E-mailing from a Cell Phone

    How do I type in an e-mail address on a cell phone (are the letters just the numbers just as when dialing)?

    No, you need to select the proper letters, numbers, hyphens, etc... that someone might have in an e-mail address.

    Let's back up a step or two here. First, do you have a cell phone which can send e-mails (check the manual). If so, check the manual to find out how. If not, then you can't send emails.

    After that, do you have Internet service with your phone from your Internet provider? If not, then you can't send emails.

    Unfortunately, it's not as simple as texting someone at their cell phone number. Although there are services that convert email to SMS and presumably vice-versa.
