2go for Mobile and PC – What Exactly is 2go?

What is 2go and how can I open an account?

Just in case you are asking that question, you are not alone, last time we previously wrote a brief article here on how you can open 2go account for free but felt that most people still do not know fully what 2go is so we’ve decided to do another post explaining what and what it’s all about

What Exactly is 2go?

2go is a mobile messenger which gives you the ability to communicate for free with your friends and family, another way to look at it is like your social network such as Facebook, etc which requires you to setup your profile, meet new people, talk to friends, share photos and other files, there are over 20 million users currently using this network.

It requires you “to have a network connection though which is being charged for by your network operator however this cost is small when compared to the cost of sending SMS”


Perhaps one big advantage of 2go which is probably the reason why it has become so popular with it’s 20 million users lies on the fact that it filters the people you chat with allowing you to meet only people within your defined location rather than mixing up everyone on the platform, this makes it easy for you to easily meet people in your college, university or workplace

2go also comes with a chat software which enables you to add your friends via phonebook, basically what it does is to scan your computer, it scans your phone contacts to find out if your contacts are also on 2go and if they are already on 2go, it sends out a friend request to them, once they accept your request, you’ll be able to chat and share files (photos) with them

It’s important to note here that while 2go is free, there’s also “2go Credits which gives you access to additional features in the application such as chat rooms, styles, star levels, competitions and games. You do not need 2go credits to chat to friends individually”

You can run 2go app on any phone that supports Java, you can run 2go on thesenetworks and manufacturers: Blackberry, Alcatel, Sony-Ericsson, HTC, LG, Imate, Mio, Motorola, NEC, Nokia, O2, Palm, Samsung, Qtek, Sagem, Sharp, Siemens, Vodafone as well as Android phones but if you are using Samsung SGH-X660 and the Samsung SGH-M600, you can’t run it, unfortunately 2go does not run on iPhone

Now that you’ve known this, the next question you might be asking is
