Free text messages are one thing, but it’s another thing altogether when you can send that SMS without the recipient knowing where or who it came from. That day has arrived with the launch of AnonTxt.com. You can enter any alias you like — Santa Claus may be popular around this time of year — and launch anonymous words of kindness or strangeness to just about any cell phone (in North America, presumably).
The catch, however, is that the person getting the text on the other end will see that you’re cheating the system: “anontxt” is tacked on to the sender’s name, but you can still partake in some New Year’s hilarity when you tell your pal that you know what he did last summer. If you really want to be anonymous, you could probably just head on over to the appropriate service provider’s site to send your spoof-tastic SMS.
