My most recent source of free SMS via the web – “Lycos”:http://www.lycos.co.uk/ – has stopped offering them and I would like to find a replacement. I used to use “O2”:http://www.o2.co.uk/ but they revised their privacy policy so that if you wanted to keep using them to send SMSes you had to be open to receiving third party marketing messages in return. ICQ claims to offer free UK SMS but a) they “don’t send to Virgin Mobile or 3”:http://web.icq.com/sms/smsnetworks/ and b) I have found their message sending to O2, Vodafone and Orange a little erratic. So can you make any other suggestions?
