How to Send Free Cards to Mobile Phones

A card is a simple way to express congratulations, thanks, sympathy or to celebrate a special event or holiday. It can be difficult to remember to mail cards ahead of time, so sending an electronic card, or e-card, to someone's mobile phone is an attractive option. With phones that have e-mail access, you can e-mail the card to the recipient and they will receive it on their phone. If the recipient has a traditional phone, you can text an e-card to them.
