Is the free sms like you connect to the internet, use this app and it sends the receiver a real SMS?

i assume you get limited free real sms on a monthly basis. but of course, the app would need to be connected to the internet for it to work at all.

well. this app is differentiating itself by offering local sms support in india. whatsapp of course does not work with people who do not have whatsapp installed. not sure if chaton or other apps provide a similar feature. i wish google merges messenger and chat feature so that it becomes more useful. currently, i end up starting conversation that never reaches the other party because they are not using the google+ app on their smartphones.

lol. i guess in that case, these guys would also not get the sms messages as well. makes this app worthless.

of course they are going to be using their own sms gateway which is powered by that number.

MJOY used to be better in this case, they used to send the message in regular SMS format with no advertisement.
