How To Send Free Text Messages To Jamaica
Here's How to Send Free text messages to Jamaica (and even within Jamaica)
Every wonder how to send a free text message to a Jamaican mobile number regardless of the provider?
I'll show you in 10 seconds - and you'll be able to do it at zero cost!
You'll simply send it as an email.
This facility becomes even more helpful if you have many friends in Jamaica and would rather send then all one text, eg. "Happy New Year from Joan in Michigan".
Here is how...
- First, find your friend's Jamaican phone number.
It should be something like this "8764446387" (Your friend would normally give you only the last 7 digits)
- Check to find out the provider they use.
The majority of mobile users in Jamaica are subscribed to either Digicel and LIME.
But just to be sure, here's an easy way to find out...
- Go to http://www.whitepages.com/phone/.
- On the text area that it mentions "Reverse Phone", enter the Jamaican phone number and click "search" or the magnifying glass.
- The results will either say something like:
- Mossel (Jamaica) mobile phone from Kingston, JM
- Jamaica Tel. Co. landline from Discovryby, JM
Make a note of either.
You might get other results, but I find that all ALL DIGICEL NUMBER WILL SAY "Mossell Jamaica"- anything else is LIME!
- Next... Sign into your email account (yahoo, gmail etc.)
- Click on "Compose" (or create) an email message, as you'd normally do for regular emails.
- In the "To" field, simply enter either of the following:
- The mobile number (that is 876 + seven digits) then @digitextjm.com, if the provider said "Mossel (Jamaica) mobile phone" from step #2 above OR
- The Phone number, that is 876 + seven digits then @mylimemobile.com, if the provider said "Jamaica Tel. Co. landline" (or anything other than Mossel Jamaica) from step #2 above.
- At the end, the recipient's address should now look like this, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
- Simply type your message- you can type the entire text in the subject field or use the regular email body; the first 130 characters will be sent.
- Click Send email.
- That's it!
- Within short order your friend (or family) will receive your email as a text message on their phone in Jamaica!
- Just note that your email address will be sent as well and in the case of Mossell Jamaica" (Digicel) the recipient will see the sender as "555".
- There you have it! No verfication code, No sign up, Nothing!
Just a quick, simple, and FREE way to send free text (SMS) messages to to Jamaica using your email.
Jamaicans (locally) may also do the same - it doesn't have to be from outside the country.
I currently use this feature to send messages to many of my fellow clubites, cricketers, and travel business partners
to advise of updates and new developments.
It can also be an easy way for public relation officers, secretaries, church members, students or members of other organizations to communicate instantly.
