There are several ways to send anonymous text messages, including sending messages via email, using an instant messenger service such as AIM or Yahoo Messenger, or using smartphone apps. To send an anonymous text using an email, one can simply open a new email account and then send the message to the phone number. Different cell phone carriers have different email templates; for example, AT&T SMS messages are sent to 10digitphonenumber@txt.att.net, and Verizon SMS messages are sent to 10digitphonenumber@vtext.com.
