International SMS Terms
Below are GroupMe's international terms of service.
To accept these terms and begin using GroupMe, please reply #agree to your GroupMe welcome message.
International Text Messaging Fees
GroupMe is a free service provided by Mindless Dribble Inc., but any text messages sent/received are subject to standard text messaging rates determined by your mobile phone carrier. Additionally, text messages sent/received count towards a monthly quota as any other messages do. Any users, whether sending or receiving text messages with GroupMe, should be aware that standard text message rates may apply. Please be aware that texting charges can fluctuate internationally. Text messaging rates can normally be found by asking your provider.
Please also note that GroupMe currently uses US-based numbers. Every text message sent to or received from a GroupMe number will count as an international text message sent to or received from the United States. Please check your provider for the associated rates.
