    EXACTLY!! I told them from the get go not to send me listings since I don't want the paper. They said that they wouldn't. So now I'm going to have to call them on Monday.

    Seriously. Holy crap. Did they send it in a small FedEx box or something?

    You should send them the payment in 192 envelopes, each one containing a check for 1/192nd of the bill. Stick a post-it note to the last check, saying, "Please don't send me this much paper ever again. Thanks!"

    Seriously though... I sure hope they don't do that again. It's ridiculous with unlimited texting. I can see if you have to pay by the text then, you'd want to know what's up but in my case, no. *sigh*

    192 pages? You must be pretty hot and popular. Good work, keep it up.

    Oh, and get an unlimited cellphone plan for God's sake.

    I DO have unlimited. That's why I got over .........oh nevermind. I'm too embarrassed to even SAY how many are on there.

    You check her phone bills? Isn't that a little invasive? 2700 sent messages, that's 90 messages average per day. That's 5.6 text messages for every waking hour. I want to see how she would survive by taking the phone away. You should definitely give that a try.

    I haven't sent a friggin' text message in my life (I'm 20 years old), apparently it is too much to ask for a basic phone that has caller id, phone book, and nothing more. I keep my phone conversation concise and with no mindless rambling whatsoever, I don't see how people my age and younger have that much to say. A friend of my mine once racked up a $700 phone bill, nutso. Oh yes, the carriers here charge $0.15 per text if you are not on unlimited. Right now, 2 carriers are slated to charge $0.15 on every incoming text in the coming month.

    Yeah. Incoming calls. Most of my text messages are INCOMING. I get spam too. That is where most of the texting is from - incoming! People sending me pics from their trips, people asking questions, trying to make appts. I end up calling them to just GET IT OVER WITH. But no. They still text me.

    I might just cancel it. I don't really use it for outgoing. The only reason I got it was to avoid phone calls but to be honest, it's more of a hassle to text.

    Wouldn't it be faster (and cheaper, if you don't have an unlimited texting plan) to just call the person and tell them whatever you have to say?

    That's just not the cool thing to do. Are you going to suggest that we all buy vanilla ice's cd next? You're stuck in the 90's.

    Text messages can be useful if you are in a location with spotty service...the message may get through where a phone call doesn't.

    The beautiful thing about texting is that it doesn't take you out of whatever you're involved in. For instance, I can be actively troubleshooting one problem and give advice on another though texting without the hassles of phone pleasantries. (You don't have to leave a meeting to answer a text.)

    Not to mention the inconvenience of wind noise while riding in a pace line, that's where texting really beats a phone call!

    I got two spam texts today, that looked like porno come-ons, so I had Sprint disable texting for my main mobile phone. It had been a very long time since my last spam text, but with two in one day, I figured the flood gates would open, so I stopped it. I should pay more attention, as I had been paying five bucks a month for who knows how long, for a service I almost never use.
