    Default swirlymms for iphone 3g

    I have downloaded swirly mms for my i phone 3g although it is not set up yet as it is trial only.
    I got it from cydia.my phone is jailbroken
    My question is, what is swirly mms and how can I benefit from it?
    Seems you can send pics and audio but I can do that now from email and text.
    1.Is this simply another interface that some people prefer?
    2.It seems to cost money?
    3.I have unlimted data and text. Why would I want to pay for another service?
    4.I travel to China a great deal and then of course my unlimited package does not apply.
    would the use of swirly mms be cheaper than sending text from overseas?
    would it be cheaper than sending emails from overseas?

    All I can find online is explanations how to install it but hard to find out if I want it...

    SwirlyMMS was developed and designed as a tool before Apple actually enabled MMS on the iPhone.

    Swirly won't save you money, even overseas. There is truthfully no benefit.

    If you want free text messaging, download "GV Voice". It's a free google voice interface. Overseas, the calls will cost you money, but the texts should be free. Especially if you use google voice while connected to Wi•Fi.

    As far as sending picture messages, especially over seas, you'd be better off connecting to Wi•Fi and using e-Mail. It's guaranteed to be free.

    Hope this helped.
