text messaging from a pc

  troika 20:07 13 Feb 2004

it might be a bit of a silly question but is there any way to send free text messages to a mobile phone from a pc via broadband?

alternatively is there a way of sending free texts to mobiles using an ordinary dial up connection ?

a free program on the last PCA disc that did this very thing?

loads of places mate. go to click here and put a search in for free text messages, and that should sort you out.

Hi troika.
Who is your isp and phone service provider.
I do not know if they do it now, but tiscali used to allow I think it was 10 per day. and if you have an o2 phone and register on their web site you can send I think 30txts. It would be worth your while if nobody else confirms sites to check the web site for your phone service provider. Cheers, Flobby

if you register with o2 you can send 30 free texts a month, but there is a wee advertising blurb at the end. click here this software app makes it very easy to text from the desktop - only through o2.

with o2 you can have more than 1 account, 1 for the wife, son, daughter

orange also give you 30 free a month if you register, that's the only networks we use, don't know about the others

You don't have to have an O2 phone to use their free texts - I'm with Orange but use O2 to send text from my PC.
