Reduce Mobile Phone SMS and Call Costs

What would you say if there is an easy way to reduce mobile phone SMS and call costs ? I'm using a service called Cellity for some time now and was able to reduce my mobile phone bill tremendously. I do write the occasional SMS which usually costs between €0.10 to €0.20 per SMS. Cellity reduces this to the cost of the data transfer rate of the SMS which is just a few Kilobytes the most.

I have 200 Megabyte free which means that I can send hundreds of SMS per month without paying a single dime. Phone Calls are also cheaper than before. A call from a mobile phone from the USA inside the USA costs 4.8 cents per minute the same cost is valid for a call from the United States to the United Kingdom.

Cellity can be downloaded and installed on your mobile phone for free which means that you can use the free SMS option. The call option requires that you have to add funds before you can make the cheaper mobile phone calls but I suppose it should be a good option for everyone who uses his mobile phone to make calls.

Cellity comes with another interesting function that I have not tried yet. It is called Remote Call which is useful if you are visiting a foreign country with your mobile phone. Instead of telling Cellity to connect your mobile phone with the recipient you can ask to be connected with a local phone instead which avoids possible roaming charges.

The reason why this is possible is because Cellity calls your phone back and then calls the number that you want to call. I can only say that Cellity is working nicely for me so far.
