An economic tarrif?

I currrently use a Pay as you Go and see that its costing me 14 pence to send a Text message.  Can anyone advise me if there is a more cost effective tarrif.

As I am very hard of hearing I try not to use voice preffering to use text.

There are some pay monthly tariffs that include unlimited texts if you decided to follow this route

@Anonymous http://www.tescomobile.com/help-and-support/1082-pay-as-you-go/1091-tariffs/pay-as-you-go-triple-credit

With our Triple Credit tariff you get free credit when you top-up – you can use it on UK calls, texts and data.
 
When you top-up £10, £15 or £20, we triple that top-up:

@Anonymous  What can I use my free credit on?

  • UK calls to standard UK landline and mobile numbers starting 01, 02 and 03 
  • UK to UK video calls
  • Calls to our Customer Care team in the UK
  • Calls to voicemail from the UK
  • Text messages and MMS to UK mobiles
  • UK mobile internet browsing
Also, any available free credit you have will always be used before any paid top-up

They are thinking about economy such as unlimited texts not topping up to get free credit then use it all up, if you have a smartphone you could try using whatsapp or FB Messenger too, the messages would be free using those services
