If you want to send an email to a Verizon cell phone number and have it appear as a text message on the phone, you can use Verizon’s email-to-text feature. Every Verizon phone number has an associated email address format that allows you to send an email which gets converted to a text message.
Here’s how you can send an email to a Verizon cell phone number:
1. Compose the Email:
- Using your preferred email service or application, create a new email.
- In the “To” field, enter the 10-digit Verizon cell phone number followed by
@vtext.com.For example, if the Verizon cell phone number is

- Type your message in the body of the email. Keep the message concise, as standard text messaging length limits will apply. If your email is too long, the recipient may receive it as multiple texts or it might get truncated.
2. Send the Email:
- Once you’ve written your message, simply send the email.
3. Message Received as Text:
- The Verizon user should receive the email content as a standard SMS text message on their cell phone.
Remember, while sending emails to a phone number as text messages is generally free for the sender, the recipient might be charged based on their text messaging plan and rates. Before using this method frequently, ensure that the recipient is okay with receiving email-to-text messages to avoid potential costs.
