We are constantly fed more and better features for our smartphones. This universal device has become a crucial instrument in our daily lives, and our carriers know this. They are constantly making sure we have to pay for things that previously were free thanks to some clever app. It seems that Microsoft’s acquisition of Skype for $8.6 billion is going to become quite a bad decision. Carriers are soon going to start blocking any calls made for free through Skype, which is going to make a lot of people angry. Sure, they have to make money too in order to survive in this harsh economic climate, but one might wonder where it will all end.
If this comes as a shock to you, don’t worry. There are always going to be people in the world who are coming up with solutions and ways to keep you doing almost the exact same thing as you were doing before, namely making calls to friends and loved ones for free. You might be familiar with the word “lifehacking,” and that is exactly what we are going to be doing here today.
It so happens that some clever people have come up with a great way to get almost 90% of the iPhone‘s functionality pretty much for free. Now wouldn’t that be something? That goes way beyond the scope of your free Skype service being capped, right? This will actually lower your carrier costs as well. You don’t even need an iPhone in order to pull these hacks off. You can actually make these calls from a 4th generation iPod Touch as well. Yup, that is how clever people can get, it just takes some setting up and you’ll be kicking the calls for free once again in no time at all.
This infographic called How To Get 90% Of The iPhone’s Functionality Without The Monthly Bill will tell you all you need to know to roll in the free pit. It was created by Konstant Nero and is one of those almost “too-good-to-be-true” lifehacks. I can’t say with a 100% certainty that this will work, but when I look through the steps and how it is all setup, it certainly looks plausible. I guess all you need to do now is start lifehacking and start saving some money on that outrageous phone bill you are sweating over at the end of each and every month. Everything doesn’t have to cost money, and this is definitely proof of that.
