You can buy credits (cheaper int'l rates than most carriers), but you can also have biteSMS just go through your carrier's plan. I have unlimited texts through AT&T, so that's the option I go with.I don't mind paying just always skeptical about paying for things without having them in hand, always cautious about being ripped off or having my payment messed up.
I was reading that you pay for credits within some of these SMS apps. How does that work with your current plan? (little confused about it)
You're absolutely right, Mindi!^ I don't see an option for message scheduling in iReal. I'll have to look into that later.
The credit system is for people that don't have great texting plans, or for people who have an iPhone supplied by their job, and want to circumvent SMS restrictions. International rates are another reason, as you mentioned. I've never used them. I just have biteSMS set to send through my mobile carrier.So would the credits mainly be for Int'l texts? Im going to download the trial of bite and see if I like it. Im able to use that as my only SMS app right? no more need for the default SMS?
Also, I can send and receive pics and vids with bite, correct?
