Re: Installed and Dumped
Why use anything else really?
Cost - Not everyone has a contract with inclusive “free” SMS
International - Even with a contract, texting to international numbers can cost (if it works at all – in my personal experience I have had problems with international SMS)
International – Same deal when you yourself are abroad sending back home
Sending media - Even with a contract, sending a photo, for example (MMS) can cost
Group messages - SMS can send to multiple people at once but they all receive the message individually, I think.
Yes, there are things like email to get around these limitations, but an app that is free or has limited cost and can be used “free” (yes, you might be paying for the data connection/wifi) is much more appealing.
