Free texts!

Waiting times, site errors, lots of advertising

I found cbfsms.com when I was trying to find a free text site months ago now. I use the site regularly, almost every day in fact - but that doesn't mean I like it. Here's the pros and cons of the site. ~~~ The Pros ~~~ The biggest pro you will ultimately see is the fact that it's completely free...

“Text messaging for free!”

It's free, delivery confirmation

lots of adverts, wait up to 10mins for some messag...

CBF stands for CardBoard Fish and is a website that offers a free worldwide SMS (text messaging) service. However, the site and service are paid for by placing heavy advertising on their site, including popups which you have to check the box to be willing to accept, in order to use the service...

Completely free, great if you've run out of credit

May not be 100% reliable, you can only send short ...

I recently read a review on Dooyoo totally slating this site. Whilst they had written it well and gave a great idea of the website from their perspective, I felt that some parts of this site were overlooked and completely underrated, so I felt compelled to write a review myself giving a more...

“A fish made of cardboard?”

published 29/03/2007

free text messages

not always reliable

Right so my fishy theme continues but this isnt an aquarium based product nor is it even vaguely related to the sea, it is in fact a free web based text messaging service. So as Ive mentioned in other reviews I have recently moved and my contract mobile doesn't get a signal so I'm having to use a...

Free texts message

Unreliable, slow, hit and miss on important dates

I first found this a couple of years ago and then lost it and only found it again last year. What is www.cbfsms.com? It's a place where you can send free text messages to any UK mobile number or if you want to be VIP, you can get cheap texts. I normally use this site when I've run out of my 10 O2...

-- The Free, The Slow and The Advertisements -- It must be cbfsms.com. Yes! The text messaging is free. BUT! You have to go through with all the other things that come along with the 'Free Text messages'. I am going to go through The Good And The Bad of cbfsms.com. -- Background Information...

Advertising, privacy, layout

~Introduction~ If I say to you 'Cardboard Fish', you'd think I'm crazy. Cardboard Fish or CBF is actually a large web portal. With news, #SMS#, really free logos and #tones#, email(now inactive), free chat and movie times. I think I came across this site in the Sunday Times a few years ago. In...

“A cardboard fish?”

published 25/01/2007

Free text messages

Doesn't always work, sometimes the service is down

If you are short of credit on your phone and want to save yourself some money, you can send a free SMS from the cardboard fish! It is quite handy, as I use it to send little football related updates to my mate while he's at work so I don't have to spend any money on them. There is quite a few...

This information is true on 7/7/2006 ***WHAT IS IT*** If you are like me and sometimes you need to get a message across without calling someone, then it can add up with text messaging costing 10p per text. I scanned the internet and most SMS (text messaging) sites require you to register your...

I first started using CBFSMS about three years ago when I never had any credit. It was great as I could text people for free and get replies to the site and then get another message to send.

“Cardboard Fish saves money!”

FREE TEXTS! Save you money if you use it a lot

Sometimes doesnt work

As saving money goes this has saved me quite a lot! Texting is quite expesnsive, especially if you have a girlfreind or boyfreind..or you just text a lot. This website lets you text from your computer for free...FREE! The downside is that you cant put as many letters as a normal text. Also it...

Well free SMS texts to UK networks always sound good but CBFSMS.com is a complete waste of time i can guarantee. I suppose it's alright if your sending a text and you don't expect a reply but otherwise there is no point in wasting your time. You might as well just top you mobile up that's what i...
