    They do charge for them unless you are on a Vision plan and have
    specifically asked for SMS messaging to be added to your account. If
    you have Vision, you get 100 messages (sent/received) free, and then its
    10 cents per message after that. For $5, you can add unlimited SMS
    messaging to your Vision plan. I do think you have to call and activate
    SMS messaging on your plan regardless to get the 100 free messages per
    month since it is a special add on to your plan.

    If you do not have Vision, each message sent or received is 10 cents...
    $5 for 100 messages or $10 for unlimited.

    Well then the unlimited SMS package ($5/month for Vision customers,
    $10/month for non-Vision users) would come in very handy. I am actually
    impressed with Sprint for this pricing... while I think $5 is a little
    expensive for just 100 messages (for non Vision users), the option to
    add unlimited messages for a base price is great. I don't know any
    other provider to offer this beyond a one or two month signup promotion.
