Backwards Canada strikes again, I honestly checked the calendar to make sure it wasn’t April 1st.
Oh my god. I can’t believe it. Things should not be getting worse.
I just heard on the news that Bell & Telus are going to be charging 15 cents to receive a text message.
I CAN’T EVEN TELL YOU HOW LIVID I AM.
This is stupid, beyond stupid, like honestly, I think Fred Flinstone has a better mobile plan than I do. And he has to chisel out his text messages.
I can’t control who sends me a text message, why should I get charged for it?
If you happen to have a plan that includes say, 500 text messages a month. The received messages will just eat away at that.
Rogers doesn’t plan on charging to receive messages, honestly I think that’s only because they can’t afford anymore angry customers after the iPhone price plan fiasco.
Their excuse for starting to charge to receive messages? Canadians are sending more now than they used to, so they just can’t afford to keep the current system in place. Canadians sent 369,000 messages when inter-carrier service came to Canada in 2002, and last year they sent 10.1 billion.
DEAR GOD NO! DON’T TELL ME CANADIAN’S ARE USING THIS NEW FANDANGLED TEXT MESSAGING TECHNOLOGY!
I can just see all the mobile providers sat around a table
“They’re catching on! We have to figure out how to stop them! I know we’ll charge them more!”
Mr. Rogers “Well we know they’ll pay it! Look at those data plans we’ve had, and our stupid new iPhone plans! They’ll fall for anything!”
Mr. Telus “Tee hee hee”
I’m done, honestly, I’m going to start carrying around two tin cans and a piece of string.
