our FAQs: Sending SMS messages from your phone
popular demand, we're re-publishing our instructions on how
to send an international SMS from your mobile phone. These
instructions are also available here.
Bookmark this page if you find yourself needing the instructions
over and over again.
an SMS message is easy with ipipi.com, but you do have to
know a few things:
one: First, do you have any credits in your account?
If you don't have credits, you don't have SMS, so purchase
two: Register your phone. You need to tell ipipi.com
that your phone exists. To do this, you need to register your
phone with our system. Go here
for detailed instructions.
three: Set up your address book. ipipi.com needs
to know how to find your friends. To do this, you need to
enter your friends' phone numbers into your ipipi.com address
book. Go here for details on creating address book entries.
important step to remember when building your address book
is the "nickname" field. Make sure you pick a short
and easy to remember nickname for each entry. Usually initials
are a good idea (for example, my friend "Johnny Message"
has the nickname "jm" in my address book). Why is
this important, you ask? Well...
four: Send your message. When you send your SMS message,
you're actually doing several things at the same time: 1.
Talking to ipipi.com, 2. Talking to the SMS network, and 3.
Talking to your friend. How do you do all this at the same
time? You need to say WHAT kind of message you're sending,
and WHO you're sending it to.
EVERY message, you need to include the following two things
before texting your message:
"s" (without the quotation marks)
2. your friend's nickname
"s" is telling ipipi.com WHAT kind of message you
want to send -- an "SMS" message. Entering your
friend's nickname tells iPiPi.com WHO you want to send it
example. If I'm sending a message to Johnny Message, I will
"s jm Hey Johnny. What time is the movie tonight?"
"jm" = Johnny's nickname in my address book
to include a space between each text entry.
it's about WHAT (an SMS message) and WHO (your friend's nickname).
Do this for every message you send and you'll always be in
touch with your friends around the world.
