Snapchat also provides delivery confirmation for every message sent, letting you know if your message has been delivered and when it has been opened.

WHAT DOES SNAPCHAT COST? DO I NEED A DATA PLAN?

The Snapchat application is free to download and install. If your smartphone, iPod or iPad is using Wi-Fi to connect to the Internet, you may not experience any additional cost for usage. Otherwise Snapchat uses the data plan that you purchase with your smartphone. If your data usage exceeds what is allotted by your data plan, you could be subject to additional fees by your carrier.

There is no monthly fee for using Snapchat and Snapchat does not charge users. However, standard text messaging fees apply for mobile number verification. Mobile number verification text messages are sent to a U.S. number-- if you are located outside of the United States, your service provider may charge you an international SMS fee. Please contact your mobile service provider with any questions regarding  your bill.
