Free SMS

  1. Apr 12, 2003 #1
    Hi everyone.
    In the last two weeks i was trying to develop any peice of code that would send free SMS worldwide.
    I unded up with an ASP site, which sends free SMS (almost) worldwide.
    But ... it is still under testing, and it seems to be very slow.
    Please feel free to visit it on www.brokenegg.tk[/URL] , and tell me what you think, and wether you see it too slow or it is ok.
    Any comment or advice will be appreciated.

    Also tell me what you think of the design.
    BTW, this is the thread number 1001 i think, this is strange cause the link shows this is thread number 1089, but in the forum statistics there are only 1001 threads ! (and i posted the last one i think, cause i checked the stats just after i made this thread).

    Still standing by...

    It doesn't seem to do anything.

    Where exactly did you face the problem ? (opening the site or actually sending the SMS ?)
    There are currently lots of problems with the .TK domain servers, therefore here is the alternative link :

    ICQ sends SMS's for free to most Australian Mobile networks (certain networks allow it, some don't.) I know they have this service world wide, but I don't know how many networks it works for overseas...

    Well, ICQ supports lot of networks overseas (it supports one of the two networks of Jordan), but the problem is the limit of ICQ.
    ICQ limits you to 10 SMS per day, while my system does not limit you in any person basis (but there is a system-basis limit, which will be raised each time the limit gets closer to 0 (meaning : the SMS will never expire !)).
    And, ICQ needs login, my system does not need any.
    But ...
    ICQ is faster than my system ! (host problems i think ..)

    The first site works good and it goes fast enough, but when I send my SMS I get a page that says:" Sending, please stand by...". But tht little icon of internet explorer isn't turning so I guess it doesn't work.

    The second link didn't work. At least not as fast as the second.

    But if you get it to work I'll be using it a lot.

    When the page containing "Sending Please Wait ...", another window will pop up.
    The popup is the page that actually does all the work, so you are not supposed to close that window :smile:.
    After sending is over, the page containing "Sending, Please Wait ..." will automatically reload into another page.
