SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— More competition is coming to the mobile phone market with a company called Text Now that offers a plan without any minutes.
Text Now charges $19 for baseline service, which includes 500 MB worth of data. But what happens if someone’s just using this service to make calls and send texts, could they still go over?
We’ve talked about “voice over internet.” Technically with that kind of service you’re using data. It sounds like a phone call, but you’re not using a phone network; it’s the internet. Text Now works in a similar fashion.
