I liked my speakout phone and the minutes etc… however i could not send any text overseas even thought my cell phone 7-11 phone which i unlocked it as well as with my sony gsm phone.
I called speakout so many times but no luck. I not only sent a number of text overseas but had to keep calling my friend to see if she received it and then our calls would go over 1-2 hours.
So i had to give up that phone and service. just becos of not being able to txt internationally.
I do not use my cell phone often. But now will do so as we are getting rid of our land line.
Anyway now i have switched to rogers and they charge me $7 apart from the other charges of a basic family plan i have is there a way to avoid this call display charges anyone know ?
Thank you for your help
I am aware that this is a speakout site – if anyone knows of a way i would appreciate it.

thank you iamdrumming for your reply yes speakout just worked well except for txt overseas.
I used 3 different phone and my friend never received any - 2 gsm phones and the other unlocked 7-11 phone.
I spoke to rogers and they are charging me $7 for call display only phone numbers will show and a mini voice mail. just today was the firest day the person told me about the mini voice mail allows only 3 messages, will be kept for 3 days and not longer than 3 mins.
So i just took the package. had not choice. and have int' txt only as a paid use service.
Yes many speakout member were kind to tell me how their txt worked but unfortunately mine did not work.
Morevover when i was overseas i was impressed with the text msg which i used to get from my husband who is a rogers client. So i decided to make the switch.
Thank you again for your help.
