Hello @jessicalevine

At this time there is not an option to send a text from your Cricket phone number through your computer. However, if you're trying to message a Cricket customer via e-mail sms/mms you can use this format: 10-digit-number@mms.cricketwireless.net

Thanks!

I tried this format in the past and it didnt go through. This format did work when Cricket was AIO. also verizon uses one format for text and a different on for pictures, what can you use the mms format for?

web interfaces seem to be what separate the primary service carriers (like AT&T), and their 2nd class pay go cussons (like Cricket), but Cricket is a LOT cheaper.

If you have an Android phone, you can link your computer and your PC via https://messages.google.com/web Although, you phone and your computer have to be near each other. 

Sending text messages via email is always hit or miss (even if you know which service your recipient is using.
