    iPhone 4s questions
    I currently own a PoS HTC inspire 4g. where I live, I get 0 signal. So my question is, does the iPhone 4S allow you to use wifi to send text or to make calls? If it does, what is required (need some sort of account for skype or whatever)?

    Thanks

    If you have a data connection, either cellular or wifi, you can use iMessage to text other iOS devices for free. Not sure about using another service or app to text other phones. Skype is one of many ways you can use your wifi to make calls.

    If your network allows you to send webtexts then you can download an app that lets you send them from your phone. For calls you can use skype. You could also use Viber but the other person would also have to be using Viber.

    FaceTime for iPhone probably will do. Do not sure is video can be switched off during the call...
    Apple - iPhone 4S - Smile and say hello on the phone with FaceTime.

    You remember incorrectly. Skype does not charge anything for Skype-to-Skype calls. There is a charge for making calls from Skype to "real" telephones, and sending SMS messages. I got unlimited North American calling to telephones through Skype for $30 per year. Since I can use Skype on my iPhone or iPad as well, I find this to be a great way to call from Canada to the US or vice versa at no additional charge, even on my iPhone.
