How Do I Send And Receive Text And Picture Messages Via Email?

 

Text Messages

 

  When you have text messaging on your phone, you are automatically given an email address to which people can send you text messages right to your phone from any email software package. Your text messaging email address will be comprised of your Thumb Cellular phone number (with area code, no spaces or dashes) plus the extension @sms.thumbcellular.com. For example: 9895551212@sms.thumbcellular.com . You can send texts as emails by choosing that option when you send the message and sending to a regular email address.  Since text messages are only meant to be short messages of 160 characters each, lengthy emails sent to your phone may come across as multiple texts.

 

Picture Messages

 

If you have picture messaging enabled on your phone with a picture messaging feature, pictures may be sent to your phone by using your Thumb Cellular phone number (10 digits) plus the extension @mms.thumbcell.com.  For example: 9895551212@mms.thumbcell.com . Alternatively, you can send pictures to an email address by choosing that method to send when you take or select a picture.  Please note larger picture messaging files or MMS (multimedia messaging service) files may be too large to receive or may take a while to be sent to your phone
