How to send Free Text Messages to Rogers, Fido, Telus, Bell & Virgin Canada Cell Phones

There are 2 ways of sending your friends free SMS Text Messages to their cell phones. Note that some providers charge the receiver while others don’t. I know that if you use Rogers website to send the text message no one gets charged. i.e. it’s 100% free.

I was going to blog this as part of my Christmas countdown since it would be nice to be able to send all your friends a free text message wishing them a Merry Christmas but I figured it’s too generic and not just limited to that occasion.

Method 1: From the wireless carrier’s website

Each wireless company has a website from which you can send free Text Messages:

Method 2: By email. Yes email!

you can easily send emails to your friends’ cell phones directly from your email. You just need to know the number and the carrier of the recipient to start emailing them to their cell phone. Here is a list of the emails of different carriers. You need to replace the part before the “@” with your friend’s number.

  • Rogers Wireless: [10-digit phone number]@pcs.rogers.com
  • Fido: [10-digit phone number]@fido.ca
  • Telus: [10-digit phone number]@msg.telus.com
  • Bell Mobility: [10-digit phone number]@txt.bell.ca
  • Kudo Mobile: [10-digit phone number]@msg.koodomobile.com
  • MTS: [10-digit phone number]@text.mtsmobility.com
  • President’s Choice: [10-digit phone number]@txt.bell.ca
  • Sasktel: [10-digit phone number]@sms.sasktel.com
  • Solo: [10-digit phone number]@txt.bell.ca
  • Virgin: [10-digit phone number]@vmobile.ca

You need to replace the [10-digit phone number] with your friend’s number. For example, If your friend’s number was 613-123-4567 and their carrier was Rogers, you’d send an email to 6131234567@pcs.rogers.com
