Send Text Messages Internationally

– Online or from your Regular Phone

From mobile phone (US users only)

Do you live in the USA and want to text from your phone? Start using Rebtel SMS to save up to 65% on your international texts! After signing up, add the number of your friend that you want to message. We instantly create a local number for you to use instead and send it to your phone in an SMS. To make it easily accessible in the future, you can save it to your address book.

Sending an international text with Rebtel is just like sending any SMS. The only difference is that you send it to a cheap local number instead of an expensive international number. By giving you local numbers to SMS your friends, you can also start saving on your international texting, just like your friends with fancy smartphones. No internet connections or downloads are needed!

If you have a number of text messages included in your monthly carrier plan, messages sent to local Rebtel numbers are deducted from those. If not, you pay for the local message to your carrier. The international part of the text is charged at our cheap per-message rate to Rebtel.
