Texting to Smartphone

  • Updated 3 years ago
When setting up the alarm reporting, for sending text to my Mobile phone, my cell phone provider (US Cellular) is not listed in the pull down menu.  I tried a couple other providers in this area, but I do not received a text message.  Anyone know how I can remedy this problem?

Many providers have an alternate via emal to something like phonenumbet@donain.com . usually found somewhere on their website. Or ask the googles.

Thanks for the reply Rick, but what i want the unit to do is text my smartphone via my smartphone's telephone number.  I have it set up to email me, but I would rather have it to text me. (It has the option to email and/or text).  I guess my message wasn't clear.

Perhaps i wasn't clear. The process will result in a text. You just email the message and the message content is received as a text on your phone

Hi Clyde,

Unfortunately, US Cellular is not a carrier we have an agreement with to allow sending of SMS/text messaging.  Rick's suggestion would be the only alternative we have available at this time. 

Have a great day!
