There is no denial that the Internet tariff war is something that has no end. Be it any country or any state, telcos are always behind each other to grab the market with the most lucrative offer available and make subscribers flow some bucks for them.
But instead of investing that money, have you ever considered a way where you can get access to the Internet without spending a single penny on data packs? If you are wondering how, then let us tell you that it is possible using the age old SMS service.
Does it sound too impossible? Here're 4 interesting SMS apps you need to have in your Android smartphone to get internet service. We bet this will knock every telecom provider down!
This is an Android application that uses SMS service to get you information on the internet. It's not as clumsy as it sounds.

This SMS service brings back the spirit of Google's SMS search in a fairly ambitious way particularly for those who can't afford to pay for highly expensive data plans.
You need to sign up for free. Once you do, TextEngine services include weather forecasts, sports scores, Wikipedia results and more.

Well, this is not essentially a typical SMS search engine. However, QKSMS makes the internet and SMS experience good looking. This app transforms the messaging experience with its unique themes. Not to mention the quick reply box, which lets you respond to any message without closing your current app.
