Full Answer

To send an anonymous text using the email method, you must know the recipient's carrier. For AT&T users, enter the recipient's 10-digit number followed by "@txt.att.net." For Verizon Wireless, enter the number followed by "@vtext.com." For Sprint, use the number followed by "@messaging.sprintpcs.com." For T-Mobile, input the phone number followed by "@tmomail.net."

If you have a smartphone, download the Anonymous Texting or Anonytext apps for Android. For iOS users, install the Pinger or TextPlus apps, which change your number to something else for anonymity.
