Websites featuring free texting include Txt2Day.com, TextEm.net and OpenTextingOnline.com. Each of these websites features an easy-to-use and reliable platform on the main page, with no registration, sign-in or fees other than applicable standard text messaging rates charged by the senders' and recipients' cellphone carriers.
TextEm.net allows users of its website to send text messages of up to 155 characters in length to cellphones on more than 50 networks, as of December 2015. TextEm.net guarantees it will not send advertisements or other extraneous text to senders or recipients or share cellphone numbers or associated data with third parties; however, its terms of service state that it has the right to view messages sent to recipients who file complaints. Users must input the name of a recipient's cellphone carrier; however, senders who don't have that information can look up a recipient's carrier at FoneFinder.net. Txt2Day.com's service is similar in most respects except that it limits text messages to 140 characters.
OpenTextingOnline.com bills itself as offering "true reliability and international reach" and allows users of its website to send text messages of up to 140 characters in length to cellphones on more than 100 global networks. While similar websites typically require users to input the name of a recipient's carrier, OpenTextingOnline.com allows users to select the country in which the recipient's network is based or use the Service Provider Look-up button on the left side of the main page.
