How these ‘SEND FREE SMS’ sites are benefitted?
March 20, 2013 9:25am CST
Today I saw this advertisement, ‘Tired of paying to send Text messages? Send FREE text messages (SMS) to almost any major cell phone in the world!’ It's 100% free of use, with no gimmicks! No information is collected in our database.’ WE DO NOT ALLOW any unsolicited SMS, spam or illegal sms from our site. clientscommunication.com is tracking every single user who uses this free service. This means that all transactions are recorded and will be used against who violate and abuse the service.’ Well it looks good to me. [b]But my question is; ‘What benefit these FREE SMS sites get?’ They must be having some gain for providing such services, no service can be free. I guess; this way they can collect so many cell phone numbers. I never use such services to send free SMS in India even. Do you use service of such sites to send free sms?[/b] Please respond and share your experience and views. Thanks in advance. Professor Dr. B.Saraf. PhD. Cheers have a lucky day ahead.

they get money for just as how mylot gets...when a particular website is very active,its rank increases and they get paid more for the increased activity..and everyone would wanna send free sms instead of goin for a sms offer...all they would have to do is subscribe for a data plan..thst way they can use the web and send sms as well..

me?in my case i dont know how to send message via free .but i apreciate the government to build that such idea to have free sms sending message for free in just for an emergence matters because if its unlimited or open to all it will lead to abuse text message in non sense way so therefore thats might cause no good in society lead to crisis especially in the philippines.the question is how to control that site perfectly without fail?

hi, prof. i use viber (free calls and SMS worldwide). you just need internet access on your mobile. the line is clear and the sms arrives fast. i am very satisfied with their services. all transactions, even on our paid phone lines, are recorded. haven't you noticed that when a crime happens, it is now easy for the investigators (police) to have access with all the phone's activities?

namaskar sir These free sms sites earn much of their revenue by displaying adverts just like mylot. MyLot too makes good money via the adverts and that is where from they pay their users. I do not send SMS to anyone unless it is an occasion and I do it paid. I dont like those free sms sites. And as far as I know, these free sms sites do sell the cell numbers despite their promises of - "No information is collected in our database.’ WE DO NOT ALLOW any unsolicited SMS, spam or illegal sms from our site." - they sell it to others and make money from them too. If you have been using these sites, I am sure you would have been getting calls from many organizations unless you have the DND enabled.
