To start using this free text message service you’re first gonna have to register with your cellphone number and email address.
During registration a message with a verification code is gonna be sent to your number which you’ll then have to enter in order to finish the registration. Image above is the default gText menu, where you can see most of the features offered by this free mobile phone social network. Next to being able to send text messages for free, other interesting features that gText has to offer are:
- User profiles similar to other networks
- You can create user groups
- Send group emails
- Create private threads

Although all of the services above are also very useful, the one that probably interests people the most would be the fact that with gText you can send free text messages, to anyone who’s a member of the gText group, or individually if you select to create Private threads, same thing goes for images and files that you’re sharing over gText.

With gText you have more focus on groups, communication and collaboration between teams, but with the incorporation of mobile technologies. The thing that you need in order to start using gText is to create groups or networks of people that you know, which you will then later on use to send messages and files.
You can group people based on how you know them. Separate groups for people are a good idea because by doing things like this you can easily send messages or send photos to only your friends, if you for example arrange people into groups:
Or any other group that you can think of, which might be useful for you. Creating groups is easy, just click on the main menu located in the upper left corner under the logo, and select Create groups option. You can then start sending messages by clicking on the menu once again, only now selecting the Send message tab. Three ways of sending messages are supported.
- Group Text
