Few days back i had written a post about sending free SMS in India using 160by2 and Way2Sms in my post Send Free SMS in India using 160by2 and now, I just checked and found that Yahoo Mail too has added another feature of sending messages to your Mobile Phone.

SMS Through Yahoo Mail

Follow the below mentioned steps to send Free SMS using Yahoo Mail.

1.) Login to your Yahoo Mail account (Yahoo Mail beta and not the classic one)

2.) Click on the New Drop down and select TextMessage.

3.) Add the number/contact to which you wish to send the message and click on send.

Its FREE but the catch is that you can only send maximum of 5 sms to a contact after which your contact person needs to reply at least once and then your quota of 5 starts all over again. Although, am not sure of the pricing as far as the reply message is concerned.

This feature is as of now available only for Yahoo users in India,Canada, US and Philippines.

Yahoo mail definitely according to me is going places as compared to Gmail. Lets see who races further ahead in this race of better email service.

    The 5 sms limit is to ensure that you don’t spam anybody with messages.. I should say that is a benefit, otherwise the telemarketing idiots would use that as well!

    How long do I have to tolerate all the following bulshit supposed to be originated from Yahoo? Isn’t there anybody responsible to bring those people to Court, for trying to deceiving me into revealing my password which should then be used against my will and without my knowledge to all my contacts for illegal purposes?
