How to Send a Restricted Text

Sending an anonymous text is a great way to play a practical joke on a friend or reveal your true feelings to your crush. You can use a variety of restricted SMS text services available online, as well as through some smartphones' applications. The benefit of sending a restricted text online is that you can avoid worrying about data costs or download fees. Anonymous SMS websites allow you to send your message directly from the site for free. The only disadvantage is that the recipient cannot reply to your text message.

Step

Visit an anonymous text message website, such as Textforfree.net or Txtemnow.com.

Step

Enter the recipient's phone number and your desired message. Most sites limit your message to about 140 characters. You can add an alias or fake name to your text, if desired.

Step

Review the site terms and conditions, then click on "Send."
