How to Email a Picture to Your T-Mobile Cell Phone

Your T-Mobile phone can receive email messages as text messages on the handset. You can use this feature for sending pictures directly from your computer to a cell phone. This is useful if the T-Mobile phone account doesn’t have a data plan or receive email messages on it. Instead, the picture message is delivered as a text message to the cell phone.
