Send SMS Messages For Free Via Email

Send any phone SMS messages by Email

Here’s a pretty massive list of email gateways that will let you send SMS messages to cell-phones through email. All you need to do is replace the ‘phonenumber’ or ’10digitphonenumber’ with the recipients cell # and send away!

What’s an instant way to relate to all your customers regardless of how big of an affiliate scum-bag you are? By making them think you’re both from the same city.

It might be a few miles off for some locations and give you the city next door, but over-all it’s pretty spot on and a great little tool that’s only a few lines of code. Best of all, you don’t need any type of Google developer key as it’s not tied to any specific website (i.e. you don’t need to register the site for it to work). Enjoy
