Your cellphone company is ripping you off.

Something I have known for decades and have told many has finally came to light in mainstream media.. How much Cellphone Text messages really cost was published in the NYtimes and hopefully will make people finally scream at the cellphone companies.

Your text messages cost the cellphone companies nothing. They go over the data comms channel that already move data to and from phones about status and other information. you sending a text message costs zero, nada, nothing to the company because they need to maintain the channel for the phones to work for regular phone calls.

American cellphone companies gladly rip you off charging their incredibly insane rates to send and receive text messages. And they do it because you quietly pay it without complaining.
