Hey, I've found this site called FreebieSMS that says it offers free text messages to UK mobile phones, I've got a friend of mine in London, and I want to send him a text for his birthday, is it reliable? ; If you search under free sms in Google you'll see the site I'm talking about... please reply soon.
