Nothing beats free, at least that is what some wise sage said some time ago. Why he said that I wouldn’t even know. I don’t even know if “a stolen bread tastes better” came before that but I can assure you that is somewhere in the bible (Proverbs 9:17).
The gist is that you can send free SMS to anyone in Nigeria from your Gmail inbox. Ok, she’s got to be on MTN, Starcomms (does anyone still use Starcomms? But if your chick is on Starcomms maybe a free SMS not bad after all), Visafone, Glo and Airtel. Although I think it is mightily lame to be syncing with a “chick” using a free SMS service unless you have a nerd cred to prove. By the way, proving a nerd cred to a woman is lame.
This is a hint – if you really want the free SMS, sign up to Gmail and read more from this page. (http://support.google.com/chat//bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=164876&rd=1). I found out that I can sync with others in places like Uganda, Senegal, Kazakhstan, Benin, etc. with the service. Don’t ask who and what I’m syncing with. At least I got that free.
