A free alternative to Jott at Dial2Do

There is a new post over a TechCrunch where they catch on about the demise of Jott.  That’s old news.

But the comments yielded a choir of endorsements for a replacement service with a price point that the Scotsman can truly appreciate:  Free.  It called Dial2Do.  So thanks to Lenny, Fergus, and Greg; their tip is really handy one for us Jott ex-pats. 

No More Free Jott For You

The free version of Jott is going to end on February 2, CEO John Pollard told me today. The terrible advertising market, he says, means every customer has to pay their own way from now on. Customers will need to pay $4/month to continue the service, the current price for a premium account. This includes users of the Jott iPhone application.

  1. I just blogged about the same issues between Jott and Dial2do; Thanks for the tip!! I dont mind a wise business model, but I bet I will get more for my money with Dial2Do once they start charging.

  2. [...] We sort of expected that either cell companies (or these days maybe Google Voice) would eventually provide a similar service for free, just to be competitive, and drive the Jott subscription model from the market.  Even if they hadn’t, Dial2Do still does. [...]
