Heywire – Free SMS / Texting from your iPod Touch App

Ever wonder how you can text from your ipod touch just like from any regular celphone? Heywire is an iPod Touch / iPhone application that can let you send SMS / text to a regular mobile number any country in the world, including Philippines (kindly double check on their list of countries covered).

Anyhoo, I tested it by sendig a text to my Globe celphone number, and it worked. I received the SMS I sent via heywire. In short, it can be a way to send free text from your ipod touch or iphone to any mobile numbers in the Philippines — globe / tm, smart / tnt, sun cellular.

It has also an instant messaging feature, and also facebook chat. But I have’t used them.

Following was the test SMS / text I sent from Heywire iPod touch application to my Globe number.

  1. One other important area is that if you are a senior citizen, travel insurance regarding pensioners is something you
    should really consider. The old you are, the greater at risk you happen
    to be for allowing something awful happen to you while in most foreign countries.
    If you are not necessarily covered by quite a few comprehensive insurance policies, you could have a
    number of serious problems. Thanks for expressing your ideas
    on this website.

    i cant send a msg bacause it says that heywire only supports delivery of msgs to other heywire users in the country..

  14. Chinx

    for those who are asking, Heywire no longer support free messaging here in the philippines. Just recently, Heywire removed this country.

    Worldwide to any HeyWire Number is FREE.
    From HeyWire to any phone in USA, Canada & Caribbean is FREE
    With friends in the USA is FREE
    When traveling anywhere in the world, texting back to any USA, Canada & Caribbean is FREE
    When living in another country, texting back to any phone in USA, Canada & Caribbean is FREE

    *In all cases normal mobile data rates apply unless on Wifi
    **Friends get charged by mobile operators for text messaging to a +1 USA Phone Number

    How I use in heywire in Canada!
    I text philippines using heywire! On the signature option of heywire I put my smart roaming number for them to reply so it doesnt cost them alot of money.

    I’ll be going to the philippines next month! Can you guy reply how fast the 3g network is in the Philippines–

    I’m gonna use my IPHONE4 and put a smart sim card in it and have unlimited internet soo I can just use that to send heywire texts and receive regular sms text from SMART!

    to text philippines using heywire if you’re from North America
    +63 9.. … …. make sure to have the plus sign–
    It works on mine

    Let me know if any of you have tried that method overseas.

    how can i send a sms from my ipod touch with heywire to another ipod touch with heywire?? because i can send to mobile phones but it doesnt work to another ipods!
    thanksss

  21. killuarey

    I have a question?
    Does “Heywire” works without wifi connection?
    I am planning to buy an Ipod touch and I want to make sure if the SMS / Texting from your iPod Touch App works without any wifi connections.

  22. these are the things to remember:
    1. Sending txt message to local numbers: use the 09++ number and not +639 or 639+++ number
    2.. You need to have a wifi or 3g connection when sending text or calling through haywire. If you’re offline and tried to call, it will revert to your respective local carrier. (i’m not sure if it will be charged to your bill, but you can call off even offline)
    3. When texting international, do not use the international format with the 00 prefix. just the direct countrycode plus phone number.
    4. Use 0917 or 0918, 0922 etc and do not use +63 or 63 when calling here in the philippines

    • correction!!
      if you are texting in the philippines, use the 639**** do not include the + sign.

      If you are calling in the philippines, use 09*** ang not 639

        Fyi, Philippines is not covered anymore texting from US. Used to be. I think this happen just recently. I just used it on April 9, 2011. But 2 days after it doesn’t work anymore!! And when I checked the settings, sure enough Philippines is NOT included.

    Hi! Just found this site coz I was researching more about Haywire. But I just wanna comment that it works! My friend in the US and my father in law in Japan received my messages. Only question I have is, if they reply to me will they get billed or will they have to pay for it? THought you might know the answer. I know I’ve read somewhere that it’s free but just wanna make sure.. Thanks :)

    • only those with haywire account will not be billed.
      in your case, you will not be billed. But if they reply to your haywire account number, they will be billed because it will appear as if they are texting someone in the states because your haywire number is based in the US.
