Free SMS – fsms.co.za

If you are one of those people who are very particular about how much they spend and whether or not it’s justifiable, then you will definitely love this…… free national SMSs withing South Africa; and you can send upto 20 per day too. What could be better than that? I send an average of about 10 local SMSs per day; that evidently translates to R 3.5 (a local SMS costs 35c… utter madness if you ask me; and did I mention that an international SMS costs 5 times as much? Insane! call me if you think thats justifiable when they don’t even pay Interconnect fees for SMSs).

All you do to start using those free SMSs is bascally  register on their website (http://fsms.co.za/) and you’ll have access to free 20 SMSs everyday.

I must admit, I was a bit hesitant when I first stumbled upon the website (there are always strings attached) but it turned out to be a legitimate thing after all. So whats in it for them you ask? Well, they’ll probably sell off your information to potentional business establishments out there and they will in turn run targeted SMS campaigns.

However, you should be aware of the following:

  • You are limited to 110 characters and not the conventional 160 characters (thats cause they use up the remaining characters to append an advertisement message of their own)
  • There is an annoying “SMS free on FSMS.co.za, no hidden fees!” message appended to every SMS you send out.

Happy texting and happy saving as well.

  • received activation code .so what now? getting started

  • Hi Brian,
    they use the validation code to ensure that they register the correct MSIDN. What you need to do is go to the final step (which you can access using the link below) and enter the validation code you received.

  • sive

    hey there, ive got an fsms account but the problem is that all my messages are recieved onto the application online and not onto my phone, the older version of FSMS allowed one to fix that, but now i dont know how to go about it on the new version, please help

    • Hello Sive, it appears there have been a number of mishaps after the changes they made to the Website interface. If you are on Facebook, the best thing to do is to go to fsms.co.za’s wall (http://goo.gl/WgpZa) and complain about it. I hope this helps.

    • @Nhlanhla, its probably a formatting issue of some sort. Make sure the syntax of your mobile number is correct.
      0 Network Code Mobile Number
      e.g. 082XXXXXXX
      Please make sure the mobile number has a total of ten(10) digits.
      I hope this helps.
