As cell phone plans continue to get more expensive -- or at least feel that way -- companies are popping up that offer free mobile service. That's right, free. At least for the time being. It allows people to ditch their phone provider plans and contracts in order to access calls and texting services via apps.

Fongo is one such free mobile service based in Canada. Although it is still picking up steam among the population, Fongo offers a promising alternative to expensive plans. Of course, there is some added effort in using an app over more traditional phone services. Yet the effort might be worth it, especially in a day and age where people tend to text more anyhow.
