Email to text

Previously I was able to recieve email as a text message on my phone it is a Pantec link. It is set up as a prepaid go phone.  I would use the 10 digit phone number follwed by @txt.att.net basically like this 310722XXXX@txt.att.net

 

But a few months ago it stopped working I tried it again yesterday and I recieved this delivery response notification

 

[Return Code 550] sid: x6n61m00G0lmwaY01 :: 5.1.1 <310722XXXX@txt.att.net> recipient does not exist here.

 

Any info about this situation would be appreciated

 

Bob

Re: Email to text

It should be mms.att.net or sms.att.net not txt.att.net

Re: Email to text

So is the answer txt.att.net, the reason i am inquiring is 1 member of my first response team can receive the txt.att.net message I sent, but only from GMail....no from our organizations domain.

Its getting a little frustrating because all the Verizon messages are going through without a problem.

Re: Email to text

As you've been told before, this is a user to user community forum. An actual ATT rep may not ever read your rant. Or it could be days before they do. You need to find a working phone and CALL ATT customer service. (Even if a CS rep immediately read your rant, they don't know who Cableman is).

Re: Email to text

310722XXXX@txt.att.net is what I've been using for years and it still works for me.

 

I've gotten things the last few days and I just tested it moments ago.

    If I get a picture from a friend with an email address as their ten digit phone number xxx-xxx-xxx.mms.att.net, does this mean they are using yahoo email or att.net email acct Thank you Shelby Hall

    I've been using various @txt.att.net addresses.  Some addresses that worked previously now fail; sbcsmtp8.sbc.com (144.160.128.144) says "Domain of recipient address txt.att.com does not exist".  Others still work fine, apparently refuting the diagnostic of the former.  The 'host' command agrees that txt.att.com DOES exist.  In case it matters, the failing phone number is in area code 814, the successful in 617.
