Echo db rows problem

  echo "<td><a href=\\"mailto:" . $row['phone'] . @ . $row['carrier'] . "\\">" . $row['phone'] . "</a></td>";

the phone part is a number say 8595551234 and the carrier is something like vtext.com

i want to combine them so it is
8595551234@vtext.com

and i get a Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘.’

Thanks

thanks that worked!

echo "<td><a href=\\"mailto:" . $row['phone'] . @ . $row['carrier'] . "\\">" . $row['phone'] . "</a></td>";

try

echo "<td><a href=\\"mailto:" . $row['phone'] . "@" . $row['carrier'] . "\\">" . $row['phone'] . "</a></td>";

I added quotes around the @ sign.
