forward all email to text

forward all email to text

I am trying to foward *all* of my emails to a SMS number so that I can receive them as texts.   

However, whenever I key in "205NNNNNNN@txt.att.net" Comcast says it is not a valid email address.  

Is there a way around this?

 

FYI - The reason I am doing this is because starting in late June Google Calendar will no longer send text messages as reminders.  I do not have a smart phone, so I am dependent upon getting text messages from Google Calendar as appointment reminders.

Re: forward all email to text

I can't help you get what you want to do set up. I can remind you that text messages are limited in the number of characters allowed (generally 160 and that includes spaces) and if you receive an email with more than 160 characters it likely will be broken up into several different messages.

 

The only thing I can suggest is searching online for a free calender that you can use which will text you the reminders.

Thank you for your effort.

Why can't you just download and install the Google Calendar app for your phone?  It comes in two flavors, Android and iPhone.
