This thread is highly amusing...but really, YOU pay what VZW charges for text because YOU choose to.

Yes they are actually...

Google Voice works just like a phone text.

AIM gives you the option of using SMS protocol and sending to a mobile number.

Exactly... I bet if more people stopped paying for it the price will drop significantly or would be added to bundled plans.  Yet people are willing to pay $10-30 for texting plans.

Re: Texts should be free

I hear ya, but this was brought before Congress not too long ago for Anti Trust/Collusion/Price Fixing. There is another side to this. Carriers raise these rates in lock step. Now with the right amount of money, any problem can go away. I am investing in Forever stamps and I am just going to send mail letters.

Use Google Voice... It's exactly like texting like normal. Doesn't have MMS support but it will soon. Google has been working on it.

If you think about it... Everything is price fixed when you buy from somewhere. There's only so far you can go without losing money.

Re: Texts should be free

In your opinion, what is the easiest, most dumb proof program/way to skirt these charges that would reach the most people for free? AIM or Google Voice?
