If you would like to be notified of a system event by a SMS messsage, i.e., a text message, or otherwise have a need to send information from a computer to a phone by a text message, you can use a text to email capability provided by some phone service providers. To send a text message via email to a Verizon user, you can use the Verizon phone number for the person followed by @vtext.com - don't put any dots nor dashes in the phone number, just the digits of the phone number. E.g., if the person's phone number is 555-765-4321, you would send the message to
email@example.com. If the person uses Sprint for phone and text messaging service, you would append @messaging.sprintpcs.com to the 10-digit phone number, i.e.,
firstname.lastname@example.org. If the user has AT&T for his/her phone service, you can text the user by appending @txt.att.net to the number, e.g.
email@example.com. For T-Mobile, you can append @tmomail.net to the phone number.
