    Hike messenger app allows you to send SMS to non Hike users for free.

      They allow only 24 SMSes.If you keep using Hike more,then it might get increased.

      24 for person to person or groups in hike?

      What usage ( opening app , sending hike to hike messages, inviting... ) determines allocation of free sms? Please support your reply quoting from hike

      Hike says that if you keep on using its app then you can get more free SMS and they didn't specify any particular activity.

      How do free hike2SMS messages work

      Go to Menu -->Settings --> SMS.There you can clearly see free SMS count.Hike is the only company that has started this offline messages.

      Thank you. Please tell that if the 24 free sms is not used in one month then user retains the unused sms in next month?

      I think there's no validity for free SMS that they provide.If you keep on using Hike,you'll keep on accumulating it.So,start using it.

      Do you mean that if the user does not send the 24 free sms per month , then the 24 sms would not reduce even after , say 3 months?

      Yes,I think that they are not imposing any time limit for consuming your free SMS limit.

    Pidgin (https://pidgin.im/) is can connect to almost anything and can send messages to SMS (see https://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/Protocol%20Specific%20Questions#CanIsendSMSmessages)

      Nice find. Thanks. Actually i am looking for app which coalesces app's stock messaging with SMS texts in one common group to reply-all, but it's okay if you do not further your research for such an app ( like what hike messenger does - group - message goes by hike to hike users and as free SMS to non-hike users in one common group through same app with reply all even by SMS at standard rates for non-app users )
