How to Use KidsEmail to Text 2

Did you know that you can get e-mail on your phone? This is a great way for kids to be able to “text” their parents messages and stay in contact without having a cell phone.

All you need to know is your cell phone’s e-mail address, we’ll explain how to figure that out so your kids can e-mail you via text.

Most carriers have “SMS gateways” which take email messages from the Internet and deliver them to their customers cell phones at text messages. You will need to know the recipients phone number as well as what carrier they are using.

For example 2085551212@vtext.com
