It does sound good when we hear “mobile roaming services”. It only means we can stay connected with our loved ones miles away without having to spend a lot for overseas calls.

But did you ever realize that when we avail these services, we get charged twice? Yes, both parties are charged for availing mobile roaming service.

For calls
The person you are calling is charged overseas rate approx Php80 per minute while the caller is charged the local rate.

SMS
The person sending messages is charged the local rate of Php1 per message but if the recipient replies using the number on roaming, the person gets charged of Php20 per message.

Of course, you won’t be satisfied if you just say hi and bye to your lovedone, isn’t it? Bottomline, you are also spending as much as when you call your family overseas.

Good thing there are SMS services that can now be used worldwide like freetext.net – the number one free SMS service around the world. All you got to do is sign up and create an account by filling up some details online, select the country where you at. If you have successfully signed up, an activated code will be sent to you right away, or you can just simply click the link given upon signing up. Once you are done, you can now log in to your account using the username and password that you have created while signing up.

But… before you are allowed to avail this free text message service, you got to share do a little work for them. You got to have credit balance in your account, and to earn that, just get yourself involved with the offers, competitions and surveys. These are found here.

Just follow these steps and you are good to go!

Non sweat job huh? Appropriate number of credits are shown below each banner. If you require more credit, I suggest that you participate on some gaming offers that they have available.

It won’t hurt to click at least one banner, anyhow you’ll get credits for that, and for every credit that you get, you’ll make someone happy back home. Just make sure that the PC you are using is protected, in case viruses decide to invade your system.

So, if you feel that availing of branded roaming services give a burden to your monthly budget, why not spend some of your free time clicking on some banners (as shown above), earn some credit and make someone smile back home. You won’t regret it. In fact, you’ll find yourself recommending if to your “kababayans” once you’ve tried it. It worth the click anyway!

That’s it and you are good to go!
