So I don’t know about you but a big part of our budget is our cell phones. And I try to limit the cost first by using texts instead of minutes. But of course I try to save there too by not having an unlimited plan and keeping my text messages in check with a limited texting plan. Here are two apps I use to help:
A coworker clued me in to this app. Each participant signs up for the app and then unlimited text messages are sent through your data plan, not your text message plan. The trick is getting people to buy into it but if you can, it will save both of you text messages.
I tried this app several months ago and it was awful! It was a faux-walkie-talkie system. The quality was bad and delayed. However, they’ve switched it up so your whole audio message is recorded and then sent at once to the recipient. You are alerted just like a text message that it’s there. Again, both parties have to sign up. I love this because there are many times I’m driving and can’t type a text message or it’s just too much to say. Or sometimes you just need someone to hear your tone of voice as well as the message. The girls and I love to just say “hey” all together when Scott is at work.
What other apps do you use to save money on your cell phone bill?
