(utilizes some available memory) SAVE MONEY with RealNetwork: "iRealNetwork is a new service bringing SMS to your iPhone as you are used to but MUCH CHEAPER. With 8 EuroCents per SMS it is a great deal for national SMS and unbeatable for international SMS. A common rate for int. SMS is 39 EuroCent which is 500% of our rate. It is in the nature of SMS services that we cannot support every destination in the world - therefore it is our policy to REFUND any Credit purchases which cannot be used because our service doesn't support the destination country or network you require. We are supporting over 570 networks worldwide though. So try it out and save your money!" Have them handy for those of you that are only allotted a certain number of SMS messages a month! Why pay overage charges for SMS ala cart when you can just switch over to the iRealNetwork at usually a cheaper rate than what your carrier offers!
