How to Read Text Messages From My Cricket Phone on the Computer

If you want to read text messages that you received on your Cricket cellular telephone on your computer, you're going to need to forward the messages to your email address. This will be accomplished through roughly the same way you would forward a message to another cell phone user, but instead of inputting a phone number as the forward address, you'll input your email address.
