How do I send a text from my computer?

Text messaging acts as a relief, not only because it is cheap, but also because it is an easy and efficient way to get across the intended message when trying to reach someone in an alternative method other than calling. Sending a Short Message Service (SMS) was initially designed for cellphones, but with advances in technology, the same service is possible using a computer with internet connection. In this article, find out how to send a text from your computer.

Send message through websites

Using text services in most of the internet sites will usually be free of charge. However, some websites may charge minimal fees. The process simply involves typing the message and pressing the send option. Some websites may even allow the user to customise the message by providing options such as sending videos or pictures. Downside of sending message through websites Even though most of these websites will offer text mobile at no costs, the user may be prompted to register some personal details such as email address, texting phone number or both. Although some websites can be trusted, users have to be cautious in offering their personal information. However, you need not worry because there is an alternative method to use text messages from your computer.

Sending text messages through email

You can text anywhere using you email address and the advantage with this system is that you will not need to register your personal details with third party websites. Therefore, you need not worry about them bombarding you with an embarrassment of telemarketing mails. Sending a text message via email involves accessing you network providers in the region and the SMS provider the intended recipient uses. You will then draft your text in the form of mail and then input the number and the carrier email address.

Send from the phone carrier’s website

This process involves visiting your network carrier’s website and finding out if they offer an SMS gateway where you can send a text. Although it may require registration, it is also a convenient method to send texts.

Final word

Sending a text message through the computer is an easy and usually free process. Nonetheless, some of the providers may only allow you to send a limited amount of texts in a predetermined period. When sending a message online, you need to make it as precise as possible due to the character limit.
