If you own an iPhone or a smart phone, and you want to keep in touch around the world, for free, you might want to try the Viber app. A group of us have already downloaded it and are going to give it a try.
This is what Viber says about themselves:
Viber lets everyone in the world connect. Freely. More than 90 million Viber users call, text, and send photos worldwide—for free.
Viber is available for iPhone and other smartphones.
Viber is completely free with no advertising and we value your privacy.
New in Viber 2.2: you can now send free messages between groups of friends. Share photos, links and invite more friends to join.
