I also read somehwere that sending a txt message cost about 6 times (per Kb)
what it cost to send data to the hubble telescope.

I have to pay for txting on my phone at $10/month(work pays for the phone),
even though most of them are sms's from groupwise mobile server pushing mail to
my phone. :-(

Anyone else think this is dumb? it would be cheaper for me to drop the texting
plan and use my data plan to email them via <phone#> I think is
crazy that I have to pay for received texts too, whether I want them or not (I
get junk texts sometimes)
