    LOL, I do. I told my daughter that she was welcome to use her own money
    to buy a fancy phone and pay for the monthly charges. She wisely decided
    to stick with the parent provided PagePlus service and basic tri-mode
    camera phone. Amusingly, on some school trips and athletic events at
    away games, she's one of the few kids with a phone that has coverage, so
    her phone gets borrowed a lot. I'll be picking her up from some event
    and I have to wait while her teammates use her phone to call their parents.

    I told her that she should write a report for the school paper on cell
    phone coverage and cost, since so few parents and students are aware of
    the low cost providers like PagePlus.

    As to texting, her friends send a lot of e-mails, but texting isn't that
    popular. The school doesn't allow students to use their phones during
    school, only after school, and they have so much homework and so many
    extra-curricular activities, that there's not a lot of time after school
    for such nonsense either.

    Did you see Disney's "High School Musical" movie? There's a good section
    about cell phones in there.

    In any case, I doubt if even high school and junior high school students
    could send 165 text messages per day, but I guess it's possible when
    you're sending one message to a bunch of people at once.

    I do, and avoided any problems by using MetroPCS. Even so, the number
    of text messages per month has been well under 3000.

    Re: Unlimited texting

    If I am reading this correctly, Cingular is actually offering TRUE unlimited
    messaging for $19.99. This includes IM, SMS and MMS. I do not see where it
    restricts it to Cingular (at&t) phone only. Below is what is says:

    http://www.cingular.com/cell-phone-s...tId=cat1470003

    Messaging Unlimited
    You have the freedom to message any way to any one - text, picture, video
    and IM - without worrying what each message costs. That means every message
    counts the same. You can send and receive ANY combination of messages. Want
    to send all picture messages? No problem. All IMs? Go ahead and chat away -
    send and receive messages for less than pennies per day!

    Yes, this is new.

    Prior to this offering, the texting rates were:

    In Network MTM Out of Network

    ATTWS Sprnt T-Mob VZW ATTWS Sprnt T-Mob VZW
    ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- -----
    $5 0/Unlim 0 0 x 200 300 400 x
    $10 Unlim Unlim 0 Unlim 200 Unlim 1000 500
    $15 Unlim Unlim 400 Unlim 1500
    $20 Unlim Unlim 1000 5000
    $20 0 3000
    $25 Unlim 3000


    Now they are:

    In Network MTM Out of Network

    ATTWS Sprnt T-Mob VZW ATTWS Sprnt T-Mob VZW
    ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- -----
    $5 0/Unlim 0 0 x 200 300 400 x
    $10 Unlim Unlim 0 Unlim 200 Unlim 1000 500
    $15 Unlim Unlim 400 Unlim 1500
    $20 Unlim Unlim Unlim 5000



    AT&T/Cingular basically dropped their pricing significantly.
    Not as low as Sprint or T-Mobile, but more in
    line with Verizon who offers 5000 messages a month for $20 (which is the
    same as unlimited for most users!).

    I'm surprised Verizon doesn't call the 5000 texts plan "unlimited
    texting," considering they're the same outfit that calls 5GB of data
    "unlimited internet!" ;-)

    Very funny. 5GB is really nothing close to what a heavy user could use
    in a month, but to send 5000 text messages you'd be sending about 170
    messages per day.
