Relay ME, SMS via Email


Relay ME is a free Android app that forwards your incoming texts to an email address you provide. It is ad-free and easy to set up. All you need is an email address (anywhere) and a GMail account (why? continue reading).

Please note that it doesn't backup/copy your texts, it works on new messages as they arrive and doesn't deal with the old texts. It does require an Internet connection for forwarding texts and it uses your phone's messaging capabilities for replies. And yes, it needs your phone to be ON!

If you upgrade, you can also respond back to your texts from within your email inbox. Don't worry if you don't, all the free features will continue to work.

*** Why a GMail account? ****

DO NOT INSTALL Its a good app but It has several security risk. Before installing please be aware that. They can 1. Read all your gmail. 2. Send anybody using your email. 3. Do whatever with your gmail like you do. Dont encourage these kind of apps in the market.

What next? New edit below I downloaded and gave gmail address but can't do anything else. Just says upgrade. Is this not free to forward texts. If so please make it clear what I do next just says upgrade. Nothing shows up under messages. New edit: just received single text messages in seperste emails. I just want threads every so often to keep track of client conversations not every single seperate text when they send one.

So far so good I've not had any problems. I have two phones & use this app to forward texts to the phone I'm carrying. I work in emergency services. This app allows me to alleviate carrying two phones all the time. Galaxy S4
