    Default Best Way to text(sms) without paying ?
    Hi , i'm currently searching for the best way to text people without using the sms app. because i don't have any texting package or something like that. so i have to pay 15cents each. but on the other hand i have a data plan.

    Regards and Thank you for your help.

    You could try bitesms, which is 10 cents a piece normally; it becomes about 1 cent cheaper per sms if you buy their $50 package.

    aim is FREE, and it uses the address book from your computer!

    make a buddy like "+18005551212" and it would go to the cell phone (800)555-1212 as an SMS.

    in aim (or aol or iChat or on Instant Messenger - AIM - Instant Message Your Online Buddies for Free - AIM ) you create a buddy.

    instead of an aol/aim name you use "+18005551212" (instead of "billy22934" )

    it couldn't be easier. sending is great... receiving is not as nice! you have to be logged on the iPhone or your home computer. I am often on BOTH with the same login.

    i would use aim.. if your on 1.1.4 you can recieve better cos jailbroken apps run in the background.. agile mobile worked almost flawlessly for me i highly reccomend it on 1.1.4 or wait till its ported to 2.0
