Every time I get my AT&T bill, I brace myself for the additional charges I may have accrued from my month-long thumb frenzy with friends. Sure, I have a number of free texts built into my plan, but I do text a lot and even the short texts like, “Can’t wait!” or “Yep” definitely add up over the course of a month.
I recently heard about an app called Textfree with Voice that offers free texting and calling. I checked it out and
yes, it’s true.
You do get unlimited free texts and to start, 10 free
minutes of phone service. If you don’t want to keep adding more minutes
to your plan, and more money to your bill, this is a really good
can either “earn” them through in-app purchases (like getting 15 free
minutes for downloading a free partner app) or paying $1.99 for a 100
extra minutes. Still a much better deal than with your carrier.
you’re probably already used to. The one caveat (of course there’s a
big caveat) is that you’re assigned a new phone number. If you’re okay with
straddling two numbers, one for texting, then you can save some cash and text to your
heart’s content. -Jeana
