Free SMS to and from Iraq

We recently added SMS networks in Iraq (Orascom/OTI), but we need some help testing the service - we don't want to start charging you credits unless we know it works.

So, if you have friends are family located in Iraq, we're offering free SMS messages to Iraq until January 31st, 2005.

For details on this offer read our blog post.

World Wide ipipi

In addition to adding SMS networks in Iraq, we also added service to North Korea, which means iPiPi now has networks in every single country in the world. We're now a truly international SMS service, and we're pretty happy about that.

No matter where you need to send an SMS, we've got you covered.

What you NEED to know to receive SMS replies

ipipi users are always asking how to receive sms replies.

Here are some tips to help you:

1. A key to receiving an SMS reply? The gateway number - the phone number you call to send an SMS.

When you send your SMS message to a gateway number, the gateway number then sends your message to your friend. When your friend wants to reply to you, they respond by sending their SMS to the same gateway number.

See why the gateway number is so important?

Just like when you make a regular phone call on your cell phone, you have to enter a phone number when you send an SMS. (Hint: if you don't see a number on your screen, it probably isn't typed in.)

Make sure you and your friends have the gateway numbers you need to send and reply to SMS messages.

2. If you want to receive replies, remember to have your friends' phones as registered phones in your ipipi account so the gateway number knows where to deliver each sms. To register your friends' phones, click on the "registered devices" link when you login to

Give some love on Valentine's Day

It's January, which means next month is February, and you know what that means...Valentine's Day (February 14th).

The answer to keeping your special someone happy on this day? Little messages that show you care (plus some chocolate and flowers don't hurt!) Send an SMS poem or two and I guarantee, you'll receive lots of thanks.

Here are a few poems to get you started, written by some creative ipipi staff members. If you want to contribute some of your own poems, send them to me and I'll post them on our blog online.
