Since I have been trying to find different ways to cut my mobile phone bill. I’ve turned using my computer to initiate phone calls or by using Skype, Textfree with Voice, or Yahoo Messenger to make phone calls using WiFi on my cell phone. Here are some of the tools I use, I explain them further in a blog post at GenJuice called How to Communicate Like Kim Kardashian.
Video & Voice Calls
- Google Talk Plug-in for Gmail
- Yahoo Messenger
In addition to video calls from your computer, Yahoo released a new iphone app that lets users with the front facing camera make video calls with their phones to other Yahoo Messenger users. Yahoo Messenger users who do not have a front facing camera can make phone calls using wifi or send text messages from their phones.
- Textfree (iphone app)
You can select a phone number so to send and receive text messages with any mobile phone unlike their competitors which rely on the other person having the same app.
