To address a message to an Internet E-mail Address
Addressing a message to someone's e-mail is no different than the address you would use from your desktop computer. Simply enter the person's address into your 2-way device as an e-mail address.

To address a message to any Word, Advanced Word or 2-way Device:

Enter the address in your USA Mobility 2-way Device as an e-mail address.

In the paging industry, some devices have a PIN that is a distinct number different from the telephone number, and yet is part of the e-mail address. In these cases, you will need to ask the other person for his or her PIN before you can establish the e-mail address for their device.

Use the chart below to format the device if you do not know the e-mail address.

For many carriers, the address is not easily known.
