Sending FREE International SMS

by admin on July 26, 2007

I am always on the lookout for some free SMS Services. Most services ask for money after a fixed number of messages:
read this fabulous article. Since most services still offer USA/Canada only options, I added some of my own findings: 

1) txtdrop for free International text messaging. They seem to offer unlimited free messages. Though one has to keep their webpage open. Wish they had a widget for International Messaging. (Use txtdrop.com for free messaging in the USA and Canada). Wish they had a mobile version (like maybe http://m.txtdrop.net)

2) Yahoo! Messenger : Lets you send upto 5 free messages to one number and then waits for that person to reply. Quite convenient though.

3) GizmoSMS : Excellent interface seems to let you send unlimited international messages for free. Wish they had an Apple Widget!

4) GSM SMS mentions it allows sending upto 6 sms per IP address per day. Sounds good enough!

5) Firefox Sendtophone: Google Send to Phone for Firefox is an extension that enables you to send short text messages of web page content to your mobile phone. For example, you might text message yourself a phone number, an address, or directions that you find on the Web.

6) Crickee: You have to register. It claims free sms for life.

7) MobiK you have to register, but you also get a mobile phone based app that lets you send messages for free. Has been working fine for me.

8- ROMSMS claims free sms worldwide. but I couldnt understand the language and soon gave up.

9) SeaSMS: Claims to send free sms to any part of the planet!

10) Text One Free: Is not exactly international, but does offer many more countries than just USA or Canada. Does not support India.

11) Text4Free Lets you send free text messages to most places. Very very cluttered interface

12) Action Telecom: Quite a few networks covered but still doesnt seem enough


some other services
4info: lets you receive text messages without giving away your phone number.  They let you custom code your widget which you can place on your MySpace or other social networking site or your Blog etc. 

Freebies SMS UK : Lets you send free sms to UK numbers

Action telecom has over 100 networks, how is that not enough?

In the sense that I wanted to send an SMS to Airtel Mumbai, or to Reliance Kolkata or to Hutch Mumbai, none worked. So for MY use, the 100 networks didnt seem like enough. But its credible nonetheless.
