List of Email to SMS Gateways

This is a list of carriers providing access Short Message Service (SMS) transit via SMS gateways, allowing you to send SMS to a mobile phone via email.

The list provides email addresses to send an email and have it arrive as a text message on someone’s phone. The number must contain no punctuation. For instance, to send to a number typically expressed as 987-555-0100, one would email 9875550100@SMS-gateway.

This content was previously available on WikiPedia but deleted as not really encylopaedia-worthy. Since an article of mine was a major source, I copied it back here for posterity.

I will make periodic updates and corrections. If you have something to add contact me.

How it works

Find your provider in this list. Replace the number with your own mobile number, adding additional prepended numbers if neccessary.

Send a test message to the email address. You should either receive the email as an SMS or a delivery failure report from the mobile provider.

Make the message short and avoid adding signatures etc. to the outgoing email or you will receive multiple useless messages. some providers require activation before allowing this service to avoid spam.

If you receive a failure report try various combinations of the phone number formatting (ommitting zeros, international format, etc.) to see if any work.

If it is not working, try contacting your provider to see if there are any additional activation steps required and for help on appropriate formatting for the number/email address.

If you receive updated information from the provider please drop a note in the comments below and I’ll update the list.

The List

Note that some carriers have multiple gateways. The SMS gateway refers to plain text messages only. MMS refers to Multimedia Messaging Services which are generally capable of carrying messages which include text, pictures and audio.
