Anyone know an alternative to Haywire - Free SMS text messaging App

I was wondering if anyone knows of any free SMS text messaging service that can provide you with a Canadian number for texts. Using Heywire, you won't be charged but if someone replies back to you, they are charged an international text messaging rate.

Also, Heywire eats up a lot of battery power.

I know this is an old thread, but I've been googling up and down looking for an app that's good for Canada!

I use Google Voice or TextNow! app on iPhone to send free SMS, but it originates from a US number. It can receive and send unlimited texts to both Canada/USA for free though, so the only one who might get dinged with a fee is whoever you're texting ;)
