New Unlimited International Free SMS
One of the latest free text messaging services to be added to TextMeFree.com is from UnLimitSMS.net. This service has been tested by TextMeFree and works very well, so let's hope it keeps going for some time.
There is a text advert appended to each SMS, but that's fair enough for an unlimited service. Our texts arrived immediately, so we have to recommend this service, which seems to have been created by a football fan as you'll see when you visit the site.

If you're happy with the amount, simply FREEPOST your phone off to MoPay and you will be paid within three days (it's a UK address).
The amount you will get depends on the mobile device you have and whether it's working or not – sometimes even phones that aren't working will still quality for a payment. You have to specify if your phone is 'Working', 'Non-working' or 'Beyond Economical Repair', but mopay.co.uk give a clear list of how these three categories are qualified; for example, having broken battery terminals means that the phone is beyond repair but not having a battery means non-working and therefore might still quality for a payment.
You can also choose to accept gift vouchers rather than a cash payment, and in some cases you are given a higher value if you are prepared to accept vouchers.
Most of the mobile devices received by MoPay are reconditioned and introduced back into the market. If they can't be fixed or reconditioned they will be recycled according to the WEEE Directive.
There's also the option to donate the money you receive for your phone to one of the charities that MoPay support, such as WWF, Crisis and Fauna & Floral International.
