The reason I write this post beacause of the following incident. I wanted to send an SMS to a Tigo mobile number one day but I did not have any credit in my phone or nor money to put a reload. I was searching a site to send a free SMS and only found sites that could send SMS to Mobitel. Or I forget to tell that I have a Mobitel sim. I was helplesss. I went to wow.lk to send an SMS, shit it had to confirm by other party to recieve an SMS. Coz my partner also did not have credit, what shall I do. I searched all over the internet. I found nothing to send a simple sms free to Tigo with my Mobitel number. Then I asked my friend Danesh , about this. coz he has a Tigo sim and also I knew he has much experience in blogging. Then he gave me a nice site to send my SMS, I just wanted to share it with you all. Most of the sites you might already know might be as follows. They all does not give the flexiblility or does not cover all mobile networks in Srilanka.
www.wow.lk – Dialog, Tigo, Mobitel – But you have to send a request to other party before you send SMS, then you need to wait until he accept it, and also you cannot use your real phone number. And clearly very slow site almost impossible if your internet connection is slow. But useful once accepted, not for emergency. 143 character limit
– similar to wow. headache but faster than wow. 120 character limit
smstosrilanka.ananmanan.com/ - This is a nice site to send an SMS at an emergency. But only to Mobitel. You don’t need to register. use this if you send sms to mobitel. But not from your mobile number – 144 character limit. www.cutelanka.com/sms/ – 120 character limit. www.openarc.lk/sms/sendsms.html – NO character limit same as other
sms.kaputa.com/ – you can send free SMS to Dialog, Mobitel once typed the random text. But not from your mobile number. – 120 character limit
www.mulpituwa.com/freesms/sms.php - Do NOT USE THIS, you might face privacy issues. not sure any one can see your phone number it is saved in a text file called ‘mulpi_tuwa_s_m_s.txt’. my number also I found saved there, after my try. I recommend you to NOT try. And my SMS also did not send successfully. Once I download the text file it was around 2.22MB imagine how many phone numbers in a simple text file.
But the best site I recomend you is the one Danesh given me. It’s
www.wadja.com - you have to register here. But its not slow as WOW or it does not need to send pending acceptance requests. Registration only takes 2 mins at most. coz I used for an emmergency after fed up with wow. The problem is 90 character limit. But you can register your phone number free and without any cost of money, it will appear as sending from your number to the other party.
Hope this information would helpful for some one trying to send free SMS in SriLanka
