TO SEND TEXT TO AN EMAIL ADDRESS
Enter 36245 (that’s the code for EMAIL) in the TO field. In the text field, enter the actual email address followed by a space and then the actual message. Send yourself an email to see what your TracFone's email address is.
PEOPLE CAN EMAIL YOU
If your TracFone uses ATT, your email is firstname.lastname@example.org To confirm you phone's email address, send yourself and email with it using the above tip.
TO CREATE A TEMPLATE FOR A FAVORITE EMAIL ADDRESS
Since you can't store email addresses for contacts, use templates...
Messages > Create Message > Message > skip the To: line > Text: enter the email address followed by a space > Options > Save message > As template > Options > Exit > Save to Drafts? > No > END
TO SEND TEXT TO AN EMAIL ADDRESS TEMPLATE
Once you've created the template (see above) it's easy to use...
Messages > Create Message > Templates > Text templates > scroll down to the email address you want > Use > To: 36245 > down to Text field > after the email address, enter the message > Send > END
CAN YOU EMAIL PHOTOS AND OTHER THINGS?
I think so, but it's awfully slow and you get charged for the airtime it takes (plus 1.5 minutes, I think.) Also, you will be charged whether the transfer is successful or not. I gave up on it, but it looked like it was transferring.
Thanks Libertarian Gal! I had described this general procedure for Tracfone email using an older Motorola C261, but it's probably useful to also have this info specifically for the LG phone here.
