Send Free SMS to Mobile Phones

Not long ago, it was all email. Yahoo!, Hotmail, Excite, etc. were among some of the popular free email services enjoyed. All that a person had to do was to sign up for an account and then log in to the account and send email messages to any person who also had an account, not necessarily with the same provider as the sender. The beauty of it all was that it was free! Today, email is becoming less popular even though it is still generally free. (SMS) and (IM) are taking the centre stage. SMS is one of the most popular means of communication today. In fact, text messaging is the most widely used mobile data service, with 74% of all mobile phone users worldwide, or 2.4 billion out of 3.3 billion phone subscribers, at the end of 2007 being active users of the SMS. Even though, it is generally a paid service, people still use it more often than they use email which is generally free. More and more people are getting accustomed to SMS.
