Recently one of the most popular sites on TextMeFree.com has been a free text messaging service to Uganda. People searching for sms to Africa and in particular searches for www.7197.ug are bringing a lot of traffic to our site.
Many of the free African sms services can prove to be unreliable, but 7197.ug seems to be working well and has received some good reviews at TextMeFree.com.
The service is owned by True African and lets you send free text messages to mobiles in Uganda on the MTN and UTL networks.
At TextMeFree.com we also list three other sms services for Uganda, three for South Africa – including Vodacom and SimpleSMS – and one service for Zambia.
For Nigeria we do list one service called smsfree4all, but this service does not work at all, and we only keep it listed to try to stop people from wasting their time by using it.
