Clark Howard: Free texting apps
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Please tell me you're not wasting your money by paying your cell phone provider for text messaging.
Did you know the big cell phone carriers, the contract carriers, still charge as much as $20-$25 a month for you to have texting on your plan?
Save your money, because now you can use smart apps that allow you to text for free. However, this isn't texting like you're used to; these are really, really, really fancy texting functions.
People are signing up around the world in the billions for these new plans and they're causing heartache for the cell phone carrier.
Well, I want your wallet to smile on you; I don't care about the heartache of the cell phone company.
If you're still paying for text messaging, go look at all the choices for doing it for free. I have a full list for you on my website.
