      Haven't tried it, but it looks like perhaps you could create an IFTTT.com script as a workaround. Have gmail send the text to a specified location like a dropbox folder then have IFTTT monitor that location and forward the contents of the email on as an SMS to your phone.

      Hello!
      I actually tried the one for Tracfone and substituted the temp entry
      there for my cell number, and some errors surfaced. It seems Google
      Mail had an error with them, they kept complaining that my phone
      number was an unknown user for such functions.
