Above and Beyond with T-Mobile
Wow, the cost of text messaging has gone up! It now costs 20 cents a text message with T-Mobile (at least that is what they charged me for 100 text messages over my 400 a month limit). It has cost me $20 "above and beyond" my normal cell phone bill to send 100 extra text messages. With that being said, it was a good thing that I called to find out for sure why the extra charge, as this month I am already "above and beyond" 200 text messages of my 400 a month limit. They said they where going to charge me $44 extra for this next bill unless I upgraded to 1000 text messages a month (for an extra monthly charge of $9.99). I could not refuse (as $9.99 is a lot better then $44), and now I will have a couple extra text messages to spare. Yikes though, 20 cents a messages just is not cost efficient if you ask me. Add a text message plan if you don't want to get ripped off, and if you text a lot, don't skimp on the plan or you will regret it later.
