Send a free text online with Scratchr

We all know how it feels to either run out of credit on a pay as you go mobile or to find that the battery in your phone has gone flat. As if this isn't bad enough, when you really need to send a text message to someone it can become a real nuisance.

If you need to drop someone a quick SMS then why not use the power of modern technology (namely the Internet) and this website to send a free text message online? That's right, all you need to do is enter your name, the recipients mobile number and a short message of up to 160 characters into the form above, click send and then relax.

Providing you have entered a valid UK mobile number (sorry, our service doesn't work for international numbers but keep an eye on this as we have plans to expand) and that your message isn't too long (remember it's 160 characters maximum, not our limit but that's the limit imposed by the GSM protocol in relation to SMS) we'll get processing your request right away.

You can rely on Scratchr.org next time you need to send a free text online. Instructions for sending a text online are below.
