On CB forum user Alex811 has posted his story about Masked SMS , check this out :
"I wanted to share info how I saved $25 when I was abroad in a business trip using Masked SMS app.
I usually use my carrier's roaming plan when I travel abroad. For me Outgoing SMS in roaming are quite expensive, it is about $0.50 per sms.
So what I've done, I've created my own mask in this app and said to my family members that if they receive sms from the mask they should know it was from me and so they can reply to my regular number (reply to a number within
the same carrier is cheap or even for free).
I bought first 40 SMS package at developer's web-site (it cost me only $9.99). Single SMS would be $9.99/40 = $0.25, so it is less twice than I have with my mobile carrier in roaming.
During my trip I sent 98 SMS home and spent only $24.97 on SMS packages for Masked SMS app. If I used my carriers plan I would spend $49.
So 25 bucks left in my pocket, not that much, but money saved is money earned, right ? Thanks to Masked SMS devs!"
Well done Alex !
