Stay with me.
Virgin Mobile have got together with SentForever, and they’ve provided a short code so you can send your text or MMS into the eternal abyss. In fact, they’re willing to send whatever – ode to Fido, a football chant, a marriage proposal. All you have to do is text it to 80995, and they’ll fire it up into the universe from Goonhilly Satellite Station, in the form of radiowaves.
From here, you can choose to track your missive, receiving alerts when it hits important milestones ie. the sun, pluto, alien life. And if it’s a gift, you can choose to pay extra to receive a certificate detailing exactly what was sent and when.
The text will cost you nothing but your normal rate and if you’re not a Virgin Mobile customer, you can still send your message by checking out SentForever.
