Hello ushy86


It all depends. Is this a app or a normal text number? If its a app, it will use data if u use the app. If u text to a number on your text app, then it will charge u.

It has to do with stock news and picks. you text a number such as *665756* with a word and you get automated msgs.

Hello ushy86


In the text message you receive, does it tell you that u will be charged for the texts u send or receive? If it does not, it most likely is a free text from the service owners.

I get text messages from the Weather Network when there is a storm or bad weather, i get charged $3 per month for that tho.

I haven't texted to the number to receive *free alerts* as of yet, because I wanted to ask about it first.
By the way, the site and alert comes from foxpennystocks,
