I need help. My girlfriend is going to Florida for 2 weeks tomorrow and i need a way to text her for free. I signed up for Skype and everything but i dont think my parents will top it up for me. So i need help with any suggestions.

Like what do i do about the whole +1 area code thing? What websites will allow free texts? What ones go from country to country?

Please nobody be gay about this. Im asking nicely for help and i hope i dont the usual response i get when i make a thread.

Google something like 'free texting websites international' and hope you get lucky. Best you can do.

Or you could just get over 2 weeks, it's not that long :/.

I'd guess that your texts would cost about £1 a shot to america though (Complete guess)

If she has access to a computer, Skype is free...

She might be able to get to a computer but we havent been going out for long and i want to enjoy her holiday and stuff, not sat by a computer talking to me. I just want to be able to stay in contact and stuff so she can tell me like how she is and stuff.

I know if you are with Orange you can send them from their website, but you are limited to 30 freebies per month....

Text's are cheap anyway, can't you just send them from your phone?
#8
Contact your service provider and see what they can do. (if you have a phone that is)
#9
Lol, don't worry about contacting her. You will live and it'll be even better when you see her after not contacting her for two weeks. I don't know how to explain that but it's true

2weeks? a little clingy?

if you both have mobiles, make sure you have credit, make the most of any txt offers you have, make sure you're on each others top friends if you have that option from your provider, and spend a little bit on each other, texting doesn't cost too much more, it might be 50p anstead of 5p a txt...woop dee doo, you aren't going to do loads of texting when you want her to enjoy the holiday anyway so.

I know what you mean about it will be better when she gets back if we dont speak at all but i will just get worried and paranoid that her plane has crashed or she has been killed or drowned in a pool or something stupid. I just want to keep in touch with my baby

Yeah she has a phone and everything but im just thinking about costs and stuff. The most credit im going to be able to get is £15 probally and im guess each text would be about £1 of that

bear in mind it costs to receive texts abroad.

so even if it's free for you it may drain her credit.

Or you just go with an unlimited data phone. Or you could use a messenger service on your phone... mine does this anyway and I know alot of the newer phones do it as well.

Im not asking for all the nobs in the pit to start commenting on if im clingy or not. Funnily enough, its not clingy i just care about my girlfriend. Unlike the 90% of the pit which is too busy fapping over pears and Rick Astley to get one

EDIT: So is anyone going to suggest a website they know or give me prices on text abroad?

The cost of texts abroad varies wildly with service provider, look it up yourself on your providers website, it's not freakin hard.

At a guess, 35p a text.
#25
O2 is retarded and wont show the prices, only from another country to England and only on pay monthly but im on pay as you go
#27
Download AIM and have it text her cell phone.

No matter what it is only going to cost her money, because she will be running on America's network. It would be free for you to text her. Just have her get on a computer and use a messaging service.

Alot of service providers do "international bolt-on's" if you sign up for one then the text messages are usually about the price of a normal one.

Alternatively theres Skype, but I'm assuming she won't have internet over there?


yep. we ignorant, fat americans have not yet discovered this mystery of the universe dubbed 'the internets'. florida is generally just swamp. and then there's some beach. and people living in shacks throughout said areas. i wouldn't know that though. due to lack of transportation we rely on horse and carriage and i never been 50 miles from my home before. but only the rich folks can afford that anwyay. never been to florida myself. but i read it in a book. or had the information dictated to me slowly because i cannot read.

The magic writing wall seems to be in a bad mood again, better get the ointment

On a more helpful note, most of the free text sites should work internationally, as you don't add the +1 thing if your phoning her mobile (unless your talking about her buying one out there on an American network), her number will still be the same as it is over here, if that makes sense

I don't get why everyone's giving you **** about talking to her while she's gone. My girlfriend just left to Greece for 3 weeks and if I wasn't able to call her everyday and talk for 2 hours (which we've been able to do thank god) I'd die!
Our relationship lives on communication, if we stopped talking I'd feel like ****!
I'm sure you feel the same way so I know what you're going through!
Just set up a time that she'll be home and buy a calling card (they shouldn't be too bad, the ones I buy for Greece are like 5 bucks for 200 minutes).

Haha, yeah I guess that's probably true. We've been together for about 8 months is all. But still, not communicating for a long time would be pretty strange.
