You can see if your cell phone company supplies an email to sms bridge (all of the US cell phone companies do). I simply send an email to 8005551212@txt.att.net which will send the first 140 characters of the email as a text to my AT&T phone.

You can generate emails without involvement from the Vera servers if your email provider allows SMTP access to their email server. The code to do so is published in this forum.
