It is possible, but not with the method you have in mind.
You cannot send a PDF file through a standard text message directly as the SMS/MMS text messaging technology only supports sending text messages, images, and videos. However, you can use alternative messaging platforms or file-sharing services to send PDF files to your contacts.
Some examples include email, cloud storage services, and file-sharing platforms such as Dropbox or Google Drive. These platforms allow you to upload and share files with others, including PDFs, and can be accessed from both mobile devices and computers.
MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) messaging is a standard way to send text messages that include images over a cellular network. Unfortunately, the MMS technology is limited to sending jpeg, png and gif images and is not able to natively send PDF documents.
If you want to send a PDF file via SMS, one way to do it is by saving the PDF file to cloud storage and sharing the link to the file via SMS. Here are the steps:
Once the recipient receives the SMS message, they can click on the link to open and view the PDF file in their web browser or in the cloud storage app. Note that this method may not be ideal for sensitive or confidential documents, as the link to the file can be forwarded or shared with others.
Delivery is notguaranteed since downstream carriers and recipients' mobile devices may have limitations on what types of files they accept.
The Texty Pro business text messaging service delivers picture, video, or audio messages of up to 1MB but please keep in mind that all mobile service providers restrict the size of MMS.
Due to the differences in devices, file types, and transcoding, we recommend that you send files that are no larger than 500KB to ensure delivery.
