"cannot register"

September 03, 2010  |  By erie910

 |  Version: Chikka Txt Messenger 4.03

Pros

Cannot use it

Cons

One must be a registered user, but when one clicks on the "Register Now" button, one is taken to a "page not found" error message.

Summary

This product is useless. One cannot register to use it, and it should not be available for download.

"Has a $.30 "tax" per text. Uninstalled it."

July 18, 2010  |  By onin5again

 |  Version: Chikka Txt Messenger 4.03

Pros

Nothing. Nothing at all.

Cons

Looked like a cheesy way to sneak 30 cents out of me every time I would try to text using my computer.

Summary

had the poterntial to be a rtipoff--the fact that they were planning to charge $.30/text was hidden until the moment you tried to use the service for the first time.

"A very good PC-to-mobile texting service"

June 06, 2010  |  By jafabs

 |  Version: Chikka Txt Messenger 4.03

Pros

With the web version, you can instantly send and receive messages, and as the previous reviews stated, you can send free text messages here and abroad. (Though perhaps this is fine since I'm from the Philippines)

Cons

Though sending and receiving txt msgs are free, if you replied on your mobile, you will be charged a fee BASED on your mobile service provider. Also, there had been some problems on sending msgs on the software that may cause delays for your messages

Summary

on chikka header "Still the best way to SEND free messages" It did not say free to REPLY to message

"If it charges a fee, it not free"

April 16, 2010  |  By mas2003

 |  Version: Chikka Txt Messenger 4.03

Pros

It seems some claims are not true because there is fees associated with the program it should be listed under trial-ware or something else that charges to use it.

Cons

It is not a freeware if it charges fee

Summary

I don't like it because it charges fees while it claims to be a freeware, though it may be free for some countries. This should be mentioned in their explanation of the software.

February 24, 2010  |  By vanderhog

"Not as simple as main stream IMs but it works just fine"

February 10, 2010  |  By hanozelle

 |  Version: Chikka Txt Messenger 4.03

Pros

Free txt messages for Philippine cell phone users. It supports all Philippine SIM cards.
Globe users can receive up to 10 messages for free without interuption.
Can send pics, to/from IMs or cell
Best known communication for Filipinos abroad!

Cons

Smart users are limited to 3 messages received per 90 mins. Unless the receiver replies back with a message.
A bit tricky at first but it gets easy to use.

Summary

For Filipinos abroad, it is the best and least expensive way to communicate with love ones back home. It is very inexpensive and sometimes free (the program is free itself) but that the message always gets to the receipient.

"The best I can find."

September 11, 2009  |  By gjj1056

 |  Version: Chikka Txt Messenger 4.03

Pros

Sends SMS messages without any lag. Able to receive SMS on your PC. Very light on the system resources. Free daily SMS which is more than other free services out there. It's FREE!

Cons

Program is ugly and server occasionally disconnects. Just a small and limited amount of free daily SMS (20-30 per network). No new version yet. SMS doesn't get through on some networks.

Summary

It's the best FREE SMS Service I could find. You can send SMS through chikka.com, and you could always download the desktop version if you don't want to open your browser.

I hope newer versions would bring better GUI and support to more networks. More daily free SMS would be nice too.

"A ploy to get your personal information"

July 23, 2009  |  By windbite

 |  Version: Chikka Txt Messenger 4.03

Pros

None to think of since it doesn't work!

Cons

This program will want everything from your telephone number and email to your name and birthdate. Not to mention, it doesn't work! You will also get tons of spam on your phone and email.

Summary

This program will want everything from your telephone number and email to your name and birthdate. Not to mention, it doesn't work! You will also get tons of spam on your phone and email.
