Airtel Subscriber?? Now schedule your SMS with Timer SMS

Airte-timer-sms  From past many months TATA DOCOMO is trying to give Airtel tough time but it seems that Airtel has now responded. Airtel has come up with TIMED SMS features (It will allow to schedule your SMS at future date and time). This service is somewhat similar to what TATA DOCOMO is offering. (Remember Sanjay Bafna’s Guide – TATA DOCOMO Timed SMS)

Airtel is offering this service at a much lower rate than what TATA DOCOMO is offering. Airtel charges Re. 1/SMS while TATA DOCOMO charges Rs. 3/SMS.

To send SMS at future date and time, you need to follow the following format i.e. Recipient’s mobile number <98XXXXXXXX> Date <DDMM> Time <HHMM> <YOUR Message> to 52233. E.g.9810098100 0801 0000 Happy Birthday.

In case you send a wrong format in terms of date/ time/ or number, then you will get a correction SMS with an example for the same. You will get a confirmation SMS when you schedule your message, as well as when the message is sent.
