More Ways To Stay Connected
While sending a text without a cell phone is clever sending a text from a cell with out service has got to be smart,a Smartphone that is.. Google's Android & Apples IOS are just two of the smartphones today's technology offers. Paying a carrier for wireless services almost seems silly sense smartphones are smart and staying connected to what matters most is mainly done with wifi access. Surf the net over wifi to get that email to sms out. Download a text messaging app for your android in the google play store. If you have an Iphone, Ipod touch 3g and up or any of Apples IOS devices, hop over to the I tunes app store to download a texting application. Plus to many other ways for me to list all allowing people to keep up with the world helping people connect.
