When a crust is formed fully (about 6 minutes), flip it over. Allow the skin to get crisp for a couple of minutes and it is good to go.

There are times when typing on your laptop is easier and quicker than using your smartphone.

 If you wish to send messages to many people, then using a laptop will make things quicker. But, how to send text messages through your computer?

Read on and find some useful solutions.

Send Text Message Using Your Email Client

No need to download or choose a third-party service. You can use your email to send a text message in form of an SMS. All you need is the receiver’s phone number and the name of their service provider. This way the gateway address can be easily found to forward your text. All you need to do is compose an email just as you normally would and instead of an email address, type the receiver’s 10-digit mobile phone number followed by the appropriate @gateway address. Hit the send button.

List of Text Message Gateways

Carrier                                             Country Gateway
AirCel                                               India                          
Airtel                                                 India
Airtel                                                 India
Chennai Skycell / Airtel                   India
Chennai RPG Cellular                      India
Goa Airtel                                         India
Goa Idea Cellular                             India
Gujarat Idea Cellular                        India
Gujarat Airtel                                    India

You will need to look for other methods to send text messages through your computer.
