View Full Version : "free" cellular text messaging??

I just got an email ( generated "invite") to sign up for this service, via my Az sister.

Any experiences?

From what I can gather from their website, the user "earns" a certain number of "free" text msgs and beyond that the user's cell phone bill is charged - which doesn't sound all that "free" to me.

Apparently there is sw to download to one or both of (a) computer and (b) cell phone. The aspect of cell phone virii comes to mind, both re sw DL and re infected msgs (i.e., attachments to text msgs? do they work like that, have "attachments"?)

The "profile" is pretty ridiculous and of course their TOS requires "true and correct" profile info. (Profile info includes:
Height, weight, gender, "sexual orientation", age, country, hair/eye color, "body type" and "mood", Zodiac sign and "interests".)

(User must) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service's registration form (such information being the "Registration Data") and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof).

Hunt tho I did, darn if I could find the "pricing" info referred to as being available on their "Help" pages.

I don't really think this is something I'm interested in - but would appreciate info re any personal experiences w/this thing or related advisory info in general. The attachment here is a text doc of excerpts from their TOS, Privacy Policy, FAQ and "Help" pages.
