TXTchat is for users over the age of 16 years only


How to TXTchat

  • Choose a nickname that's short and easy for others to remember, and send the command N <nickname> to register with TXTchat (eg N QTPIE)
  • Get a list of the different chat rooms you can join by sending the command RM. We've listed the current rooms below.
  • Join a chat room that takes your fancy by sending the command J <name of the chat room> (eg J HOOKUP) You'll then receive a list of who's in that room.
  • Start chatting by sending the TALK command T nickname of the person you want to chat with> eg T SPIKE
  • There's just one easy number to remember: send all your messages to 220, leaving space between the command and your message
  •  

What does it cost?

Just like TXT, it's 20 cents including GST for each message you send – and it's free to receive.
 

How do I stop it

If you want to take a break from chatting, use the SLEEP command. This will mean you won't receive any messages and others will receive a message saying you're 'sleeping'.

You can personalise this message like this: S Hi, I'm taking a break for a while. I'll chat with you again later.

When you fancy chatting again simply use the RETURN command, like this: R, and you'll be back in business to receive messages from others within TXTchat.

How do I leave TXTchat completely?

To leave TXTchat completely simply send the END command, like this: E to 220.

This will remove all your details from TXTchat so remember that if you want to re-enter a chatroom, you'll need to start again by choosing a new nickname.
