This evening, BBN announces the re-introduction of the free sms messaging platform which was halted on March 1st, 2009 under BBN SMS Gateway. The difference is that, this time, BBN Free SMS Messenger is a separate solution from the BBN SMS Gateway that allows you to send the sms from your web account to mobile phones as if it were sent from a mobile phone to another.
The effect is that your friends, family members and colleagues who already saved your contact on their mobile will receive the sms as if it were sent from your phone and your name appears as saved in their phonebook registry. When your recipient types the reply it hits your phone – very much unlike the branded sms messaging that takes a branded name instead of your number.
The BBN Free SMS Messenger is hosted at the sub-domain http://freesms.bbnplace.com . For ease of access we have created a simpler domain that grants you easy access to the free sms service. The domain is http://www.bbnfreesms.com
So you no longer have to spend your call credit when sending a text to your friends, family or colleagues. The BBN free SMS Messenger delivers to all Nigerian GSM networks (MTN, Airtel, Etisalat, Glo) and the CDMAs alike.
It’s something to enjoy this weekend. And forever.
