Blast from the past! FREE Text messaging with CBFSMS.Com [It's still ALIVE!]

Found 15th Mar 2016
Just looking at mobile deals and what now and all of a sudden... i remembered this old gem! We used to use this at school!

1. it got a free text message to a mate
2. It was cheaper and easier than training a pigeon
3. Because of reasons.

Okay, so it's not going to be the smoothest way of getting a text message across, but it does allow you to send a text message for free, if for whatever reason you have no text allowance/calls left

We used to use this to tell people things we could probably shout to them across the classroom Like "Want to buy a push pop? "I Got Freddos for 15p, C U @ Lunch m8"

I know! Tested it and it's still going strong! It used to take about half hour to get the text
Fond, fond memories of using this back in the day, heat

Actually used this the other week to text the wife while my phone was in for repair!

I use this when roaming sometimes as it's cheaper to send a free sms using wifi than activate £3 a day euro traveller on Vodafone
I was thinking the same! I used it in Europe last year to text my wife who then sent replies directly to my phone. Still serves a purpose!

They dropped their fee, conveniently after i'd paid for 2 years of service. I was livid. I suppose I can't complain too much though.
