So how does this work?
First you need to register..
To register, text FREE REG First name/Last name/Location/Age/Gender and sent it to 2625. Registration is FREE!
Example: FREE REG Ian/Oroceo/Quezon City/23/M
Once you are registered, you can now send a free message by texting
FREE <recipients mobile number> <message> to 2625.
Example: FREE 09175310329 Hi Ian! Try this one! It’s FREE! To 2625
Your recipient should read your message or else, a limit of 3 messages is set. So your recipient needs to read at least one of your message for you to be able to send 3 free text messages again. Also, to avoid overuse of this service, a sender will only be allowed 30 recipients in a day… this limit will be increased your recipients will read the message.
The receiver/recipient of the message will receive a notification along with a message number. To retrieve the message, text:
READ<message no.> to 2625.
For Example: READ1 to 2625
It is free to send, but you pay double when you read/retrieve the message. Receiver/Recipient gets charged with P2.50 for every message that you retrieve/read.
If you send a text message to your friends/contacts, they will receive a text notification that you sent him/her a text message. This notification is free of charge. On the other hand if your friend/contact retrieve/read your text message he/she will be charge of P2.50 for every retrieve/read message.
For Globe subscribers you can send free text messages even if you have a zero balance on your account. For Touch Mobile subscribers you should have one (1) peso maintaining balance to send free text messages.
I find this useful for prepiad subscribers like me who sometimes forgets that we’ve already ran out of load (call and sms credits) and needs to send a very important message. However, i think the 2.50 fee to retreive the message is a bit expensive considering the cost of texting is/should be cheap.
Oh, you can only use this service if you are a Globe or TM subscrber sending a message to a Globe or TM Subscriber. For smart subscribers, i think the ASK for LOAD promo is still up.
