We are glad to inform FreeSMS users that we have developed a mobile friendly version of FreeSMS page. The existing FreeSMS page is customized for access via computers; it loads a lot of items that are not required for the SMS functionality. As mobile phones have much lower bandwidth in most cases, the existing FreeSMS page loads slowly.
The mobile friendly FreeSMS can now be accessed at: http://www.rangeenchara.com/mobile. Using this page, you can now send SMS to Nepal right from your cellphone no matter where you are (given that you have Internet service enabled in your cell-phone).
The mobile phone friendly page uses XHTML Mobile standard and detects whether the page is loaded in a mobile browser or not. If the page is accessed from a computer, the page redirects to the current FreeSMS page.
The mobile version requires you to use Rangeen Chara login as it does not support Facebook login. Those of you who have been using Facebook login will now need to create Rangeen Chara account and verify their account to use this service.
We hope that this will make FreeSMS even more useful to the community.
The world is sad to hear about the earthquake that caused severe damage to Haiti. There are a number of Nepali people in Haiti serving the United Nations Peace Keeping Mission. We know that many of you in Haiti use RangeenChara to send FreeSMS to Nepal and we want to help those of you in Haiti to get in touch with your family. Rangeen Chara is therefore offering FreeSMS premium account (10 SMS a day) for a month and free phone calls to Nepal.
To let us know that you are in Haiti, please go to the RangeenMap page, enter your e-mail address and press the submit button. We will upgrade your account and send you details to make calls as soon as possible.
Our best wishes to you from the entire Rangeen Chara family!
This time of the year is special to many of us as we are used to sit together with our family listening to Swasthani Brata Katha. Being away from the Nepal it is no more possible to enjoy the time with family but we can help you listen to the Swasthani Katha. We have uploaded audio version of the entire story in 30 different parts that you can now listen online. If your Internet connection is slow, please allow the player to buffer the audio before playing it.Swasthani Brata Katha Part 1
