CUT THE COST OF TEX­TING ABROAD

The Jewish Chronicle - - BUSINESS -

HERE is a quick tip for any­one with a T-Mo­bile or O2 phone who wants to text abroad. Rather bizarrely, it is ac­tu­ally cheaper to send a pic­ture mes­sage than a reg­u­lar text mes­sage on th­ese net­works. For ex­am­ple, on T-Mo­bile, send­ing a text mes­sage from zone 2 coun­tries (most of Europe) costs 40 pence, where as a pic­ture mes­sage costs 20 pence. On O2, a text mes­sage can cost up to 49 pence, and a pic­ture mes­sage 25 pence. What if you don’t want to send a pic­ture? It doesn’t mat­ter. You don’t ac­tu­ally need a pic­ture to send a pic­ture mes­sage. Send­ing a pic­ture mes­sage is just a dif­fer­ent type of file ac­cord­ing to the phone com­pany. So, just write your mes­sage in the pic­ture mes­sage and you will save your­self some money. Easy as that.
