Free SMS FAQs

Before you contact us with your 'free text message' query or mobile messaging query (or bulk sms query, or any sms question) please take a look at the frequently asked questions and answers on this page – you never know, we might have answered your question already.

TextMeFree is NOT a free SMS or ringtone provider!

So if you have a problem with sms.ac or any other ringtone/SMS provider, then you must contact those services directly.

At textmefree.com, we list and review free SMS services and mobile messaging apps.

1. Help, I can't send free text messages!

2. How does a particular free sms service work?

There are so many free international sms text messaging services listed at TextMeFree.com that I just don't know how each individual service works.

Each free sms site seems to operate in a different way.

The best thing to do is to get in touch with the particular site and ask them directly.

3. Free SMS service X does not work with friend's phone    (Back to top)

You need to contact the site concerned and ask them. Or you could leave a comment at the site listing concerned on TextMeFree.com. For obvious geographical reasons I am only able to verify free sms services that claim to work in UK (that's because I have a UK Mobile phone!).

One tip: use the correct international dialling code!

4. How do I know if my friend got the message?   

Another good question (I wish I had the answer).

Basically, sometimes a message is sent immediately, sometimes it takes a couple of hours, and sometimes the message is never received.

So this is really a question you should direct at the 'free SMS' provider you are trying to use.

Some services do confirm delivery of sms - look for that in the listing.

Other than that, the only reliable solution, I'm afraid, is to test each service you're interested in (I have sent test messages for all of the sites listed to my UK mobile phone, but obviously cannot test on mobile phones in other countries!)

If you have a bad (or good) experience with a particular site then you should leave comments or rate the site 'accordingly', here at TextMeFree.com .

5. Does it cost money to receive the free sms messages?  

 

6. You don't have a free service to country 'X'   

It is possible that country 'X' does not have any free sms services. (Go to our free sms sites page to start your search.) I know that you can send free sms using services to countries like Australia, Austria, Germany, India, Japan, China, Pakistan, Poland, UK, USA etc. (find a full list of countries here!)

If you still cannot find a particular country, then why not try out a free sms service listed in the Worldwide section. All of these sites claim to be able to allow free text messaging online, worldwide (and that probably means your country is included).

And, remember, you can always do a search.

7. How can I send free sms from my site

Good question. The only solutions I have looked into can be found on my send bulk sms page

(Back to top)     

8. How can I send free text messages from my PC

Simply do a search for the word software at TextMeFree.com . You should find a free SMS site that allows you to send text messages anywhere in the world, direct from your PC.

(Or you could check out my bulk sms marketing page - software solutions will be added here soon!)

9. I have received abusive messages

If you have received abusive text messages, or unsolicited text messages, you need to complain to the owner of the Free SMS Site that you used.

(TextMeFree.com does not send SMS, we are only a directory of Free SMS sites. Hence TextMeFree.com is not responsible for how any of the services listed operate – see site disclaimer.)

Read this how to stop receiving unwanted sms messages.

(Back to top)     

10. How do I unsubscribe from your service?

Basically, TextMeFree.com does not operate any service for you to unsubscribe from.

If you want to unsubscribe from a free SMS service then you must visit the sms site concerned and check the membership terms and conditions.

If you want to unsubscribe from The TextMeFree Times newsletter, on the other hand, then unsubscribe instructions are contained at the bottom of each email sent to you.

(Back to top)     

11. BULK SMS query

Or "What are your best bulk sms rates?"

Well, basically, TextMeFree.com is not a free sms provider and it does not sell sms services either. That means that TextMeFree.com has no need of bulk sms services whatsoever.

I do list several sites that offer bulk sms, at good rates. Visit the page below,
http://www.textmefree.com/send-bulk-sms.html
(And if you would like to list your bulk sms service, then send us your details via the Contact Us page).

So, again, please do NOT ask us if we want to buy sms services from you - we do not! :-) Nor can we provide them.

12. I have a different question that you have not answered

*IF* the answers above do not answer your bulk sms or free sms query, then please use this contact form!. (DO check the answers first - thanks! :-) )

Please note though, I run TextMeFree.com on my own. That means I am only able to provide you with basic site support.

13. How can sending SMS be free?

14. Can I send Free SMS using TextMeFree.com

Ah, this is the easiest question to answer. The answer is no. As I keep saying, TextMeFree.com is just a directory of free sms sites. It is those sites that let you send free sms, not TextMeFree.com (just as it's to those sites you should go if you need to complain about messages not being sent or even abusive messages being received, etc.).

(Back to top)     

15. Will you tell your friends about TextMeFree.com? (Ahem.)

I know this is a cheeky question, but it's a question I frequently ask visitors to TextMeFree.com, nevertheless! :-) So, will you? Will you tell your friends about TextMeFree.com?

Just tell them that TextMeFree.com is a free sms directory and lists over 250 free sms sites that let you send free texts to anywhere in the world (almost).

 

16. Were are your mobile messaging app reviews?

We review the most popular mobile messaging apps for all platforms: iPhone, iPad Touch, Android, Nokia, Windows Mobile... and you can find them here: Mobile messaging apps


That's it on the frequently asked questions to do with free sms, messaging apps and TextMeFree.com. If I've still not answered your question, then please contact me.

Thank you
