In the past, I've had annoying spams and text messages sent to my number so I had Verizon block my text messaging feature. Prime example, today, I received 5 text messages from the same person thinking he/she was reaching someone they know. I finally had to reply and say I'm that that person they are trying to reach. Just found today by talking to a Verizon rep that when I got my new Droid (at the end of Nov) that the blocking feature wasn't carried over to my new calling plan. So, all those messages plus the one I replied to cost 20 cents each.
I asked the Verizon rep how much to add text messaging to my plan. $5.00 per month for 250 text messages not to exceed 160 characters.
Bottomline: How many of Droid users have text messaging?
Is it worth? I am already paying $100/month for 2 lines.
I don't text message at all, mainly because I think it is stupid. I have email. I can email or call anyone I am trying to reach anytime. Why text? Maybe I can see the value when I am bury alive under an earthquake? But by then it's too late. No?
