News / goText is legacy, moving forward to Kontalk!
« on: March 12, 2015, 11:17:39 pm »
Hello everyone,
I'm writing this post to annouce you all and all new visitors of this website (and also all the bots, I know you have a soul!) that the registration of this forum is totally closed. All posts and users will remain active for historical reasons and for discussions, but I inform you that, even if working Services will remain active, this project is formally legacy we are moving forward to Kontalk

Communication is evolving fast and SMS are not so many import for consumers, so we are moving forward to Kontalk, an open source, secure, encrypted and reliable communication system based on XMPP protocol (sameone of Whatsapp, Line, etc) and thus open both in the client side than the server side, in the full spirit for goText.

Currently, only Android version is available, but iOS version is also coming soon and I suggest you to try it out the Android version from Google Play or F-Droid

Communication still matter for consumers, moving from SMS to chat and push notifications, with a new paradigma: where once SMS cost was the barrier that spread up solutions as goText in order to save money,  now instant communication and data privacy are the key value, moving forward to the Internet-of-Things and BigData. Someone is already spying you, who cares? We just care about the independency of the communication itself, that should be always free (as in freedom) and reliable.

We plan to join the Kontalk network with an XMPP node for the Kontalk federated server cluster and, damn, send SMS the way we know!!

Cheers and rock'n'roll,

Dear users,
I'd like to announce you the incoming beta version of goText. The project itself is quite stopped but a new Android version is coming with small features at the beginning, and trying to be full ongoing. The beta release will support the client-server style and the directly connection style due timely flat plan available in all over the world, and great WiFi coverage and support worldwide.

For the next feature, we expect to add the chat with some well-know protocol and public key cryptography, as well we want to re-spread the world awakening the asleeping goText project!

If you have website that you would like to use with the new Android beta client and you would like to be a tester, drop it here and we'll start coding and testing!

We are happy to inform your that our website and our services are again available after a DNS issue that made the website unreachable.
We are sorry for it, but now we are back!

Ciao a tutti,
abbiamo finalmente ripristinato la funzionalità di registrazione al forum la quale era precedentemente bloccata per via di un malfunzionamento nel servizio di invio email. In poche parole: goRegister! ;)

Website and misc / Forum registration now available
« on: February 08, 2012, 05:08:24 pm »
The forum registration is now available and working properly. It was disabled due an issue with mail server not fixed in time, now you can register to the forum and join our community again!

Website and misc / SSL Website Surfing now available
« on: October 20, 2011, 10:16:35 pm »
Hi all,
as you could seen we have done a server migration, we had and we have lots of work to do!
Anyway another good news is that now is possible to surf our website with SSL ( )
This is very important while using unsecure WiFi or untrusted networks where someone can sniff your traffic and steal your password.

Well gotext forum password isn't very crucial for you rlife, but in future you could use forum password for some authentication system we could put in our service so I strongly reccomend to use SSL while using unsecure WiFi ( Free Open HotSpot, unknown wireless, etc )

You can do this from our homepage clicking on SSL image on the right menu
Or you can just use the forum from this URL:

The certificate is currently valid and trusted, if you got some error is because some resources (as images, validators) are not shown in the SSL way but is not important, we are fixing it but the most important thing is that you can use your password in secure mode and write post in the same secure way. ( not so important website to get a mitm attack I think!  ;)  )

Good secure navigation  :)

La pagina è qui:

Il testo del messaggio è predefinito e non modificabile, sarà disponibile fino ad esaurimento SMS e fino alle 15:00

Fatene un buon uso..!

Ciao a tutti,
siamo lieti di annunciare il primo meeting internazionale su goText! Questa prima edizione, che non è stata molto pubblicizzata perchè rivolta principalmente agli sviluppatori, è anche un'occasione per un rilancio del progetto.

Il meeting avrà luogo nella mattinata del 21 a Milano, in occasione del Whymca 2011, e nella sera a Roma in qualche pub :)

Ciascun sviluppatore o utente interessato che vuole unirsi a noi in questa simpatica esperienza può farlo contattandoci.

Faremo un report sulle novità sorte dal meeting con eventuali foto sullo stesso!
