Unable to text/SMS with @myvzw.com e-mail address?

Ant

Hello.

According to http://www.emailtextmessages.com/ ... I can text to 1234567890@myvzw.com to the mobile phone owner at (123) 456-7890. I tried this with a LG Comsos2 Verizon Wireless phone number, but it is not getting anything. I have no problems with +1234567890 through AIM though.

Any ideas? Thank you in advance. Smiley Happy

Actually, I used a 9-digit fake number rather than 10.     But the main point is that SMS' use vtext.com and MMS' use vzwpix.com extensions.

That's the wrong email address for sending a text message via email. It is 1234567890@vtext.com or 123456789@vzpix.com (I think I have the MMS address right).

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

The vtext address is for SMS, and the vzwpix address is for MMS.

Thanks for fixing it for me.

I think I used the 9 digit number first. It was a format example anyway.

Exactly, and sometimes my fingers aren't as fast as my brain.
