Google Australia now sending GMail invites via SMS

by Jeremy on January 1, 2006

GMail has been a great tool I’ve used to help keep track of alot of my work e-mails, marketing articles, details on promotional products etc. and have them indexed by a powerful search algorithm – and access them anywhere thanks to Google :)

Forwarding useful resources, articles, links to my GMail account has proven to be an effective archive/record keeping tool for me.

If you haven’t been lucky enough to receive an invite to the GMail service (I’m saying lucky – but i’m sure you know someone by now who has GMail and is willing to invite you) you can now receive invites directly from the mothership itself.

A text link at the bottom of the search engines home page reads:

Advanced spam filter, instant search, 2.6GB. Get Google Mail.

Visit to get your invite. Simply click the link at the bottom of the page, and enter your mobile phone number, and Google will SMS your invitation code. Cool Bananas!

P.S. I can see alot of people signing up friends for a joke.. just to see Google as the SMS sender on their mobile phone displays 😉
