    I need to text someone abroad, quite regularly, but they don't have a huge data allowance. I was wondering, if I buy one of those international numbers from an app, would it be sufficient enough? I would be texting through the app, and they would be texting back like normal.

    If they don't have the data allowance, then by you using a service won't change how they are texting. I would recommend that you both use a service, such as Hangouts, to communicate. It doesn't use very much data as long as there are no images being sent between each other.

    Ah, thanks. I've used the services in the past but via pc so I wasn't sure.

    We speak on Kik and she has WhatsApp, I thought they were good enough but she complains about those too... I have Hangouts, never actually used before.

    Texting doesn't use data (notmal texting, like the Messeging app). ANY other method uses data, and about the same amount, 1 byte per character for the Latin alphabet (this one we're using now), 2 bytes per character for Unicode.

    This was the app I was thinking of using.

    Sucks cause I need to talk to this person regularly, but their data allowance is so low.
