Do some phone apps charge you for using them?
I recently downloaded an app for my smartphone. The thing is I'm pretty sure it said there was no charge for using it. It doesn't connect to the net when using it. However I have lost 7.00 of my credit. Is this suppose to happen.
Yes. some apps will charge you when using the services that they provide. I would read the small prints before downloading and installing an app on any smartphone.
You may also realise that if you are using your network to surf the web, and any of your apps are active and they connect to the net, you may soon find that your free bandwidth is eaten up by the app downloading or updating its features. So make sure that you either use unlimited bandwidth on your smartphone or use your wifi at home.
There are definitely tons of applications out there to choose from. Many of those applications will be free for you to download. However, there are also many applications out there that will charge for you to download them. From my experience with Blackberry, Android, and Windows Phones, whenever you download from their app world, or market, it will show if the application is free or if it has a charge associated with it. If it has a charge, then you will have to manually accept the charge. In some cases depending on the applications developer, you would have to provide a credit card to charge before you could download the app, or given the option to apply the charge of the app to the bill of your service provider. I hope this helped and answered your question!
typically if the app is facilitating a transaction, such as travel shopping, the app is free. It is enabling a process it is typically not free. But there are many exceptions to the rule of course :-)
Thanks for your advice. Have deleted the app and will read every part of the information in future on the app store.
check in the app permissions in the setting wether it is using services like data services, SMS and MMS services. If yes, uninstall it
