Disadvantages Delay in Sending Some Messages!
As a student I'm constantly trying to scrimp and save my pennies wherever I can - I'm continually told that every little helps, to choose the cheaper product in the supermarket and to buy just one pair of shoes rather than three on a shopping spree! I must admit I find it hard – I just can’t resist going to Marks and Spencers for my food and buying that gorgeous top in Warehouse rather than shopping somewhere a little more within my budget – in all honesty I’m practically giving up in the shopping field but one area I’ve managed to cut back my expenditure is on my phone bill!I’ve got an O2 Online contract which costs me £25 a month and is most generous with the free call time and text messages – but not quite generous enough for me who, during the month of August last summer, managed to send a whopping 721 text messages on my phone, 221 over the designated free text messages! Luckily one of my close friends was standing nearby with helpful advice on how I could persuade my dad not to talk my mobile off me!
And so there is the story of how I discovered this site www.fonetastic.com a little gem in the world of text message addicts!** Fonetastic Homepage**
Now I warn you, the homepage is quite cluttered and upon first gaze you might be tempted to revert back to the simplicity offered by sending a text message off your phone - but resist! Along the top of the page are the main menus and facilities offered by Fonetastic which will be discussed below.On the left hand side of the page are the menus again, an option to gain 55 free SMS credits by referring your friends and an advertising banner. On the right hand side of the page are the top credit winners (top 5) listed as well as more advertising banners. The main bulk of the page is the centre part which offers boxed links to the menus along the top of the page again.
It’s fairly cluttered in a sense but once you’ve been there once or twice you’ll learn to locate easily what it is you’re looking for. It loads instantly (with a fast connection) and all links are equally as quick to load so no problems on the technical side of things at all!** Menus **
~ Home - this is the first menu on offer and will merely take you back to the homepage which is discussed above. You do not need to go back to the homepage to access different areas of the site as they are all listed along the top tool bar on every page.~ SMS - this is my most visited area of the site and in order to access this you need to register with Fontastic and log a username and password with them (for more information on opening an account please see below). Once you've registered you can merely enter your username and password and be transported to the SMS screen. At the top you're told how many SMS credits you have left (you can earn this by registering with various partner sites and referring friends) and also how many Daily Free SMS credits you have left (you get 15 a day - that's 15 free texts a day)! Below this is a box for writing your message which can be up to 130 characters and then you can choose where the SMS message is sent from, either Fonetastic, your personalised Fonetastic number with an inbox to recieve replies or your mobile number.
