    Sure enough, opened handcent, sent a text to my gmail, received it as an email, replied to the email and received it as a text

    So what is the question then, to be able to easily select the email address within Handcent ?

    I thought I would be smart and add a contact with only a name and email address, go into handcent select the new message icon and tap the plus sign...this option only brings up contacts with phone numbers associated with their names

    It still doesn't make sense to me. An app that sends a text to an email I can accept but I don't see how you can send an email to a text.

    I'm not saying it can't be done, obviously it can. It just doesn't make sense.

    give it a shot, in gmail send an email to yourmobilenumber(with area code)@vzwpix.com and it should show up as a text on your device

    This is how VZW sends texts to you when you check minutes via #min

    I didn' realize it was possible the other way around...finally this process comes full circle

    EVERY cellphone carrier assigns your phone an email address. My buddy has AT&T and his is his 10 digit number @ cingularme.com.

    Also, if you use your Verizon account online, your sign in name@vtext.com works too.
    When I worked part time for campus security, that was how they got a campus emergency notification service after Virginia Tech. They required the cellphone and carrier info from all students and faculty, then they made a "list" within the email contacts to mass email everyone. Now you can only receive so many characters as a text from an email account. Like 120 or something
