Bell Mobility and Telus Mobility will soon begin charging their customers for incoming text messages under new pricing plans slated for August.CTV.ca | Bell, Telus to charge for incoming text messages
Ok, I’m a bit sick of the bellyaching over the *huge drama* of getting charged for incoming text messages. OMFG. You would have thought that the carriers have demanded a human sacrifice in order to enable your cell phone.
I did one quick check. The odds of a user not already being on a plan that includes unlimited text messages, or at the very least, unlimited incoming text mesages is rare. And if you are one of the schmos who don’t have this feature included in your plan, then you are going to cough up an additional $5/month for it. [TELUS pricing].
I’m also thinking there are a few ways to disable some of the spammy stuff you might be getting…. there is a wicked article on US carriers written by David Pogue, I’m now figuring out the Canadian options.
