What do the Text@ and Carrier247 services do?


If you input a phone number to one of these services, it will return:

  • the carrier's name
  • whether or not the phone is wireless

If the phone is wireless, it will also return:

  • the SMS Gateway Address
  • the MMS Gateway Address

The SMS and MMS Gateway addresses can be used to send text messages and picture messages to wireless phones. The Gateway Addresses are email addresses of the carrier. To send a text to the recipient, you send an email message to the carrier using the Gateway email address,and the carrier sends your message to the recipient as an SMS or MMS message.
