I live in Canada, and I often find myself texting friends overseas (Europe, Asia). All of my carriers' plans are ripoffs, so i'm looking to see if there is a free alternative. I am using an iPhone 4, jailbroken ios 4.2.1. My plan includes 6gb data + 2500 texts (Canada only). Each international text is like 40 cents or whatever. I tried searching these forums and google, but it's so hard to narrow down your search when all you get are these small apps that offer free texting, but to the US only. My only requirements are that it IS possible to send from Canada to Europe, using data or whatnot, just so I dont get extra charges from my carrier. Also, i'm only looking at apps that send text msgs with MY number. I don't want my friends getting texts from a crazy 1800-123456789 number. Most of my friends also don't have smartphones, so I won't be able to use anything like Whats app, etc. Anyone?
