Texts: Data or Text?


Texts: Data or Text?

So, me and my wife are looking to lessen our cost by removing our unlimiting family texting from our bill.


I have unlimited Data, she has the data 200 mb.


I don't see any features managing the amount of texting one can do outside of "Unlimited"


So, if one was "Limited" does a standard rate occur for each text? Or does it chew away at your data usage?

Re: Texts: Data or Text?

Standard text/SMS messages count as regular messages. They do not count as data unless you use third party apps such as Google Voice/iMessage if you are using iPhones.

Standard rates occur for each incoming/outgoing text message, at $0.20 for regular SMS messages and $0.30 for MMS messages.
