Is it not possible to send text to an email address? I was trying to sign up for the website, www.groovr.com & they require you to text a verification code to their e-mail address.

text to an email address

Why don't you just send an email? Texting and emailing are pretty much the same thing arent' they?

Not directly. But if I get an SMS from someone who sent it via email (to the SMS gateway of 1234567890@txt.att.net) when I reply to the SMS it gets to them via email.

But I don't think you can initiate an SMS using an email address I cannot even type one in (no access to "." and "@").

Create temporary email account that you set up exactly like an existing working email account, but instead of your usual reply-to address, use the one from groovr.com.

Then send yourself an email from the account, to your iPhone using 1234567890@txt.att.net (with your phone number, obiously).

If you send a text message reply back it will go to groovr.com.

Then delete that email account!
