How to Email Boost Cell Phones

By Christa Titus

Emailing a Boost Mobile cell phone follows the same steps as messaging someone's computer-based email account. Some people prefer to send messages this way because a computer keyboard is easier to type on than a cell phone keypad. It doesn't cost you to email a Boost Mobile phone. But the contact you're emailing might incur a 10-cent fee for each email you send, if he doesn't have a text-messaging plan on his phone.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer with Internet service
  • Cell phone number of the person you want to email

Sending the Email

Step 1

Open a blank email message on your computer.

Step 2

Enter your friend's Boost Mobile cell phone number (minus any hyphens) with the suffix of "@myboostmobile.com" in the "To" line of the email. For example, if your contact's number is (856) 555-1212, the email address will be 8565551212@myboostmobile.com.

Step 3

Fill out the "Subject" line of the email.

Step 4

Write your message. Remember that you are limited to 500 characters when you send an email or a text message to a Boost Mobile phone.

Step 5

Click the send button.

Tips & Warnings

  • The person who has the Boost Mobile phone can reply to your email by sending a text to your email address. To do so, they would hit "Reply," write their response and then click "Send."
  • You can email photos to a Boost phone. However, if the attachment is very large, the recipient might not be able to open it. She also might be charged a fee for receiving the photo.
