Get your text messaging e-mail address

You may not know it, but text messages can be sent to a cell phone or PDA by e-mail. To do this, you first need to figure out the e-mail address for that phone or PDA. This is a necessary step if you want to receive Snow Emergency text message alerts.

The first part of the e-mail address is the phone number, with area code. The second part is based on the company providing the cell phone service.
