Free SMS from UK to MAXIS

June 25, 2010 at 10:31 pm 3 comments

Sending ‘Text’ from UK to Malaysia network could be expensive. Each international text would cost us 20p (depending on network plan) which is about MYR1.00.

If you’re Maxis subscriber and have family and friends who are on Maxis Network e.g. 012 or 017, you could probably save some $$$ everyday and still be in touch. Please visit, and get yourself registered for free.  WebSMS users will be entitled to 3 free text per day.

Please note: In Malaysia we normally use SMS for text messaging e.g. I will SMS you later. But in the UK, we say “I will text you later”

Hope that’s help!

Question: If you’re in Malaysia and would like to text someone in the UK, what would be the rate for each text?
