Not everyone gets unlimited txt messages included in their plan. I don't have an iPhone, but my phone does have a limit on how many free txt messages per month. The unsolicited crap costs money for some of us. I finally had to get Verizon to block all txt messages to my phone to avoid overage charges; the messages were total spam. Supposedly they have options on the web site that can block some of it, but none of it worked. Sending unsolicited fax is illegal and it should be the same for cell phones. Sometimes I think Verizon gets a cut on the txt messages if they get responded to.Why get mad over such a tiny thing?
I know that perfectly well. My point was simply that advertising txt on phones do cost money for some people.old-wiz - reading comprehension wasn't your strong suit was it?
He was pissed that there were advertisement texts on the iphones that were displays in the apple store
am i missing something here? how does receiving a text cost anyone, other than the sender, any money? just delete it and forget about it...
Received texts don't cost money in the UK. It's a little country across the ocean from America, about 3500 miles away. They don't get charged in an awful lot of other countries, either.Oh boy! Your Mommy or Daddy must pay for your service? Texts cost money, either sent or received. The only way they wouldn't cost you anyMORE is if you have an unlimited text plan!!!
nice. loving the maturity in this post. i did consider completely ignoring it but i'll give this one more try. i pay for my own plan thank you very much, and the only time a text costs me any money is when i send one. i could send 0 texts and receive 1 million. i'd get billed for 0 text. it doesn't work this way in the US? simple question, now try responding in civilised manner.Oh boy!

yeah, that's pretty harsh. the cheaper prices you get on some things over there don't seem all that cheap anymore when you're getting ripped off on stuff like incoming text messages.Yeah here in the US we get ripped for small things like that; people think it's actually normal.
+1 my Bosnian, Macedonian, Croation, British, Kosovo, and Brazilian friends (I work with a lot of diversities can you tell?) were amazed when they found out I paid for receiving text messages.Received texts don't cost money in the UK.
