    Okay, here's the situation.

    I have a friend in the USA. I live in Canada. We want to text eachother for free. I have an iPhone 4, she has a T-Mobile Prism. We both have unlimited texting. She does not have Data, I have 6 GB of Data (so using data for me in order to text her will be no problemo!)

    What can we do in order to text eachother for free?

    I thought that if I download one of those free texting apps, I could text her for free, but then I thought she may be charged long-distance to text me back at the texting app.

    So, what can we do?

    Thanks in advance to any answers! :D

    If she has unlimited texting, then she doesn't need a data plan, which is separate.

    However her texting plan may or may not include international texting. That's something she can check with T-mobile.

    1. install hotspot shield & run it
    2. sign up for whistle phone app on iPhone & get US based phone #
    3. sign up for new USA based google account
    4. get google voice phone# and use whistle phone# to validate.
    5. download talk-a-tone app from app store
    6. sign into your google voice account
    7. text to your heart's content, you use talk-a-tone, she uses her regular mobile number
