I was lucky to attended SMS GupShup Bloggers’ Night at Toro Resto and Bar in One McKinley Place at BGC, Taguig City last night with some tech bloggers on the table.

GupShup or Chitchat text messaging service is like a group chat on instant messaging. This is convenient way to text or sms your group of friends, office mates, even your basketball team.

Even text messaging is legacy, it will rock you on this SMS Reply-All service, because it enables you to send a message to multiple users at 1 TIME!  1 message SENT SIMULTANEOUSLY to MORE RECIPIENT. Keep your friends in the loop. It’s like the CC and Reply-All features on email. All you got to do is REPLY and your message goes to everyone in the group, how cool is that!

 DSC_0073India based SMS GupShup has partnered with three biggest mobile networks in the country: Globe Telecom, Smart Telecommunications, and Sun Cellular to introduce ‘Group Messaging’ for coordinating, collaborating, communicating with friends, workers, and family on SMS.

Referred to as “Reply All” for Globe & Smart subscribers and “Chatxt” for Sun Subscribers. This service allows users to coordinate, collaborate and communicate with up to 30 mobile numbers in a single group.
These users (group members) can reply to the SMS received that in turn goes to all members in the group. This makes ‘Reply-All’ or ‘Chatxt’ the latest and trendiest way to message within small and large groups. A parallel of this service on the web would be “reply all” and “cc” function of e-mail.
‘Chatxt’ & ‘Reply-All’ are conveniently priced at flat SMS cost of 1 peso per text with many other options for those who just can’t stop SMS’ing.
- For Globe and Smart users, a 20 pesos/day unlimited option can be activated by texting “UNLIDAY” to 2993.
- For Sun Cellular users, “Chatxt” is available complimentary for limited period. This can be activated by texting “Freeday” to 2993. They can also avail of the 30 group messages only for P5 by texting “BUY30” to 2993.


From football teams coordinating match schedules, student study groups finishing projects, a group of friends exchanging gossip to housewives discussing recipes Reply All / Chatxt has been a runaway success connecting people through basic SMS.
SMS GupShup has tied up with all the major telecom operators in India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Bahrain for the product before this launch in Philippines. The Company committed to collaborating with mobile networks in developing and introducing innovative features for SMS.
