Web to SMS is in many ways superior to sending a text message from your mobile phone directly:

  • You can send up to 600 characters over four text messages at once, allowing you to send email sized messages.

  • Typing on a computer keyboard is far more comfortable than battling with the tiny keypads on mobile phones.

  • The 160.com.au messenger gives you all the important features, such as address book, message history and delivery reports, and bulk send the same message to 1 or 1,000's of people at once.


  1. You must have an Internet connection (broadband and dial up modem supported).

How your text messages is sent

Step 1: You type your message and mobile numbers which it is to be delivered too. Upon hitting submit, your message is sent to the 160.com.au servers.

Step 2: You message is received by the 160.com.au server cluster, where the least cost route is calculated in addition to routing your message past any internal network issues which may delay delivery.

Step 3: You message passes via a secure socket layer through the internet to your recipient’s mobile network's SMSC. It is then processed for delivery to the handset.

Step 4: Your recipient’s network transmits the message through their infrastructure to the cell which contains the end mobile.

Step 5: The message is delivered to the mobile phone, playing their chosen message alert tone, be it a simple beep-beep or a Beachboys single. The entire process typically takes less than 15 seconds.
