If you're addicted to your phone but dread your monthly phone bill, then you'll love Blyk, the UK service that offers you free text messaging and calls. They are the world's first company to offer a service like this. The catch? You have to be between 16 and 24 and be willing to receive ads from the company. You won't even need to sign a contract. Pretty sweet deal!

The service, launched today, offers 43 free minutes a month and 217 texts. No word of them spreading to North America yet, but they do plan on offering the service in Germany, France, Italy and Spain in the future.
