    Hello Group -

    I've been a spcs customer for about 5 years. Recently I purchased a
    Sanyo 8100 (based on the things I've read here - and appreciate the
    discussion - very good phone). I renewed my agreement and added vision
    to get the rebate. So, here's the question:

    I've noticed that the email messages I receive (I am fully aware that
    I cannot send any and really don't need to) to my
    nnnnnnnnnn@messaging.sprintpcs.com have been counted as "wireless web
    messages". Since I do not want vision anymore (not that useful to me)
    will the text messages I receive after cancelling vision be charged to
    my monthly bill?

    I suspect that if someone "txts" me I will get charged, but I am
    wondering about the "nnnnnnnnnn@messaging.sprintpcs.com" messages I
    recieve - like emails, and pre-arranged notices that send an email
    from a server if an event occurs.

    I have read some things here about it being free even if you don't
    have vision, but am wanting to confirm that - with the rollout of SMS
    it is still the same.

    Thanks for reading and any input would be appreciated.

    Best Regards,

    Ian

    Those messages don't bill as SMS. Yes, they are unlimited for Vision=20
    phones.

    I took O/Siris' response to mean that I won't be billed at all for
    receiving unlimited messages. As a non-vision subscriber using a
    vision phone. Correct O/Siris?

    I think that is not correct.

    If you have no vision or wireless web service at all and someone sends
    you a message it will cost you a ridiculous amount to read it. You
    can ignore it and not be charged. Or else it will not arrive at all.
    I think it used to not arrive at all but I believe that changed.

    But I would like to hear an official response.

    Interesting what can happen when one actually *reads* a post.

    Correct. Vision phones do not get charged for those=20
    "MDN@messaging.sprintpcs.com" messages.

    Osirius twisted the answer only saying vision users wouldn't be charged.

    So Vision phones get free text messages even if they are not paying
    for Vision service? That's kind of nice. That would be a reason to
    get a Vision phone even if you don't want/need Vision service.

    So where do NON-Vision phones fall? If someone sends a text message
    to MDN@messaging.sprintpcs.com to my NON-Vision phone does it arrive?
    Does it cost me to retrieve it?

    Or does it just go nowhere which is what used to happen. I subscribe
    to no wireless web either.
