Send Free SMS to any Mobile Number in the World with JaxtrSMS Beta

When it comes to free texting or SMS from web services, there are many services available, but most of them are paid or uses separate numbers to send SMS. Yahoo Messenger also had the feature to send free SMS, but was limited to few countries. JaxtrSMS is a new service from the founder of Hotmail, Sabeer Bhatia and allows you to send free SMS to any mobile number across the world and most important thing is that you can send these SMS using your own number. You need to download and install an app for JaxtrSMS on your mobile and register to start sending SMS.

The app is available for Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Symbian, Java and Nokia phones.

First you need to register with the service using your mobile number and then verify your account with the link you receive to your mobile in SMS. Once you have confirmed the number, you can just start sending free SMS across the world.

The iPad app with 3G has been tested and the service worked effortlessly delivering the SMS within seconds of sending it. Please make sure that you key in the correct country code while sending the SMS.

Another good feature of this app is that you can select the contacts to send the SMS directly from your mobile phone contacts.

JaxtrSMS is a cross-platform, open texting application and the world’s first FREE and OPEN mobile to mobile texting application that will allow users to send and receive messages with any other mobile phone in the world for FREE.

JaxtrSMS promises to do for SMS, what Hotmail did for e-mail! Using it, you will be able to now send messages to all in your address book whether they have the app or not.

Nice, I reckon I'll give this a go. Also, I'll send a link to this thread to my Dad who works in Nigeria, my Brother who works in China and lives in Spain and my Auntie who lives in New Zealand!
Cheers!

Cool! Thanks

so how does this work?

It sends a link to all your contacts

This is great app launched by founder of Hotmail, sabeer bhatia...

thanks

What's the payoff? - does that mean they get a note of *all* your contacts? seems a price too high for me!

there are other companies with similiar sounding names doing the same did a google and came up with this take a look

labnol.org/int…52/

edit not all these companies are free phone calls some only certain countries


for the android market users free apps to send free sms abroad

hopefully this will work a charm as living in N.Ireland can frequently be hit for roaming charges when sending texts to Republic of Ireland

does it use data ? gprs ?

Do you need some sort of internet connection at all?

Not at all. Santa's little helpers come every few hours and deliver our texts

seems a bit flaky but good for those Christmas SMSes

how can you do this? the registration needs a mobile phone number

My husband registered on his ipod with no 3G, used his Nokia number (with no internt) and then forwarded the link to my blackberry to verify. And now sending free SMS from his IPOD with no 3G overseas!
Thanks, HEAT

Attaches a very long spiel at the end of texts, but otherwise great.

Tried it on my Blacberry & works like a treat for UK numbers. Will install it on my iPad too. Have to check how it works on delivering messages to non-UK numbers.

I sent to 3 UK mobiles a couple of hors ago and none of them have received anything.
Have other people done this successfully today?

Magic, thx OP

Been sending texts and receiving from NYC buddies - great thank OP

how is this different to whatsapp and viber text message service?

So both sides were running the app?

Yes and I'm about to send you 35,000 texts.

No, that would be completely unfair.

Make it 15,000.

This needs WiFi or your mobile data to send texts to other mobiles. A couple of scenarios off the top of my head:
1. Use an Android/iOS device that's not a phone (tablet, MP3 player, etc) to send SMS via WiFi, just set up a disposable SIM card number
2. Use your smartphone in a rural area where the mobile connection is virtually non-existent, but WiFi is available - holiday cottages, for instance

Do you need some sort of internet connection at all?


Yes, it needs either Wifi or network data.

I've just tested this. A few things to note:

1. When it asks for first name and surname, you can get away with just first name.
2. I used a disposable SIM number that I had in my Nokia, but installed the app on my iPhone. So, it doesn't even check if the number you've entered is the same as the one in the phone.
3. If like me you use a disposable SIM number, bear in mind it'll send you a lengthy URL. Type that into your web browser on your PC and you'll get a message saying it's successful (if you typed it right).
4. When you send texts via the app, the message will end with:
"-YourName +44YourNumber Snt FREE by jaxtrSMS. Click jaxtrsms.com to download"

thanks

I'm using ...its working great.....in the morning I have installed ...and sending sms to many frnds who live in India...they are getting and using this software and replying me its working absolutely great & free...hurray...!!!

This sounds excellent, to reply to one of these messages without the app is it just the normal cost for a SMS message?

I'm highly sceptical about this. They have to pay a fee for sending the text messages, so what exactly do they get out of it?

Thanks, installed and tested and works fine, sent 2 messages to my other phone, received then and there, Will keep on phone handy for when my goodybag runs out and I cant afford another I can use it as a temp free message system!.
