Neondistraction: Fizpez: You mean you wont need to pay $20 extra a month for unlimited texts that, even if you texted 24 hours a day for the entire month, would cost your provider about 25 cents total? that text messaging?

Don't worry, the phone companies will find other ways to bend their customers over.

/ the really nice ones will kiss you first
// lube will still cost extra


After a month of video chatting free with my girlfriend for free on skype while she was in India, I wonder how phone companies didn't make such sorcery against the law.

Direct call still $800/hour per Ma Bell

/exaggerating, a little

Lydia_C: gingerjet: FTFA The average 12 to 15-year-old send 193 texts a week

I send more than 193 IM, texts, and iMessages in ant given day. Somehow I'm not buying that 12 to 15 year olds aren't sending that many in an hour.

Do you really send that many a day? How many are one or two-word responses (something teens seem to do a lot)?

One of my admins at work likes to have extended discussions via text, and I find it disruptive to constantly have to stop what I'm doing to respond. Helluva lot faster to just actually dial the phone and speak.


Eh, you can respond when you like, and don't have to sustain filler conversation. Good for running battle conversations

Oh don't worry, the ISPs are working to take care of that with their monthly data caps.

I'm certain they will. I just couldn't comprehend how skype makes money, especially money at the expense of telcos that country by country, could unite to squash them.

APE992: Do pagers even function in the US anymore?
