    So, hold on - You're asking if there is an application in the Apple app store which enables you to send txt messages freely? If you are, well there is no such thing. But, if you're asking for an app other than the standard txt message app that comes standard with the iPhone, you're also out of luck.

    The latest version of Skype (free) can send SMS, but you'll need a Skype Out account (not free).

    Actually, there are a few. I just did a search for "Free SMS" on the Australian App store, and maybe half a dozen came up, and some with all good ratings and comments.

    Exactly. There are programs at the Australian AppleStore which does that. Quite many choices actually. All without ongoing cost it seems.

    Just want to add that most of these apps don't work. So, don't waste your money.

    Thanks, but the apps that claim to send FREE SMSs are not free.
    While Skype App is free, sending SMSs is not FREE.

    Feel FREE to quote all the FREEs again.
