SMS/ TXT: How much do you spend for your mobile credits each month?

Mobile Phone SMS Addicts - My friends Lucy and Cora. I took this photo of them in UPLB early this year.

I do not spend much for texting/mobile phone calls since I switched to a prepaid line. I used to spend $40 a month when I was still using postpaid. Now, with a prepaid line, my mobile phone expenses have been cut to only around $8 a month. I always use free SMS services such as what Chikka offers, so that has a lot to do with my SMS budget :) How about you? How much does you spend for your personal SMS and calls? (Pleae exclude those that your company will pay for you.)

I spent 8-10$ a month .. in smsing and calling .. Its essential for me.. I mean .. to remain in contact with our friends we have to be in touch .. call them .. or sms them .. I don't use Chikka as it doesn't confirm the delivery of the report .. in my case .. it happened a lot !! .. Tell me do you know another site for free sms?

Chikka works fine with me and I haven't tried anything that works better. $8-10 is not absurd so you're probably not an addict :) I agree that it is really important to keep in touch with our family and friends. Cellphones are there for that purpose, among others. But quality, personal time, otherwise known as physical presence still works best. I'm digressing, I know. Can't help it. :)

i have postpaid plan which costs around $20 a month, it comes with a few minutes of free call and some hundreds of free sms... my dad pays the bills but i think i don't exceed my monthly free calls and sms since he hasn't warn me about anything yet...

I usually spend 100-300 per month on prepaid cellphone credits.
