I am sending messages to my friend living in Florida from my desktop here in Richmond. I don’t know whether he will be receiving them or not but I want to ask you that is it necessary to have an internet network in your phone if someone has sent Verizon text message from computer. I am seeking for a genuine advice. Also can anyone please provide me with detailed steps of how to send sms from email using Verizon wireless cell phone number? Thanks in advance.
