Today just found out that Gmail enabled free SMS (up to 50 messages) for Malaysia. This is applicable for Digi and Maxis telco customers for the moment.

How to get it?

Step 1: Enable Gmark from Gmail Lab. Go to “Mail Settings” > “Labs” > “SMS (text messaging) in Chat” > Turn on “enable”. 


 

Step 2: Go to Chat section and type in phone number with country code. Click “Send SMS”. A message box will pop-up, update the information there.
