Samsung cell phone: How to text my older model cell phone:
You can only do this if your older cell phone has an active SIM card in it.. meaning it has to have a cell phone number that has service.
If yes, in your text message application, where "Enter Recipients" is: enter the old cell phone number including area code where you will send to.. and the message, then hit send.. It should go through..
If both phones are Android, you can do this:
If you do not have cellular access to the old cell phone.. you can still send a text message to that older phone but not via the phone's on-board text message application.. Use a messaging app to do so. Download on both phones the same app.. like: "Text Free" you will get a free number you can use to text to that older phone for free. Make sure the older phone is connected to WiFi so that the newer phone can text it.
