    Do you mean an "email message", or an actual SMS "text message".

    To do SMS messaging, you'll need to subscribe to an SMS service, and they are not free.
    If you find a free one, they transmit random ads with each text message.

    Emails can be done for free using the email protocol for your cell phone provider.
    The difference is, the way it appears on the phone, and the replies for email
    go to the sender's email, not back to their phone (like a text message).

    SMS messages can be sent just like emails, but here's the rub.

    You can't send it the same way to everyone. Each system has thier own identifiers that have to be appended to the "to" address. I typically only do this with a known number and identifier.

    The SMS system mentioned above will work, but all they are doing is adding the correct identifier to the number ( they have a lookup service to determine the carrier ), then resend, and usually tack on some kind of ad to supplement their income.

    For personal use, send a text to your email address ( the from address should show you how to send mail to that specific number using email ), try it in reverse, if you get the message back, your carrier allows transmittal between systems ( not all of them do ) and if you're talking about MMS, that's a completely different can of worms.
