How to send instant free SMS (text messaging) or emails or voicemails?
Notifu has a very friendly ajaxified interface and users can learn using it as quickly as they can send messages.Get started by clicking “Send New Message”.
Type in your name and the message to send and if you want to collect predefined alternative responses, you can do that as well.Then click on the arrow beside the names against “To:” and fill the recipient details.
You can specify either a single delivery address for every user or several alternate delivery addresses by choosing escalating addresses.You can even send the message to a distribution list (DL).However I have not tested the DL feature.I feel that there are a few bugs to be sorted out.
That is all folks. Notifu is currently an 100% free service, including sending SMS or text message and voice messages to anywhere in the world. However, this may change soon and there will be a free Edition and pro Edition and some features will require the Pro Edition (like sending SMS messages, sending voice messages, etc). I did try sending voice message to phones in India, but I got a message stating “Banned Destination” 🙁 however it is definitely a cool service to send free SMS or text messages right now 🙂
I did send an SMS to my phone and I received it instantaneously and the sender phone number was +919901265555 . What are you waiting for? Get registered at Notifu.com and enjoy the free service to send instant SMS or text messaging, voicemails and emails. Get connected everywhere from anywhere.
