Re: send a text online

Hi

Regretfully no. O2 used to have a text service on the Web however that has recently ended.

There are some free sms systems on the Web that include adverts. Try www.cbfsms.com (I think they are still going but haven't checked for a long time). If not Google free sms.

And yet the page is still there and its third in the Google listings for the search query "send a text from the O2 website". 

 

Thats twenty minutes of my life I wont get back looking for a non existent service/link.

Re: send a text online

Must be 5 years now that it hasn't been available. Can you feed it back again @Toby?

I use MightyText linked to my phone from the laptop. Texts aren't free though, they come from your allowance though most tariffs are now unlimited texts.

Very useful. I get notifications for everything on the laptop and can dismiss the notifications on the phone.

All we can do is feedback - it's up to the web team to implement any changes.
