Here’s a video demo of FishText, showing how you can circumvent your carrier’s ridiculous charges for International SMS.

Considering that text messages cost my carrier absolutely nothing to provide, I find it a bit ridiculous that when abroad I have to pay an additional ¢75 per sent message, or purchase a temporary SMS travel package in advance.

Fortunately, there’s another, better way. Check out the video above to see FishText in action. It’s a Java app so it’ll work on pretty much every handset out there, even your stupid iPhoneand if you don’t want to pay for data roaming it’ll even work over WiFi.

How brilliant is that?
