Hi, I work in the wap waps where there is limited to no cell phone coverage on either networks. I want to text my mates to plan after work activities e.g. pub. Is there some way i can txt people via a website, preferably using my own cell phone number? (027)

Cheers

edit: oh no "replies to Web Texts will only be received by the recipient if the recipient has mobile network coverage to receive calls and data" Fricken Idiot!

From a thread earlier this month:

i am using e-txt from downloads.com, my other half has a 027 and it work's, you get 50 free txts before being asked for a CC, will try and find a loop hole in it some how, but this programme does work for 027, and is one telecom use's also.

Errr... Sms.ac is an infamous purportedly-claimed free texting service provided by some company who is hungry for spam victim, if I am not mistaken?

Tell me if you have spotted any grammatical and / or typographical mistakes in my posts'victim' should be plural in this context.

Stay away from SMS.ac - SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM is the only thing I can say about it (and if you've never received text spam, you're lucky)..

By the way;
There are only 5 free messages and the rest is quite sharply priced something like$ 14.- Pounds(GB) per 200 messages.
So i think it is better to stay with web-to txt from our locals
