Bell and Telus to charge for incoming SMS

Comments

Bag of moneyIf you thought the new Rogers data plans were a good step for Canadian wireless, it looks like the competition is taking two more back by starting to charge $0.15 per incoming text message. Oh, come on. That might be the norm for American carriers, but we get so few perks up here in Canadia – throw us a bone. I really hope Rogers doesn’t lose their lead and follow along with the other two…

    Tell me that if you have a BB that you have ‘unlimited’ SMS! You’d have to be crazy not to!! I’ve never heard of any American carriers charging for incoming texts…oh wait…I’m not silly enough to buy such a bad plan!!

    What BullSh%$

    I am from Toronto and I have been living in Bombay for the last 4 years and the carriers here are simply unbelievable! The extra services and the cool functionality they provide for the cheap rates they do is unmatched anywhere in the world. And its ALL due to COMPETITION.

    Rogers, bell and telus have it so good, its like they speak daily on what they should do to screw their customers together. Isn’t there a name for this illegal activity? How can both competing carrier on CDMA come out with the same pricing changes on incoming SMS’s. like I said, what bullshi%$

    thats my two cents anyways.

    cheers
