Skype texting is cheap
I text a lot to a friend in the Philippines and was wondering if anyone knows of a website or iOS app that offers free/discounted international texting (preferably to the Philippines). I currently use Google Voice for my international calls, however, they currently do not allow international texting. Thanks.

^ that one
viber is better imo. also allows for free intl calls and the audio quality beats everything else ive used.
LOL~! I just tried Google Translate out on what I wrote above. It is SO wrong:
"Constant, the jologs turn my phone. So you can price the iPhone or even non-prescription Android phone again!"
The REAL translation: "Dude, your phone sucks balls. Can't you get an iPhone or any Android phone for that matter?"
I actually met this guy at Narita Airport during a three day layover (we were both on buddy passes and the flights out of Narita were full) and now we just shoot the shit about travelling and how we can't wait to get out of the States. I'm currently living vicariously through him as I live in a Colorado mountain town with a guy to girl ratio of 10 to 1 (or at least it seems that way). It was either this or get an online thai girlfriend.
Plus, the crime rate in the Philippines is heaps higher than it is here in Bangkok. Don't let the 'bombs' here scare ye either. Shit happens in the Philippines too -- Even Manila gets hit every now and then by some schmuck extremists hailing from the south. I've had to deal with 2 scumbags in the first 3 months I was back there, after finishing my studies in Australia. Screw the place... Bangkok ain't perfect, but I'd choose it over Manila anytime.

Always the problem with women from any country that the Spaniards dumped their genetic material into - my major reason to avoid the Philippines. That, and their whole Jesus freakery...
