Have been trying to use the Free2Text from VF's website when I log into my account.

It has not worked for the past couple of weeks.

Does anyone know why?

Look forward to hearing from you!

Just checked it - working fine. I sometimes get 'Portlet error', but it works most of the time - like now (18:04 Friday 28 OCT).

Have you tried some other browsers? It occasionally flakes out on me but sometimes switching browsers works when repeated attempts in another don't. It's definitely one of those sites where you make sure to copy your text prior to submitting the form.

I tried both Google Chrome and Firefox. It was weird, one day it was working, the next it wasn't. And I did nothing my end for it to dysfunction.

I have got the Portlet error today - but prior to that there was no message. Just blank screen, then I would refresh and it would say "You have sent 0 texts"

And yes, I always copy my text's in case it has an error/problem.

Just odd it has worked no problems for me the last couple of years, but the last two weeks it just does not want to work.

The issue will be on the Vodafone side

Ok it is working in IE. But still not in Google Chrome.

I like using it in Google Chrome as it saves all the numbers in the number field, so when I start typing it, I can auto-complete it by selecting the number I want to text too.

At least I know it works in IE in the meantime, and I will wait for VF to fix the google chrome issue.
