So I have a BBRY BOLD, and the basic phone through Verizon and unlimited data plan through Blackberry. Naturally, I never elected the world plan, because I didn't think I needed it. But I now have a friend from Tasmania, and would like to know the best way to send her a text message without incurring additional charges, and without having to add additional services. I have her Tasmanian Mobile number, but not her email, so I cannot email her. Suggestions?
I don't suppose she has a BlackBerry, does she? If she did, you could BBM to your heart's content for free.
Otherwise, here's a link that explains rates and plan options:
Overseas texting can be tricky and expensive. I've got a friend in Ireland and it is hit or miss and about .10 cents a pop. As was stated, BBM is ideal if you both have BB's or one of the many other mobile IM programs like Google Talk, Aim, etc.
