    I'm sure by the time your daughter is 16 they will have directed telepathy (you know, telepathically contact a specific person -- no equipment, just brain waves).

    And I'm just as sure that Rogers will have a plan for that, too.

    Weird timing, I just read an article that the company Vodafone in Europe plans to introduce this January 1st, 2010.

    I should disable my text too, I never use it. I have to disable my internet too. Anyone know how to do that? I got charged 60 cents on my bill for internet usage from my phone somehow going online. I NEVER use internet on my phone. Very annoying stuff.

    You phone them from your cell and say: "Disable my internet feature and disable my text."

    Thats B.S. I hate Wireless Services in Canada. The US has so much competition the fees are so cheap and the plans are amazing.

    About TXTing, I send and receive quite a bit, so much that I had to upgrade my 125 sent txt plan to 1000. I don't have voicemail, since it eats up airtime to check it, and I am cheap so I don't have a lot of minutes on my plan. Also, I have a girlfriend in Ottawa so txting is cheaper than long distance phone calls when I am not home.

    Yes, but they are not affected by this.

    No kidding man, I have 2500 text messages a month, and I still wound up with the charge for an additional 168...Dung is crazy, it's just so much easier to text people when you're at work/school/etc...
