Email to Text Message with Visible

AssistingYou
Novice

 

With Visible you are able to receive texts to your phone number from an email using either:

  1. Number @vtext.com
    • To send an SMS to your phone number
  2. Number@vzwpix.com
    • To send an MMS to your phone number


While both of these options work, the second one "@vzwpix.com" is capable more such as images, emojis, etc.


 


This can be extremely useful if you want to receive automatic texts about each email from a certain address. Within your email settings you can setup the option to automatically forward certain emails to this address if you wish to get text updates.

The opposite should work too from your phone! BUT it DOESN'T!! IT did you used to be able until April 2021 to send an SMS to Email but now its broken... Just says undeliverable and tech support says it's an unsupported feature... I don't get visible that sucks!

Unbelievable. I've been so happy with Visible until now, but this is really intolerable. How could they do something so foolish? This is a basic feature that's been present with every phone and phone service since I've had SMS! Well, thanks for saving me have to wait being 140th in line to get someone on chat.

Is this feature no longer working? I ported my number in from Cricket Wireless a few days ago and can't get this feature to work for either vtext or vzwpix.

I tried both of these for email forwarding to SMS - neither worked! 😞 

Same here. Tried both and neither one worked. I was previously with ATT.  Maybe it only is working for previous Verizon customers since their number was already ported to the Verizon network?

I ported from Verizon and neither SMS or MMS will work for me.  Here's the Gmail "Delivery Incomplete" message I received.  Visible needs to support email to SMS!

I tried this today, it worked sending to number at vtext.com when sent from my work email, but failed whne sent from my Gmail account. Maybe the widespread failures below are a Gmail specific issue

still doesn't work with gmail just tried.

The email to text works from most mail domains except googles gmail.

Worked for me last month.

Is my gmail account blacklisted???

How do I fix this?
