Top 15 Sites To Send Free SMS

Top 15 Sites To Send Free SMS (Text Message) Short messaging service, popularly known as SMS
is the quickest way to deliver your message.
Despite of its usefulness, the mobile service
providers are less interested in decreasing the
cost of sending an SMS, instead they are reducing
cost of voice calls (which is essential too!). Keeping the high costs of sms’s in mind as well as the requirements of people with no access
to their mobile phone (in offices, etc), i have compiled a list of sites with which you can send
free sms to almost all the countries around the
world. Before you read on about free sms sites,
please keep in mind that the sites allowing you to
send free sms are based on advertising model i.e they may or may not attach an AD with your
message. And DONT use these services in case of
emergencies. So, here goes the list: 1. Yakedi First of all Yakedi is available only for the
residents of australia. So, if you are not an
Australian then skip this one and read about the
next site. Yakedi is the best site to send SMS to
Australian and New Zealand users. It provides fast
delivery of messages and has a user friendly interface. 2. Gizmosms Gizmo is known for its voip calling. Not many
know that it also provides free sms’ing. What i
liked about GizmoSMS is that you can send free
sms to any number worldwide without even
signing up for the service (Though you’ll get only
80 characters). 3. Sendsmsnow It is also an ad based free service which requires
users to sign up at the website before sending
free SMS to (individual) mobile numbers
worldwide. Other than providing free sms’es, it
also provides the feature of organizing
phonebooks, groups and replies. 4. Wadja Wadja is yet another online free SMS service
provider which lets its users to send 80 character
SMS to almost anywhere in world (200 countries).
What i like most about wadja is its delivery speed
when sending international messages and its
mobile portal, which really comes in handy. 5. Google sms channel Google sms channel is more of a sharing service
than a sms service. You need to create a sms
channel and all those who are subscribed to that
channel will receive the sms i.e you can send
them free sms (and not to anyone else). It is a
great way to share jokes, etc with friends. 6. Way2SMS Way2sms is probably the only service that allows
its user to send a sms of upto 140 Characters for
free to any mobile number in India. Moreover, you can check status of your sent messages and
save mobile numbers in it’s inbuilt address book.
All these facilities are covered by displaying lots
(and i mean LOTS) of advertisement on their web
portal which makes it tacky. But nevertheless, its a
free sms service. 7. 160by2 This is one of my favourite site for sending free
sms to any mobile in india. Similar to other free
sms providers, it also runs on ads attached to
sms. But the best part is ads are most of time
relevant (and sometimes useful too!). Other than
that, the site also provides an inbuilt address book, ready made sms for different occasions
and a java application for mobile phone’s. 8. Using SMS7 you can send free SMS upto 440
Characters to any GSM/CDMA Mobile Number in
India. You can also scheduled SMS. What catches
the eye is fast delivery of sms along with
accurate delivery reports. 9. Atrochatro It is a free sms sending service which doesn’t
require registration for the same (number of sms
are limited for unregistered users). I have used
this service for a while and didn’t find its delivery
time and sometimes the messages weren’t
delivered at all. 10. IndyaRocks It is a social networking website and free sms is
just one small feature it provides to its registered
members all over the world. One unique service
provided by this website is that of Group SMS
service, you can send a SMS to all your friends at
the same time with just a click. 11. Text4Free It is a free SMS & MMS Sending service, featuring
tools to add free sms sending to myspace, SMS
sending to over 100 countries all over the world. Others Besides the one’s mentioned above, there are a
number of sites that provide free sms. However,
the ones mentioned here are tried and tested
sites. I am also listing down some of the other
sites that i have heard of (good reviews) but
haven’t tested them: 12. 13. 14. 15. Recommended Sites: Though i am not a sms addict and rarely use sms
for interaction. However, from my experience of
using the free sms sites, i recommend the
following: Wadja (for international users) 160by2 (for users in India) Way2sms (for Indian users) I hope you find at least one site which suits your
needs. If you know of any other site worth
mentioning, then do let us know via comments
section. UPDATE: One of the reader, Vinita, has suggested a free site Bollywoodmotion for sending free
sms’s. Though, i haven’t yet tested this site but
prima facie, it looks to be a a good site allowing
users to send sms with 500 characters!
