Save time by using your phone number for your email address

30 May

If you give this a try, you’ll find that some email apps, like Gmail, won’t allow you to include your entire phone number (area code and all) without adding a letter to the mix, but with Gmail, as long as you have fewer than 8 numbers, you’re okay. While you wouldn’t want to use this address for everything, it seems like a potentially perfect solution for situations like Dan described – you can hand out two pieces of contact info for the price of one.

“Having heard my wife give out her email address to yet another soccer coach at the start of the season, it hit me. What if you used your phone number as a handout email address?

Instead of spelling some haphazard email address, she could tell them: “”It is our phone number — 5551234@gmail.com” and be done with it.”
