How Does SMS Work?

There’s a lot of technical jargon behind how email to SMS works, but to understand how it works and why it’s so convenient you only need a run-down of the essential information. After registering, the service you are provided with allows you to send your email – addressed to your recipient’s mobile number followed immediately by @smsmail.com – which triggers a SMS to be sent to the inputted mobile number. So, for example, you would address the email in this manner: 00000000000@smsmail.com. Another handy feature of the service is that it works both ways; you are entitled to the ability to have emails forwarded to you as an SMS.

The Best of Both Worlds

The principal reason why email to SMS is so helpful is that it takes the best features of email and SMS and merges them, providing you with the best form of remote communication there is out there.

Firstly, the superior ease of writing an email is incorporated in email to SMS. If you’re tired of fiddling with tiny phone keyboards and predictive text, you’ll find it a delight and a relief to be able to text at lightning speed using a computer keyboard. Even phones with QWERTY keyboards don’t permit you to send SMSs with such simplicity and speed.

In addition, the general accessibility of mobile phones contributes to the advantages of email to SMS. People check their email, perhaps daily, but it’s a fact that most people have their phone nearby nearly all the time. This means that you can have you email-written messages responded to with a promptness that simply wouldn’t have been possible before.

No Hassle, No Fuss

The only way this service could be easier to use would be if it could read your mind instead of you having to write the messages. What makes email to SMS by far superior to other computer to phone messaging services is the fact that it requires no downloads. Once you’ve registered, you’re good to go; all you need is to enter a number and a message.

No download being required means that even if your computer isn’t close at hand, it doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of email to SMS; any device capable of sending emails can send email to SMS messages. That’s right; your smartphones, tablet computers and other internet-connected handheld devices are all eligible.

Features That Make Email to SMS Perfect for Businesses

Nowadays, in the hectic world of work, it is important to be informed and in contact with colleagues in order to operate effectively. Several features of email to SMS allow you do this more efficiently than ever before:

  • The limitless number of possible recipients for your message allows you to send out your important notices to as many people as required.
  • The service also allows your phone to act like a smartphone even if it isn’t one; you’ll never miss and important email as you can have your emails delivered to your phone as SMSs.
  • You are notified if and the exact time your message was delivered, so you can always know and rest assured that what you’ve sent will reach whoever you’ve sent it to.
  • Finally, perhaps the most enticing attribute of email to SMS: sending SMSs with this service only costs a fraction of what it would to send them on a standard network.
