Free SMS From CallWave

There are a handful of free SMS services out there, but CallWave is my favorite. You can either install it as an OS X Dashboard widget, a Yahoo Widget Engine (Konfabulator) widget, or even as a Google Gadget on your Google Homepage (instructions here). If you use Windows Vista, you can install it as a standalone Vista gadget.

Yes, it works on Philippine networks. You can also send text to most other countries. And unlike most free PC to SMS providers I know, CallWave is pretty quick–messages are received in just a few seconds.

The Google Gadget version is pretty sparse and you have to regsiter your mobile number to use it. The OS X Widget has more features, as it can access numbers from your Mac phonebook for easy reference. I haven’t tried the other versions, though. But I’m pretty sure they’re all straightforward and easy to use.

  • Interesting … I wonder how many messages we can send before it stops working unless the recipient replies … hmmmm

  • I tried installing it in my Google Homepage, it won’t come up. Its just a blank space. Let me try later.

  • hmm… hindi parin dumadating verification code.. aw

  • It finally appeared after 3 refreshes.

    It took about 2 hours for the verification to arrive. Time to try it out.

  • Edit:

    Received test SMS. It took about 1 second to receive it.

    Wuhu!

  • I believe there’s a daily sending limit. Mga 10 yata per day. I’m not sure if this is dependent on the country, or the sender.

  • Finally got the verification. I was only able to send 5 messages before I reached my limit. Shucks …

  • try this site…www.teksbox.com

  • Seems not all HK Mobile Operators are allowing the SMS/Text Message to be received.

  • Callwave Google Gadget works! If I remember correctly, the limit was only implemented recently.. before, I used to send a lot (exceeding 5) of texts. Besides, it can only be blocked if the recipient blocks the service online, right?

    I tried a few but got capped like within 3 minutes!!! Then i found this in a post….

    http://www.yoober.com

    It’s a beta program, but works fine on my nokia, and invited 12 friends on it (can’t invite anymore at the moment).

    Basically, it lets me send as many free text messages as i want – right from my mobile, without paying a cent in SMS fees to Globe!

    Hope this helps!
