The few cents it costs to send an SMS message on your cell phone using your cell phone service provider can add up quickly when you send lots of text on a plan that does not provide free unlimited text messages. By avoiding the use of your cell phone service provider to send text messages you can save boatloads and still enjoy conversation with friends and family. Texting over a reliable Wi-Fi connection is a suitable solution to avoid costly texting to an iPhone.
