Most cell Phone providers have an address that you can add onto the end of a phone number to email them as a text.
I.e. firstname.lastname@example.org would be the Verizon email for the phone number (123)555-4567.
AT&T is @txt.att.net, T-Mobile is @tmomail.net
Verizon is @vtext.com, and Sprint is @messaging.sprintpcs.com.

Most people don’t live in the US. We could undergo the effort of trying to compile a list carrier-by-carrier, country-by-country, but other people have already done that heavy lifting. If you live outside of the US, check out these links to see what your carrier’s SMS gateway might be.
AdvicePerson: Kinda sorta. You have to go figure out the address format for each carrier, and it’s gently opt-in per user outside the US.
Here’s a good resource for the addresses:
CatfishToes: I used to do this in reverse; I’d text to my email photos from my phone to save pictures I wanted to keep. This was before micro usb became common and phones had unique chargers and sh*t.

huntcookgrrl: I look at the leopard’s little fluffy paws and think — how cute! Then it slinks forward with grace and intensity, stalking its prey as if to say–looks can be deceiving. 😧
