When Coverage Sucks Email to SMS

Sending emails to any cell phone is very easy, the only catch is you must know the wireless carrier or the recipient. It will be received on a cell phone in the form of a SMS message to the recipient. If you know someone who is not in the office or infront of a computer and you want to deliver a quick message it works great. It is also great if the person does not have the luxury of a Blackberry or Email on their phone. Its also great when coverage sucks while you are in a meeting and just want to reply to some quick messages. Here are the email addresses for the most popular cellular phone carriers:
