At TextMeFree.com one of the most comment questions we receive is “How to send free sms without having to register?”
It’s true that many online free sms services make you register and give up certain details before being able to use their service, and this is mainly for security rather than wanting to have your details to use, such as adding you to a mailing list.
Having said that, there are (at the time of writing) 106 free text messaging services listed at TextMeFree.com that give free sms without making you register first.
Please note though, that these services will log your IP address in case there are any unscrupulous texters out there who want to send abusive messages.
Every free sms service at TextMeFree is reviewed, and at the bottom of each review there is a summary of the following main points:
- Registration required?
- Receive messages?
- Confirmed delivery of messages?
- Message length?
- Message quota?
If registration is not required, it will most probably be mentioned in the review text too.
To make it really easy for you, here is a link to all the services we list that do not require registration. (The country they can be used to send free sms messages to is shown above each listing.)

CBFSMS – Free sms for the UK
Do these services work?
Many of the sms services that you don’t have to register for come and go very quickly, some of them don’t work at they promise to. The only thing you can do is to first send an sms either to someone or to yourself where you are able to check that it arrives.
Wherever possible at TextMeFree.com we try to test the sms services ourselves, however, some of them only work in certain countries so it’s impossible to test them all.
My advice is to use TextMeFree.com to search for free text messaging services that work in the country that you want to text (or use one of the worldwide services listed). Read the review, read the comments left by other users, and see how the service has been rated. If it all seems good, then register in order to use the site.
The services that you have to register for, tend to work better and stay around for longer.
