  2. Skype – With the innovation of mobile Skype, Skype has also entered the race of the big leagues. With free calls and instant messaging to anyone having Skype, it’s termed as one of the best. Skype also cuts across several mobile platforms just like Whatsapp. This feature is in entire control of the Microsoft cooperation and with the addition of the camera, one can be able to video conference anytime. Additional rates are incurred when one is trying to call landlines and mobile phones which can be cleared using a debit card.
  3. Ebuddy messenger – This is one of the mobile messengers that also crosscut between platforms e.g. Android, iOS and Java. It also provides a cheaper way to communicate as compared to SMS. Ebuddy supports WLM, Facebook, twitter, Gtalk, AIM, and yahoo Messenger.
