Eager texter, is that you? Then you should subscribe for Tyke SMS™ service.

Is it Free?

Well, to avoid any confusion from the start … if you’re looking for free SMS, you’ve come to the wrong place.

Tyke SMS™ is not different from any SMS provider and have to charge clients for SMS delivery.

So what about free SMS sites?

Nothing comes for free.. Anyway, someone has to pay for a text message to be delivered. While a web site might offer free texting to its customers, the operator of that web site is paying for SMS messages to be delivered. That is why these sites limit the number of messages that you can send within a given period, and why they go out of their way to ensure that you submit messages through their web site instead of using automated programs.

The cost of providing the free SMS service on these sites is usually subsidized by advertising. Advertisers pay the site to run ads, and at the end of the day, the goal is to collect more in advertising revenue than is spent providing the service.

Other free SMS sites may have different reasons for providing a free service. The free service might be a teaser for a premium service, providing just enough functionality that the web site operator hopes that it will encourage free users to migrate to a paid service.

Thus, you should remember that there is somebody who is paying for the text messages to be delivered.
