Text messaging makes life so much easier. Think of all the times you need to get somethin said but cant pick up the phone and call.
That bein said,
I still have 5 days left on this months billing cycle, and so far I have used 5,741 texts. In november I used over 7,000. Now, lets say for a minute, that I had no text messaging plan. Since I have Verizon that means each sent is 20 cents and each received is 10 cents. For simplicity sakes, we will say I sent 3,000 and received 3,000. My bill just for texting alone would be $900. Fortunately for me, I pay $20 a month for unlimited texting. So I am not getting ripped off.
My point is I believe it depends on how your looking at it. $900 is getting ripped off, indeed. Then again, grandma who sends 4 texts per month while paying the $20 for unlimited texting is also getting ripped off, indeed. Its all about how you look at it.
Thats my 20 cents.
