Email to SMS Credo

I needed to set up Emails to go to the SMS account of a customer on Credo Mobile.
Most carriers publish this information, but I could not find it anywhere for Credo. So I called them up. Sorry, they can’t give me that information unless I verify my account. grrrr….
OK, so I had the customer call and here is the answer
##Mobile Number##@messaging.sprintpcs.com

That makes sense since Credo is on Sprint’s network. Tested and it works!

    Do you know if there are charges associated to this? If I’m sending an email from Canada, would the text message the recipient receives be covered by his unlimited texting plan? I called Credo twice and received two different responses. One rep informed me that there was no such thing as email to text within Credo. Credo would either consider it a text message or an email. Either way, the recipient will be charged. Either for an international text message or for data usage. The second response I received was that it would be considered a local text and covered by the texting plan. I’m a little wary and don’t want to be surprised with a huge phone bill next month. Does anyone know?

      Hi May – thanks for visiting our blog!

      First off a disclaimer, i don’t work for Credo and I don’t really know what their policies are.

      However, that being said, I believe that it does not matter where the email originates. The email address that you’re sending to triggers the text message and therefore the text message is generated locally to the end user, and hence the user would be billed for receiving a single text message (or not at all on an “unlimited text” plan). It shouldn’t matter if the email originated on his home computer or the other side of the world.

      Seeing that you are the cautious type, you might try just sending one and wait for the monthly bill to make sure before you start blasting unlimited texts from around the world. But I’m fairly sure you won’t see any extra charges.

    I tried this from my iPad mini to my husband’s Credo cell from messaging. It stated it couldn’t send an “imessage” to this number. I used the hash marks with and without. Oh well, worth a try. It did work from my e-mail program to his cell though.
    Thanks!

    Hello,
    Thanks for this info, still valid in late 2015.
    Texts to my email from my daughter’s credomobile phone show sender=##mobile number##@plspictures.com. Replies to that address do not go through if data is turned off. That’s why I googled and found this blog.
    emails to ##Mobile Number##@messaging.sprintpcs.com are received even if the recipient has data turned off. However, the credomobile phone cannot reply without using data.

    Just a note to say this worked for me in the spring of 2016. Happy to be getting alerts of when the International Space Station will be visible!
