    LOL I don't see how they'd do that but.. you need to have a talk with a rep. from Verizon. My ex girlfriend has ATT and we would send thousands of texts to each other a WEEK.. my bill wasn't high.

    I have the unlimited plan and haven't gotten charged for a single text, and I know my wife and kids text phones from other plans. Sounds like they made a mistake, call them and find out what the deal is

    Verizon Text Messaging Plans Verizon also has a variety of text messaging plans. They charge 20 cents per message for text, picture and video messaging. (received and sent) The texting bundles are:

    $5/month for 250 messages
    $10/month for 500 messages out of network (unlimited in network)
    $20 for 5,000 text, picture, and video messages plus unlimited mobile to mobile.

    OUCH! that's gotta hurt. I have limited 250 text, so you must have made over 1000's of text to out of network.

    Wish they have a built-in reminder such as if you are close to say...w/in 5-10 text of your limit for those of us without unlimited text plan - without having to go to your account to find out.

    I wish that $10 plan was totally unlimited. I'd be on that in a second.

    I have the $5 plan for 250 messages and I really have to be careful. I got a Google Voice account and that helps but people still send me messages to my cell number.

    I think the unlimited texting is built my our plan. We have the 1400 minutes with friends and family, along with two data plans. I seem to remember being told that unlimited text were included, so it may be more cost efficient to switch to a plan like mine.

    On the Family plan, we have to pay $30 for unlimited texts to anyone on any network. I originally had the $10 unlimited on Verizon and it was limited outside of the network, it was advertised that way when I signed up.

    Call Verizon back and get to a Supervisor or the Supervisor's Supervisor. I had somewhat of the same thing happen. I was changing my minutes on my plan and prior to the change I had unlimited texting period because I have a teenager. Well right after my bill cutoff I had to call Verizon on a different matter and the rep asked me how I was going to pay my bill. I was shocked and said like I always due, online, once I get it. He said Oh cuz did you know your bill was $4200.?? I was like WHAT?? He said yeah. Well after picking myself up off the floor I go through to several supervisors and it took several months to clear and the write offs get approved. Apparently when the rep that changed my minutes made the change, she did not transfer my additional options (including the unlimited texting) and thus all my daughters text msgs were charged. That was a nightmare.

    So basically complain and climb the supervisor ladder until you get someone who is willing to help. If they did not tell you it was "partial" unlimited you may be able to get some of that written off. Its worth the try.

    Thats my opinion.
