    It is now up to a minimum of 16 per day; that is all the memory will hold.
    Depending on how often I delete them all, I have received as many as 48 in
    a day. I looked at the .pdf of my bill online, and saw where they have
    charged me for 213 (that averages out to a little over 7 per day in a 30
    day month) SMS messages. The number seems to be increasing. We haven't
    read that many; not even half that many; maybe 1/4 of that many. I was
    assured that as long as I deleted them before reading, they wouldn't be
    billed.

    In addition to that, they "Forgot" to credit me the $25.00 per phone that
    they advertised when we purchased a pair of i60c phones from telesales.

    Also, they "forgot" to include all the "credits" that were made on last
    month's bill by customer service.

    I have dealt with some fairly shifty characters in the past. I would put
    Nextel up against the sleaziest dark alley dweller in terms of integrity,
    sincerity and honesty.

    I plan on spending another hour or two with customer service when they open
    in the morning. I can't wait to hear the latest "talking points"; and what
    contradictions are in store for this week's treatment of Spam. In the
    meanwhile; estimates of $1.4 million in overcharges per day via the text
    scam times 7 more days, and we may be talking real money. That is
    $9,800,000 in additional revenue for every week that Corporate can keep
    Customer Service convinced that SMS can't be removed without loosing Voice
    Mail.


    Looks like Nextel will redefining Spam as "Scam"; just the same as they
    redefined Unlimited to be "limited to time already paid for" with their
    "Unlimited Direct Connect"
    Lawyers could learn a thing or two from these guys. They make the whole
    Lawyer business look like a model of integrity.

    What I find most interesting is the fact that no one else is complaining
    about getting the volumes claimed here. Is anybody else seeing 200+ spam
    messages a month? Between my three phones, I have received two in over
    three years of service.
