What charges, if any, will my carrier charge me for using slyText?
You will not incur any charges from your wireless carrier for sending out or receiving text messages using slyText. However, if you turn SMS forwarding on, (so that you receive responses on your mobile phone in addition to the slyText website), your carrier will charge you what they normally do when you receive a text message on your mobile phone.
Will the person receiving my text messages be charged?
Yes, the person you send a text message to will be charged by their carrier as they normally would for receiving a text message. For carriers, a slyText text message is no different than receiving a text message directly from your mobile phone. So, depending on what type of text messaging plan they have, they will be charged accordingly.
