    Don't wanna sound ssilly but, presumably you need internet connection for the app, right? What's wrong with using the mail app?

    Not being difficult, just genuinely curious :)
     
  3. don't know if I would use this Timbo if it only works between other people with Ping! :) nice find though :D

    depends on your tarrif, will be extra use for my gf as she's abroad a lot when you text from abroad it takes 5 from your bundle, so she can save her texts for when she's abroad by using ping here.

    Yeah and it's brilliant because it's basically the text application but to anyone for free.

    Yeah but the main drawback is the iPhone-iPhone thing. I don't have any mates with an iPhone so ping is all but useless to me in that sense. If my missus had an iPhone I'd laughing :(

    it goes to blackberry and ipod touch too...

    but it's great when you meet new people, easy than taking a phone number.

    Surprised that o2 or whoever would allow that, seems to be cutting a bit of their potential revenue down.

    apple are the ones who control apps (they have MASSIVE guidelines and one app is never just accepted instantly, they all have to be checkedd and trialed and all this)

    it's essentially "not texting" - it's closer to email, but with notifications on top of push notifications.

    o2 wouldn't stand a chance.

    your right Fred, I guess they're not that fussed on texts, but they do block things, like for example you can only use skype when on wifi, otherwise you'd never need to make "calls"

    but it's not texts tho because it's not to everyone and it's not texting, basically!
