Motorola WX345 Contacts
While there is not direct email client on the WX345 you can send messages to email addresses by sending a text message to an email contact. To create an email contact, you have to first make sure that your contacts are stored in the phone memory and not on the SIM card. To do that, go to
Menu -> Contacts -> Options and scroll all the way down to Phonebook Setting. There, you can switch the Storage Location from SIM card to Phone Memory. Once you do that, you'll be able to store extended info for each contact including email addresses.
Now you can go back and add a contact name and email address for that contact. Use the "1" key to add the "@" symbol.
Now you can finally send a text message to that contact. To test it, I recommend creating an email contact for your own email address to see what it looks like coming in. As you can see in the screenshot, the message comes from firstname.lastname@example.org which confirms that Consumer Cellular uses the AT&T network.
To email a message back to your phone someone simply has to send the email message back to email@example.com (by hitting reply) and you should receive it. Someone could also send a message to the mms.att.net address, but that will be cost more minutes and be more of a hassle to receive.
