You can email a message to your phone.
First use your phone and send yourself an email from your phone to your computer.
When you open this, you will find out what your email address is for that phone.
Then you can sign up for any alert (even FREE) that you want. The message will come to that phone.
Only glitch is that unless they offer you both services that include sending it to your email address and cell phone, you may have a little unsubscribing from the service.

Can anyone please recommend an online service that allows me to send email-to-SMS text messages internationally?
I have searched the internet and found many sites claiming to provide this service. Some services are free, while others charge. Obviously, I'd rather the service be free, however, there is no way to tell which services are reliable.
Also, is there a chance that some services exist just to collect cell phone numbers and email addresses to spam them later?
