You can copy the text and paste in an email and send, or on some phones you can long press the text and forward to an email.
You can send a text message from your email to any Verizon Wireless mobile number.
Compose a message as if you were sending a standard email.
In the To field, enter the 10-digit mobile number of the recipient followed by @vtext.com (e.g., email@example.com).
Send the message.
As far as sending a text directly to an email address, yes. Just create a new text and enter the email address into the recipient field, compose text message, and send. The message will show up in the recipient's inbox as firstname.lastname@example.org
I figured out my issue. What I was trying to do was send an existing text to an email. What I did was click on the text...not on the actual words of the text but the background in the text area. It gave me a drop down menu. One of the options was to forward it. I send it to my email and it worked. Thank you for your assistance.
