Sending one SMS will cost you 1 point. You earn points by clicking an email ads that they send you periodically (usually once a day or every several days). You need to send the SMS from their site only.

MotoCrew (motocrew.com.au – links no longer working)
Gives you 50 free SMSes weekly. However, if there are too many people sending SMSes at a given time, you need to wait for half an hour for the “pool” to be refreshed/emptied. Address Book: Yes, but only allows to save 10 numbers. Ads: Yes (the sender is from ‘Motocrew’) Sender: “Motocrew”, so the SMS can’t be replied to your number directly.
After logging in, type in a number, your message, and then send. Fast and easy! I’m not sure what’s the limit of daily SMS that you can send per day, although I’ve heard it’s 5 SMS per number.
Address Book: No address book feature yet. Ads: Yes (link to their site at the end of your SMS) Sender: Your mobile number.
Conclusionusually use FreeSMSMate until I’ve wasted all of the SMS, and then start using the other ones. With SMSPup, you can just accumulate the points (by receiving the ads email and clicking them to get 1 point) until you need extra SMSes.Check out my blog about Letxt as well here (they offer free 5 SMS per day (and not just to Australian mobile numbers).
