In an era where smartphone ownership is becoming the majority, it’s hard to imagine someone who can’t (or won’t) send out text messages. When was the last time you knew someone who didn’t have a text messaging plan on their mobile? Or better yet, when was the last time someone told you “don’t text me because I’ve hit my limit!”?
You probably don’t remember. And yet, there are still millions of people out there who (whether involuntarily or by choice) don’t have access to free text messaging. Maybe you’re one of them. Sometimes people lose or misplace their phones and need to shoot a quick SMS to their friends or family.
In either case, these free services will send free SMS messages to your recipients at no extra cost. Very handy for those rare situations!
SendSMSNow is one of the simplest web services to send free SMS texts. The process is simple – you select a country code, enter the recipient’s number, enter your own phone number, type the message, and off it goes. The text message limit is 130 characters, which is more than most free services will offer!
But the coolest part of SendSMSNow, in my opinion, is that you have an inbox on the site and all replies go straight to that inbox. This way, you don’t even need your phone to continue communication. This inbox also tracks a history of all messages you sent using SendSMSNow.
You can send unlimited free texts with this service. That’s just extra icing on top of an already delicious cake.
Regional Availability: 34 countries, including United States, Canada, Austria, France, Germany, Phillipines, Russia, and more.
