How to send Free SMS (Free text) with Gmail to Globe, Sun Cellular and Smart

Last updated: September 12, 2013 by 4 Comments

With Gmail you can now send free text messages to your love ones to selected countries all over the world and to local telcos such as Globe, Smart and Sun Cellular. This service from google can be used as alternative to Chikka which is very popular in the Philippines for offering Free text messages. I got the idea lately when I’m chatting with my relatives using google chat I notice a Send SMS tab located next to Inbox. I don’t know when this service started but for sure it will be of help to everyone here in the Philippines and Filipinos abroad. All you need to do is create a gmail account (assuming you don’t have one) look for the Send SMS tab below the inbox. Supply the supported mobile operators and country phone number then follow the rest of the procedure afterwards. If you have relatives in Singapore unfortunately singtel and starhub is not supported of this service.

You are allotted to send 50 Free SMS (Free Text) daily (with 150 characters each) everytime you send text message the free sms will be reduced by 1. Every reply you receive the phone user will be charge equivalent to P2.00 which is lower by 50 cents compared to chikka. For the details see below:

SMS Quotas in Chat
A quota is an allocation of SMS (text messages) that you’re able to send to a mobile phone:
1. Initially, you’re granted a quota of fifty messages.
2. Every time you send a message, your quota decreases by one.
3. Every time you receive an SMS message in Chat (for example when a phone user replies to one of your messages) your quota increases by five, up to a maximum of 50.
If your quota goes down to zero at any point, it will increase back up to one 24 hours later. So, you won’t ever be locked out of the system.

“Buying” additional messages
Keep in mind that if you’d like a higher message quota, you can always send an SMS to your own phone, and then reply to that message multiple times. Every time you send a reply message, your quota is increased by five. Effectively, you’re buying more messages by paying your phone company for these outgoing messages.
