Skype to SMS public beta service launched with free SMS during trial
Posted on 27-Feb-2005 10:47. | Tags Filed under: News.



Connectotel has announced the launch of the public Beta test of its new 'Skype to SMS' service. This new service allows Skype users to send SMS text messages from within Skype Chat to any GSM mobile phone user.

"We launched our 'SMS to Skype' service just three weeks ago and have been very pleased with the positive feedback from Skype users. Now we are adding the next logical progression: 'Skype to SMS'", says Marcus Williamson from Connectotel.

Using this feature requires Skype users to start a Chat with the Skype user called smsgateway, then type +number message [message] from within the Skype Chat window to send a message to a GSM user.

The message is transmitted to Connectotel's 'Skype to SMS' gateway system and is passed from there to the GSM network.

The 'Skype to SMS' is available as a Beta test service for all users of Skype who have been authorized by Connectotel. There is no charge for the SMS messages sent, for the duration of the Beta test. The 'SMS to Skype' Beta test service is available free of charge to all users of Skype as well.
