How to send an anonymous text

We were discussing anonymous texts this morning. So if you want to mess with a friend here's how you do it.

Most major cell phone carriers allow texts to be sent to their customers via email. (Pro tip: If you want to do completely anonymous texting, use a temporary email address.) You’ll need to know the recipient’s carrier for this to work. Then, send your message to the intended phone number using one of the following templates:


SMS (a text-only message)

MMS (a message that includes multimedia like pictures, audio, or video)

Metro PCS





Verizon Wireless
