How to Send International SMS From India

Save

The short message service (SMS) is another name for text messaging. You may find when traveling in India with your wireless phone it is better to text friends and family back home rather than call them. This is because phone calls from India are expensive and can quickly add up. Text messaging from India to other countries does cost more than sending texts within the country, but it is an excellent way to update friends and family on what you are doing.

  • Select the text message feature on your phone.

  • Type in the message you would like to send. Make sure the message is less than 160 characters or you will receive a fee for two messages.

  • Select the phone number option.

  • Type in the country code (in the United States and Canada it is "1").

  • Type in the city code (if you are sending SMS to countries such as Japan).

  • Enter the rest of the number. Select "Send" to send your text message.
