How To Get Your Email Via SMS

Tip A Day #17

Why force yourself to continuously check your email, when you can have important emails sent right to you via text message!

Requirements:
An unlimited SMS plan (or be willing to pay per message)

Step 1
Every phone is assigned an email address through your carrier. If you’re on AT&T, it’s yourphonenumber@txt.att.net. On Verizon it’s yourphonenumber@vtext.com.

Check with your carrier for the correct email address.

Step 2
Create a filter in your email account. In Gmail, choose Settings / Mail Settings / Filters

Step 3
Choose how you want to filter: by email address or subject line are two really good options.

Step 4
Verify your phone number – you’ll get a code via text. This is to avoid spam.

That’s it!
