[GMail] Send free SMS to Smart number using GMail

With Google's Gmail SMS, you can send free SMS (text messages) to your Smart Mobile friends, directly from your Gmail account!


  • - FREE to receive the SMS 
  • - Only 1cent/SMS sent out from the phone


1. Type your friend's smart phone number in the search box, then click on Send SMS to create a new contact

2. Create a name for your new contact, then click Save

3. The chat box will pop up on the bottom right corner of your screen, just write your message and hit Enter to send

4. Next time when you have already had your friend in the list, just type their name in the search box instead of their number or you can do both ways.

SMS credit in Chat

SMS credit is an allocation of SMS (text messages) that you're able to send to a mobile phone:
  • - Initially, you're granted a credit of fifty messages.
  • - Every time you send a message, your credit decreases by one.
  • - Every time you receive an SMS message in Chat (for example when a phone user replies to one of your messages) your credit increases by five, up to a maximum of 50.If your SMS credit 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 credit, 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 SMS credit is increased by five. Effectively, you're buying more messages by paying your phone company for these outgoing messages.
