I don't think prepaid or postpaid make a difference in the ability to receive texts by email. If it doesn't work, there's always Koodo's option to send a message to a phone :

Thanks Chad and Robert for your reponses.

Chad - prior to posting I had tried the but it did not work. I tried using like you recommended and it worked. Makes sense i guess, as koodo is a Telus brand - bizzare that doesn't work though.

I have a similar problem. When I send an email to it shows up on my phone as a text from the sending email with the subject but I can't see the content and it says "Downloading", indefinitely.

Alternatively when I send an email to I receive the text no problem.

However, I cannot send any texts from my phone to an email address, either by responding to either of the two texts listed above (one to that is permanently downloading and one to that I can read) or by typing in the address. It just says "Sending", indefinitely.

It really seems to depend on the customer.

I've been using for years now, no problem. And before that it worked through But some customers can only get it through
