How to send free text or SMS messages online or from computer

Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

SMSThere are several online services that allow you to send free SMS or text messages to a cell phone using your computer. Below is a short list of a few of the services we suggest. Each of these services do not require you to register or download any software. Keep in mind that while sending a text message with these services is free, receiving them may not be.

Free services for all carriers

Note: These free services are for sending a text message to another person. You cannot receive a text message from another person with these services.

Specific cell phone carriers

The following is a listing of all the major cell phone carriers e-mail addresses, which may be used to send SMS messages over e-mail. For example, if you had a friend with the cell phone number 555-123-4567 and AT&T as their carrier, you could text them by sending an e-mail to [email protected]

Tip: You can attach a picture to a SMS message, just like you would attach a picture to a regular e-mail message.
