It's easy to send an email as an SMS text message

Carrier Gateways

Most carriers provide an SMS Gateway for each phone line

This means you can send an email that will be received as an SMS text message

The following code snippet presents some SMS Gateways for most of the major carriers

Thus, to send a text message to '123-123-1234' with carrier ATT, I'd send an email to 1231231234@txt.att.net


  textGateways: [
    {
      carrier: 'ATT',
      gateway: '@txt.att.net'
    },
    {
      carrier: 'Verizon',
      gateway: '@vtext.com'
    },
    {
      carrier: 'T-mobile',
      gateway: '@tmomail.net'
    },
    {
      carrier: 'Alltel',
      gateway: '@message.alltel.com'
    },
    {
      carrier: 'Sprint',
      gateway: '@messaging.sprintpcs.com'
    },
    {
      carrier: 'Nextel',
      gateway: '@messaging.nextel.com'
    },
    {
      carrier: 'SunCom',
      gateway: '@tms.suncom.com'
    }
  ]
