Re: how can i text on my laptop with my boost number

Hello, there is currently no way to send a text message other than from your device. I have forwarded this on to the web team however for future consideration.

 

However, as the other response indicated, you can send an email in the format mentioned and it will show up on the receiving device as a text.

 

Thanks!

If you to to Phone Features & Troubleshooting and then go to messaging

How do I send a text message from my computer?-

To send a text only message to another Boost Mobile customer using email, place your friend's 10-digit Boost Mobile phone number followed by @sms.myboostmobile.com in the "To" or address field. It should look like this 1234567890@sms.myboostmobile.com. Your message will be limited to 160 characters.

To send an MMS message or long text message to another Boost Mobile customer using email, place your friend's 10 digit Boost Mobile phone number followed by @myboostmobile.com in the "To" or address field. It should look like this: 1234567890@myboostmobile.com.

To send text messages from your email to friends who have service with other carriers, you would typically enter the email address as the 10 digit phone number of the person you want to send a message to, followed by the carrier's address. You will have to ask your friend for the address used by their carrier.

If they reply, their message will go straight to your email inbox.

Re: Data packs. Why when I try to use an account balance to get more data it will not accept my pres

If you already have a data pack on the account, you cannot add another one without removing the first one. You will need to call Care to have that first one removed.

 

Thanks!
