    Ok so back on topic, I am at 707/1000 as of last night. I have 9 more days left to go and have been typically averaging around 30 - 45 messages per day. Anyone want to guess if I will go over? ;)

    Thank you Sir, missed my calling you think? :D

    I don't even have to go past my generation, my husband is a brilliant Physicist but he can never remember that all he has to do is push & hold the "1" button to listen to his voicemail. He goes through all the messaging menu and finally stumbles on to the right option. Then he forgets that the password is already programmed in wants to know what it is. :)

    You're slighty ahead of me. But my brother has already used 1,945 through 18 days of this billing cycle!

    Wow, that's a lot of SMS for all 3 of you, but 1945 in 18 days is insane.

    I guess I am more old school and prefer to talk more then text, or my problem is I don't want to go over, since my kids text a lot & I try to conserve my usage.

    This is a pleasant surprise. :)

    Thank you Tony, now we can continue on with our hopeless addiction to text messaging.

    So, continuing on with my saga, I had 102 messages on Friday, so yesterday I was 851/1000 with 6 days left to go...hmm :D .

    This morning my OLAM says "data can not be posted", which has been pretty normal for a Sunday. :rolleyes:

    Well, since I have a unlimited text, plix/flix to Verizon customers, and 500 out of network messages, I use anywhere between 50-100 per month out of network and close to 50 per month in network.

    Most of my messages are to Verizon customers so usage is generally low. The out of network messages are when I get a e-mail notification (carbon copy) and when I e-mail myself custom ringtones that I have made.

    A question, are those 79 being billed at 15 cents or 10 cents? Now if you have to pay at 10 cents that would be $7.90 and it might be worth it for you to take the M2M SMS for $5.

    Now there is one thing that is going weird on my account, my int'l SMS is counting against my SMS bucket and it does not look like I am being charged for them. It happened before, actually for the past 3 months and I am not going to call and complain about it.:biggrin:

    The overage is billed at 3 cents a minute, so not too bad.

    You do know that all incoming international SMS does come out of the pool if you have one, right? Ofcourse if both in & out are coming out of your pool then you have a bargain going on there. :D

    3 cents a minute for SMS usage? Wow. ;)

    Our last shared SMS usage was 1007 out of 1000 & again is outgoing only.
    Since the 7 were MMS It was billed higher then the standard SMS rate.

    Correct all in is against the plan and my Out are counting against my plan. I just hope they will not catch it and then end up with a nice extra charges.

    As far as I know it would just count as a regular SMS, no additional charges. Be careful, though, those IM's can quickly deplete your SMS bucket!

    The messages themselves will only cost you a text message, but when you load the program, it uses data to connect, and see who's online. And it will "refresh" every few minutes, it only uses a small amount of data per session usually, but after a month, those can quickly add up, especially if you don't have a data package.

    Oh so the Instant messages themselves will use SMS and the application itself uses data? So in essence there will be two different charges for using Instant Messaging- SMS and Data? That sucks!
