Text messages - Send SMS - International Messaging Service

TEXT MESSAGING SERVICE (ipipi, the Service) is provided by Upside Wireless Inc. located at #503-535 Thurlow Street, Vancouver, BC, V6E 3L2, Canada

When you sign up with our Service, you automatically confirm that you accept all terms in this agreement. You can sign up with ipipi irrespective of where you live in the world and your age. Please observe however, that underage persons sometimes need consent from parents. You always act as a private person and only represent yourself.

ipipi supplies you with a set of services that allow you to send and receive text messages to and from almost any network in the world. This is NOT A FREE SERVICE. All SMS messages (one SMS = one credit) require one credit in order to be processed. When you create a new account we will credit it with a few free SMS credits so that you can evaluate our service. Please note that these free evaluation credits are available to most, but NOT all global networks.
As part of your account you also agree to receive 1-2 newsletters from our company each month. PAID users can opt-out from this program on the Personal Info screen of their accounts.

When you register, we may ask you to state your address, country of residence, language of choice and some additional data about you and or you personal interests. If you chose to register your name as part of your email address or elsewhere, you consequently agree to that your name and other information you have provided will be stored and processed in the ipipi database. 

The international SMS network is built on the "best effort" principle. This means that delivery of messages cannot be guaranteed. Over 5 years in business we have over 99% successful delivery rate where over 90% of messages are delivered within few minutes (often seconds). We cannot, however, guarantee delivery of messages and we do not refund credits for unsuccessful messages.

Due to significant variations in phone capabilities, service provider capabilities and restrictions on the delivery and access some service providers impose we are unable to guarantee delivery or ability for your recipients to access picture messages. No refunds will be issued under any circumstances. Before you send picture messages please note that:

  • The recipient’s phone must be capable and setup to accept picture messages, the phone must be able to receive and correctly interpret WAP pages.
  • The recipient of the message must have setup the handset with his/her service provider prior to your sending the message.

The information that you state to us when you register must be updated, correct and complete. Please note that accounts with invalid information (for example e-mail account, name or country) may be deleted as our sole discretion, together with all associated information. It is your responsibility to make sure that your information is up-to-date.

Subscription accounts enable account holders to send and receive SMS messages at preferential terms. The payment for a subscription is executed monthly on the day the subscriber first joined the program. Subscriptions can be cancelled under the following terms:

  1. Subscription privileges stop at the time of cancellation
  2. No refunds for subscriptions will be issued under any circumstances

The ability to send and receive SMS messages is subject to subscriber contracts, roaming agreements and billing configuration. Due to the nature of the global SMS network the roaming and interoperability status, as well as our ability to deliver your messages to or from any network may change without notice.

When you have received your email address and your password, you can send a few test SMS messages to a limited number of networks (this limitation is removed for PREPAID users). You may use up to 1 MB of memory for your account. It is your responsibility to manage and periodically empty your mailbox.  If your account exceeds 1 MB our automated cleanup service will delete part of your messages starting with the oldest ones. Also, automated cleanup process deletes all messages of evaluation accounts older than 14 days.   Your account may also be prevented from receiving new messages while its size exceeds the limit.  Should you want to exceed this limit and stop receiving promotional messages you can open a pre-paid account.  If you are interested in this option please review available information on SMS account types. If you choose to recommend your friends to ipipi, you will receive some credits when they sign up and some additional bonus credits when they become prepaid. If you refer friends from an evaluation account, these new credits will be additional test credits; you will be unable to send custom personalized messages until you become a paid user.

The address and email box supplied by ipipi must not be used for criminal purposes or in a way that disturbs other users or intrudes on other persons or on their property. You are responsible for ensuring that the information you provide using our services is legal and in accordance with normal morals and the general ethics which apply on the Internet.
