***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team
Why doesn't ##########@vtext.com work anymore?

I used to be able to send text from my email to my phone by entering the phonenumber@vtext.com.

But not anymore.  According to Verizon's vtext.com page, you should be able to do this:

Text to mobile phone from E-mail, send and receive text messages from any email address in the world by addressing the email to your 10 digit mobile number, number@vtext.com, or your customnickname@vtext.com.

I haven't had any issues doing this; are you getting an error message, they just don't go through, what?

You haven't added a block to your line regarding texting from the web, have you?  That's the only thing I can think of.  I just tried it since it had been awhile since I'd sent one, and I had no trouble sending a text to myself from my e-mail.

I'm not sure how you would block it. If I knew how, I'd check. Thanks.

If you don't know how to check about the block, then I doubt that you've set it up.    Here's how, if you need it:

log into your on-line MyVerizon account

click on the blue More Actions (under I Want To)

click on the blue Block Internet Spam (under Safety & Security)

at the top of the page, choose line/phone, if applicable

at the bottom of the page, ensure that both check boxes are unchecked under Message Blocking Preferences

They are not checked. Guess I'll go to the store later.

Good luck.  The only other thing I can think of is if you're sending photo texts; if so, then you need to use vzwpix.com rather than vtext.com

It works if I send a picture to vzwpix.com, but not vtext.com.

I may be misunderstanding you ... you send a picture message to vzwpix.com and it goes through?  Wahoo, it's working as it should!

If you send a picture message to vtext.com, it doesn't go through?  Well, it's not supposed to ... you can't send picture messages to vtext.com

Or are you saying that you still cannot send a text message (with no attachments) to vtext.com?
