    Hi,

    I was wondering if all of the instant messaging applications do not charge each instant message as a text message? As in, the Apollo app and mobile chat, etc.

    Thank for any reply

    No charges for Apollo, totally different system than SMS texting.

    Those applications do not use your text messages.
    They use the data plan on the phone.

    What about a free solution that ties into the SMS system? As in, I could send from the app and it would appear as a text message on my friends' phones.

    I know you can sign in with an AOL account and send a SMS to someone in the US who's on AT&T for sure (not sure for other carriers) by sending it to their phone number (ie. +12125554444). I know this doesn't work for Canadian numbers though.
