Ways to save

International calls - Desktop computers, personal laptops, and smart phones with built in cameras—their popularity is growing and many of us already have one, or even all three. Skype is a software application that can be used on all three of these, granted that you are connected to the internet. You will be able to save on long distance and international calls, as well as connect with your loved ones or business partners on a more personal level.

Texting - Texting can also get pricey after you've reached your monthly limit, especially if you don't have an unlimited texting plan. Owning a smart phone or a device that can be connected to the internet has its huge advantages with finding alternative ways to communicate through text for free. Skype, WhatsApp, Kik, WeChat, or Google Hangouts are all applications that can help bypass a limited texting plan. These give more of a reason to ditch the landline.
