An email account is not only your virtual mailbox; you can use it to access online tools and services.
When you apply for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), you must provide your email address. If you don’t have one, you can choose one of two options to get started.
A cell phone number may be used to receive emails via text message. If you do not have an email address, some phone providers allow your phone number to be used as an email address, called a mobile email address. The mobile email address usually includes your phone number and the name of the mobile carrier.
When asked for your email address, simply type your phone number followed by your phone provider's gateway address.
For example, email@example.com
If you do not see your provider listed, Google "your provider's name + text to email" to find the relevant gateway address.
