    Sending texts from computer to phone

    I found the text address for Straight Talk and sent myself a text from my computer, it went through great. Sent one to my brother, it went through great. Sent one to my sister and it came back undeliverable (Mailer-Demon). We are all on Straight Talk. Brother and I have the same model phone, sister has a different one.

    It doesn't matter what model the phone is, does it?

    It doesn't matter so much what phone model you have, but it does matter what carrier the phone in question uses. ST phones run off all the major carriers. What is the model of the phone where the message came back undeliverable?

    The underlying carrier matters. I think you and your sister are on different carriers and you are using your carrier's servers to try to get through to your sister, thus the delivery error.

    Go to https://wirelessamberalerts.org and enter your phone number. It will reply back with your carrier You don't have to sign up for anything.

    Then enter your sister's cell phone number and it will reply with her carrier.

    It is most likely different from yours. Reply back here with her carrier and we can tell what the servers are to send an email to her.

    Here is the list of the gateways for many wireless carriers:

    Note that carriers may have separate addresses for MMS and SMS.

    You will find that you can send a longer text message to the MMS address. Note that the iPhone uses MMS for all messages to email addresses, so you might as well send all messages to iPhones via the MMS gateway. The original iPhone did not have MMS capability so the messages from computers would be one way.
