Short messaging service, popularly known as SMS is the quickest way to deliver your message. Despite of its usefulness, the mobile service providers are less interested in decreasing the cost of sending an SMS, instead they are reducing cost of voice calls (which is essential too!). Keeping the high costs of sms’s in mind as well as the requirements of people with no access to their mobile phone (in offices, etc), i have compiled a list of sites with which you can send free sms to almost all the countries around the world. Before you read on about free sms sites, please keep in mind that the sites allowing you to send free sms are based on advertising model i.e they may or may not attach an AD with your message. And DONT use these services in case of emergencies. So, here goes the list:
First of all Yakedi is available only for the residents of australia. So, if you are not an Australian then skip this one and read about the next site. Yakedi is the best site to send SMS to Australian and New Zealand users. It provides fast delivery of messages and has a user friendly interface.
Gizmo is known for its voip calling. Not many know that it also provides free sms’ing. What i liked about GizmoSMS is that you can send free sms to any number worldwide without even signing up for the service (Though you’ll get only 80 characters).
It is also an ad based free service which requires users to sign up at the website before sending free SMS to (individual) mobile numbers worldwide. Other than providing free sms’es, it also provides the feature of organizing phonebooks, groups and replies.
Wadja is yet another online free SMS service provider which lets its users to send 80 character SMS to almost anywhere in world (200 countries). What i like most about wadja is its delivery speed when sending international messages and its mobile portal, which really comes in handy.
5. Google sms channel
Google sms channel is more of a sharing service than a sms service. You need to create a sms channel and all those who are subscribed to that channel will receive the sms i.e you can send them free sms (and not to anyone else). It is a great way to share jokes, etc with friends.
Way2sms is probably the only service that allows its user to send a sms of upto 140 Characters for free to any mobile number in India. Moreover, you can check status of your sent messages and save mobile numbers in it’s inbuilt address book. All these facilities are covered by displaying lots (and i mean LOTS) of advertisement on their web portal which makes it tacky. But nevertheless, its a free sms service.
This is one of my favourite site for sending free sms to any mobile in india. Similar to other free sms providers, it also runs on ads attached to sms. But the best part is ads are most of time relevant (and sometimes useful too!). Other than that, the site also provides an inbuilt address book, ready made sms for different occasions and a java application for mobile phone’s.
Using SMS7 you can send free SMS upto 440 Characters to any GSM/CDMA Mobile Number in India. You can also scheduled SMS. What catches the eye is fast delivery of sms along with accurate delivery reports.
It is a free sms sending service which doesn’t require registration for the same (number of sms are limited for unregistered users). I have used this service for a while and didn’t find its delivery time and sometimes the messages weren’t delivered at all.
It is a social networking website and free sms is just one small feature it provides to its registered members all over the world. One unique service provided by this website is that of Group SMS service, you can send a SMS to all your friends at the same time with just a click.
It is a free SMS & MMS Sending service, featuring tools to add free sms sending to myspace, SMS sending to over 100 countries all over the world.
Besides the one’s mentioned above, there are a number of sites that provide free sms. However, the ones mentioned here are tried and tested sites. I am also listing down some of the other sites that i have heard of (good reviews) but haven’t tested them:
Though i am not a sms addict and rarely use sms for interaction. However, from my experience of using the free sms sites, i recommend the following:
Wadja (for international users)
160by2 (for users in India)
Way2sms (for Indian users)
I hope you find at least one site which suits your needs. If you know of any other site worth mentioning, then do let us know via comments section.
UPDATE: One of the reader, Vinita, has suggested a free site Bollywoodmotion for sending free sms’s. Though, i haven’t yet tested this site but prima facie, it looks to be a a good site allowing users to send sms with 500 characters!

this is the great site to send the msg 200 charcters,,,,,, just register here and injoy the benift to send the msgs in anywhere in india
That’s what I just said. May be, 160by2 was good before. Even I also used it. But, for now, way2sms is just best in my personal opinion.
great brother…sharing so many tricks us…..pls send me a trick for free std call to 1no….i am from gujurat…1no.is from odisha.
I don’t think they will be earning much from advertisements. Some collaboration with company might be possible (for mass sms’s). Anyway, the point is as of now they work and better than the rest.
I, personally don’t know how way2sms manage their expenses. They may have sponsors. In fact, their website is full of advert banners. Those may be the source of their income.
Things change with change in time. 160by2 was far better than way2sms when It was launched. However now way2sms has a better grip on managing free sms sending service. What I still don’t understand is how does way2sms manage their expenses by NOT attaching adverts.
I tried many sms-sender websites, I saw, most users use 160by2 and Way2Sms. I tried both. In my personal opinion, Way2SMS is better than 160by2.
Reason 1. Way2SMS doesn’t send advertisements attached with smses like 160by2 sends.
Reason 2. Way2SMS can be easily accessed from mobile phones (I’m using S60 5th handset) whereas, 160by2 sometimes hangs/locks on the phone browser.
Reason 3. When a receipent receives a SMS via Way2SMS, receipent sees the sender’s mobile number in the message inbox. If you receive a sms which is sent via 160by2, in your message inbox, you’ll see “TM-160by2” as the sender.
Aren’t these 3 basic reasons make Way2SMS better than 160by2?
its good i used it recently,160by2 s better,but sometimes in mobile its unable to open,
Go to http://www.mjoy.com nd enjoy free sms to the world dear! Register and send free sms evry where
Use 160by2’s mobile application. It can almost do what you asked for 😉

Indyarocks is now probably the best out there.
It provides 140 char SMS, Free Group SMS, PhoneBook backup, scheduling of SMS etc. its my current favorite.
I consider way2sms to be more reliable service.
I always use Sms7.in and way2sms…
it really rocks….
