The only problem we've had is with people telling us tex2 is too good to be true. I'm here to say, loud and clear, that it isn't.

tex2, the world's favourite free text messaging service, breaks all records.
As tex2, the no-strings text messaging application that the BBC christened 'Skype for mobiles' celebrates its 1st birthday, it's growing faster than even its inventors thought possible. A host of new stuff means tens of thousands of users in 54 countries are enjoying essentially free text messaging.
The reasons are simple:
Tex2 is now available on all networks -- a world first. It's been given a sexy new website that lets you message from your PC. It turns every mobile into a Blackberry type device. Send mobile email easily and for free.
Word's getting round that tex2 is the only truly non-commercial, no-strings-attached game in town; and the guys behind it are 100% genuine in what they've are set out to do.
tex2 uses the Internet part of a mobile phone to send messages between people who have first downloaded the tex2 application. Bypassing the networks' normal charging mechanisms means they can only charge a tiny fraction of a penny to send a tex2 message. The tex2 application itself is free.

Says tex2 inventor, Phil Jones, "We had a hunch we'd be able to send texts by GPRS and save people a fortune. A year on, I'm delighted to say we're doing just that. That's our motivation. Why should the networks get away with up to 10p a text at home and 44p if you're abroad?"
Jones says that, using tex2, a pre pay user could save anything up to £25 a month on their text bill: much more if they regularly text abroad. "The only problem we've had is with people telling us tex2 is too good to be true. I'm here to say, loud and clear, that it isn't."
Lorraine Keane, is enthusiastic about tex2. "I have a boyfriend in Ireland and I was spending more than £70 a month on texting too and fro. It's a couple of quid now; I hardly notice it and we're texting all the time," she says.
Stuart Kennedy is in his final year at Aberdeen University and a tex2 fan. "As a student at I take my virtual hat off to you -- I wish there were more people who shared your altruistic approach."
Adds Jones, "We have developed several commercial applications based on the core technology, which pay the bills to keep the free tex2 service up and running. That means we're able to pledge that tex2 will always be free to download and use -- with no strings attached."
