How to send free sms from Gmail

Posted by Suntrekker on December 7, 2007

This was taken from Star newspaper.

I want to share this to you.

Here’s a neat trick for Gmail users and fans of free text. While signed-in to Gmail, they can send SMS to mobile phones.

Add mobile buddies by clicking Add Contact on the embedded chat client.
Type in a buddy’s mobile number followed by @chickkatalk.com (for example:
63917 xxxxxxx@-chickkatalk.com). The mobile buddy will then be included in the Gtalk buddy list. Double-click the buddy’s name and fire away with text messages!

This feature is powered by Chikka, creator of the popular gateway to texting mobiles from a PC via a mobile instant messenger (IM).

Chikka actually announced its Chikka Messenger’s interoperability with Google Talk (Gtalk) last year. Thus one may now also “Chikka” from Gtalk and vice versa. Messenger’s interoperability with Google Talk (Gtalk) last year. Thus one may now also “Chikka” from Gtalk and vice versa.

Messages sent from Gmail or Gtalk will be received by a Chikka chat buddy on his mobile as SMS when he is logged off from his PC.

Happy texting ^_^
