbsp;From&nbsp;Laptop&nbsp;
</h2>
<p>
Texting is one of the easiest and most utilized forms of communication&nbsp;to date. However, what happens if you’re in a situation&nbsp;where&nbsp;you can’t use your phone?&nbsp;This could be caused by a dead battery, bad connection,&nbsp;it was lost or broken,&nbsp;you are in a&nbsp;meeting…the list goes on.&nbsp;
</p>
<p>
In any of the above cases, you still&nbsp;have the ability to&nbsp;send texts online.&nbsp;As long as&nbsp;you have the recipient’s phone number,&nbsp;name of&nbsp;service provider,&nbsp;and an&nbsp;Internet connection, you’re all set. The best part – there&nbsp;are no associated fees, only standard messaging rates&nbsp;will apply&nbsp;for recipients.&nbsp;&nbsp;
</p>
<p>
Here are&nbsp;3&nbsp;Ways&nbsp;to&nbsp;Send&nbsp;Texts&nbsp;from your&nbsp;Laptop:&nbsp;
</p>
<h3>
1. Email to&nbsp;Text&nbsp;&nbsp;
</h3>
<p>
If you know the recipient’s phone service provider, enter their cell&nbsp;number&nbsp;in the&nbsp;field where you would ordinarily&nbsp;input&nbsp;an&nbsp;email address.&nbsp;Combine their 10-digit number with one of the following domains&nbsp;to utilize email to text&nbsp;capabilities:&nbsp;&nbsp;

</p>
<p>
To put things into perspective,&nbsp;if you wanted to text the phone number (123) 456-7890 and their service provider&nbsp;was&nbsp;Verizon, you would enter&nbsp;<a href="http://mailto:1234567890@vtext.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">1234567890@vtext.com</a>&nbsp;in the email recipient box. If the user replies, the response will be delivered back to your email inbox.
</p>
<h3>
2. Text Through Wireless Carrier&nbsp;
</h3>
<p>
All major&nbsp;wireless carriers&nbsp;including Verizon, AT&amp;T, and T-Mobile,&nbsp;allow you to send&nbsp;texts from your laptop to&nbsp;a&nbsp;recipient’s&nbsp;cell phone, provided you have an account with them.&nbsp;&nbsp;
</p>
<p>
For example, if you have Verizon, simply <a href="https://www.verizonwireless.com/my-verizon/" target="_blank">sign in to your My Verizon Account </a>and&nbsp;follow&nbsp;their&nbsp;step-by-step&nbsp;instructions. Check with your provider to see if they offer&nbsp;this&nbsp;feature and&nbsp;be sure to note if you are restricted to their network.&nbsp;
</p>
