Text Messaging for Free

Communication is the essential key that shrinks our world and brings people together. Since its invention, the telephone has historically been the centerpiece of communication. People can communicate in real time without physically traveling for face-to-face meetings.

As communication technology has grown, new means of communication are being adopted in every enterprise. Today communication can be achieved using a broad range of facilities including voice, video and text/data communication through fixed and wireless devices.

In recent years, Short Messaging Services (SMS) has become a phenomenon especially among young people. SMS allows for short text messages to be sent from one mobile device to another mobile device.

SMS text messaging is the most widely used data application on the planet, with 2.4 billion active users, or 74% of all mobile phone subscribers sending and receiving text messages on their phones. Text messages cannot exceed 160 characters including spaces. Some wireless devices have full keyboards for faster texting whereas others require numbers to be tapped multiple times to achieve a particular letter. Most teens quickly master the cumbersome keyboards and adapt quickly to rapid texting. SMS is popular among teens to socialize, send jokes, flirts and reminders.

The most common application of the service is person-to-person messaging, but text messages are also often used to interact with automated systems, such as ordering products and services for mobile phones, or participating in contests. There are some services available on the Internet that allow users to send text messages free of direct charge to the sender. There are many email to text websites including most of the mobile service providers. All follow the same principle of giving free texting to the sender.

Since its inception in 2005, txt2day.com has been the largest free text service on the Internet, allowing anybody to send free text messages from their computer to a phone. Txt2day is ideal for users over their message limit, those stuck without a phone, or people who hate typing on tiny keyboards. For more information visit http://www.txt2day.com/
