IQMetrix: Two days ago (Oct. 9) Jenna Wortham of the New York Times made me consider something I take for granted every day: paying to send and receive text messages.
texting is 10$ a month for unlimited for me which is 1600 messages which i never get close too. if I ever do facebook messenger/ twitter is all I need after that. I don't get why everyone wants their own BBM service when services that are better exist with out having to get your friends to install apps. but good luck to them its apple and lemmings it will take off. hopefully carriers don't try to make new rules to take away free texting services after their revenues and profits fall.
I use WhatsApp a lot, cause it's so much more cheaper than texting, and because it's cross platform I can stay in touch with anyone on a BB, Android or iPhone.
I send and receive about 15k txts. I wish I didn't have to pay for them.
The point is there is no reason to text anymore. Just email, IM, etc.
It should be included in our data plans. -_-
