On August 1, 2005, the charge to receive TXT Messages will increase from $0.02 to $0.10 per message. This will apply to domestic and international TXT Messages (and, if applicable, to any TXT messages in excess of the monthly allowance for Verizon WirelessÂ TXT Messaging bundles). The charge for sending TXT Messages, both domestically and internationally, will not change.
hmmm... Seems like the cost for data transmission (especially antiquated and inferior data transmission) should be going down, not quintupling.
