Advantages to Send and Receive SMS on Dingtone
Save Money (Of Course!)
Acknowledge or not, money-saving is the direct reason driving some people to use Dingtone for calls and messages. A Dingtone premium plan allows subscribers to unlimitedly call and send messages to any number at a low cost, which is much lower than the cost of a plan provided by leading telecommunication carriers.
Message to Any Number
Generally speaking, prices differ a lot when it comes to domestic SMS and international SMS and it’s quite true that the latter calls for extremely high prices if an ordinary SIM card plan is used. Dingtone SMS allows its users to message anyone no matter where they are, locally or internationally.
Message from a Second Number
Everyone needs a second number but not everyone knows why to have a second number.

Step 3. Tap the “Call Settings” and then the “Calling Rates”.
