Inexpensive text rates from US to the Philippines

Postby lizzzz » Thu Oct 14, 2010 11:45 pm

I want to communicate with my relatives in the Philippines constantly. I feel homesick and sometimes it affects my work. Thank God for the man who invented mobile phones! Hehehe. At least now we can communicate more easily. But it’s still expensive. Can someone advise me of a much cheaper way to send text messages to the Philippines?

You may use Yahoo! Messenger to send free text messages to your relatives here. Just tell them to reply to your text messages so you can continue sending them SMS. The charge is higher than regular SMS, but it's probably cheaper than regular international SMS.

I use Spidertext.com. Been using them for 3 yrs now. It’s one peso (or FREE if naka unlimited plan sila) for my family to text me and just 5 cents for me to send and rcv. Hope it helps.
