Smartphone IM Apps.

IM (Instant Messenger) Apps are available for free and as paid apps in the internet and they should be selected according to the brand and model of the Smartphone that you are using. For example Apps made for the iPhone-5 won't work with the iPhone-3GS model.

Prices of the Smartphone devices are coming down rapidly and now they are not listed in the luxury item list any more. Due to the low price, common people are buying and using them in mass number. They are looking for ways to dial local and international lines though the assistance of the IM Apps. In Sri Lanka cheap data plan and freely available Wi-Fi hotspots provide them the facility to make free or low price calls through their Smartphone Apps. Most of the phones are now coming with pre-installed Apps like Skype and Viber. All you have to do is to go to their program and create an account with them to use those Apps in your device. To make video calls your device must have front and rear cameras and to use your data plan you must have 3G connectivity.

If you had installed popular IM Apps, then there will be no extra charge to make calls to your family and friend. Also you can send and receive instant, video messages, image files, and in some latest handsets you can even stream movies too with your contacts.

If you buy credit from the IM providers like Skype, Magic Jack or NorceyTel, they will allow you to dial cheap priced international-calls to people who are not in the friend list. NorceyTel calls minutes never expire while you must check for Skype, Magic Jack and other IM, if they have any expiration dates.

If you have Skype account you are one of the luck person to have all these calling and messaging facilities in seconds. If you have an iPhone or Android phone, all you have to do is to go to iTunes or Google Play page and to find the Skype App and press the get Skype button. Then follow their instructions to make phone calls, text message sending and image sharing facility. Buying some credit from them using your credit card will solve your international call facility.

Likewise you can get their services in Wi-Fi enabled sets and latest Sony PSP too.

If you own any hand held gadget, then can directly go to your service providers' web site and access their App page and can download programs like Skype free of charge and can use it as long as you want.

Also you can buy special numbers in the internet country-wise and can integrate it with your mobile phone number. If you have plenty UK friends and if you are living in India then buy one UK number and integrate it within your cellular phone number. When your friends call that number they will make the call as a local one and your friends will be charged for the UK local call charge.
