Depends on how you write it. If the app uses a web service for sending SMS messages in bulk, it may be cheaper. If the app uses the phone's carrier to send it, then the price will be the same.

Yes, there are numerous such providers that will be happy to take your business. Search for "bulk SMS sending" or some such phrase to find them.

How is that "without your provider"?

It may be cheaper, at least in bulk; depends on how many you intend to send.

No. Telco services simply can not be provided for free; why do you think they can?
