Re: send text to email address
You need to enable GPRS or edge service(also called MMS service ) on this phone,before you can send messages to email. The best option would be to get in touch with your cell phone provider and they would give you the settings for the same. Some phones pick these settings automatically, others have to be configured manually.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. goodluck!

Are you sending the text message to your email address correctly? you also have to make sure that your phone is capable of sending MMS messages and not just standard text messages since often the translation from a phone text message and a standard email is not always possible depending on your carrier and the yahoo mail server.
What you need to do is contact your local service provider (e.g mine was
Mobilicity) and then tell them that you're having trouble receiving a confirmation code from Facebook. They should be able to fix the problem, because I received my confirmation code right after.
(By the way, you can only use your cell phone number once, because
you're only supposed to have one account, according to Facebook)
You could also use the calling option, and have Facebook call you to send you the verification code.
DON'T use your home phone number for these options, because if you need
to verify your account again, they will automatically text you with the
number you gave them and tell you to type in the confirmation code

what exactly do you mean by sending a text message on your email address? and where are you now? if your going to send a message to australia overseas, you need to replace 0 to +61
and if your going to send your email address, it actually depends on how you have created it, does your email has .nz or .au after the email address? if not then there's no need to add nz
You should be able to send a text message with the picture attached to an email address.
to send a multimedia message/text message w. picture attached: -find the actual picture you want to send on your phone and select it -then hit your "menu" or "options" button, which should give you an option to send/share the picture -select text message or multimedia message (MMS) -in the "to" line for the text message, enter the email address you'd like to send it to -hit "send"
when you add address it should ask you where from. say contact list (for this you must have email addresses of contacts in the phone book, then only will it work). Select as many as you want. If you do not have emai adds in the phone book then I am afraid you will have to write them seperated by comma. then send.
To send a message to an email address you need to set an email gateway number: Messaging > settings > text messages( check whether there is video options if not just use text messages and confirm with your provider if this service is supported.The provider might be using same gateway or different for video and text messages) > Email gateway
NB The (email gateway)Number is supplied by your service provider
