I want to forward a Gmail message from my daughter to text so I can send it out by SMS on my phone.

You can use Google Voice/Text service too, if you're in the US that would be free for you.

Go to Google Voice website, verify your phone number and get a Google number, then you can easily forward messages from your Gmail account to any phone.

It's very easy!


What's your carrier? Most have an email-to-SMS bridge. Verizon Wireless, for instance, uses {phonenumber}@vtext.com (e.g., 2128675309@vtext.com).

Here's a list for carriers in the U.S. but I don't know how up-to-date it is.

Further, many carriers have web forms to allow sending arbitrary text to any customer, so you could just copy-paste the message in the form. Verizon Wireless's is at http://www.vtext.com/. Check your carrier's website.

Either way, this isn't a Gmail-specific question; that just happens to be the email service being used.


You can use a free application : http://airdroid.com/
With this application you can access all your messages (and a lot more) from your PC via wifi. So you can copy/past your gmail message.

You can find this application on google play here : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sand.airdroid
