By time you pay your cell phone bill each month, you feel broke. There are ways to make your bill a bit cheaper and to make sure you never go over your monthly usage. Want to know more?

The Apps

If you have an iPhone, you can go into the Apple app store and download a app so that you can text your friends for free. Yes, that is right. It’s completely free. One of the best apps to do so with is TextFree. You can also get TextFree with voice. What is this app and what does it allow you to do? When you download TextFree, you will make a username so you can text other TextFree users and you will get a free phone number that your friends can text you at. You will be able to send the same messages you would send if you were using your phone to text. You will be able to insert smiley faces and even send pictures to friends. If you want to use the voice features, you may have to pay a small amount, but it will save money in the long run. There are other apps aside from just TextFree as well. All you need to do is search for free texting apps in the app store and you will be able to select the one that you think will best suit your needs. The only thing you need to be able to use these free texting apps on your iPhone is a Wi-Fi connection. As long as you have one, you can text as much as you want and you won’t have to pay a cent. This is a great way to make sure you never go over your monthly usage and you don’t get zinged with expensive fees for doing so.
