You need to know the recipient phone's carrier.

 

If you were texting AT&T phones:

SMS / Text - 10digitphonenumber@txt.att.net

 

MMS (picture/video msg) - 10digitphonenumber@mms.att.net

Wilcre had a post about the many other carriers' email addresses.

 

Another way (the way I usually do it)...

 

I add cell phone numbers into my AIM buddy list and then just IM my friends' phones from AIM Express. This way you can keep a threaded conversation going without bothering with email, which oftentimes truncates messages.

Yep. That's the one. I figure you'd answer this if I wrote your name 😉
