You can send an email or text message to a Sprint cell phone.

Sometimes you need to send a text message but don't have your cell phone handy. If the person you're messaging uses Sprint, you don't need to wait until you can send a message from your phone. As long as you have the person's phone number, you can send a 160-character message from your email account. Longer messages can be sent directly to their Sprint email address.
